Logic 9.1.7 32 No audio playback before count in.


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


Just a quick issue I seem to be having with Logic,




Ive been using logic for about 4 years, use it professionally and for personal use I have alot of experience with the DAW and feel that this is not a knowledge issue (I hope :oops: )



I have always had a setup where by if I record a guitar track and am not happy with the take from a certain point I could drop the the marker where i wanted to record, hear a count in of one (or more bars on preference) and play. The thing is I could HEAR THE AUDIO ON THE TRACK BEFORE it started to record on the point where I chose.


now for some unexplainable reason I need to use the autopunch feature. Now I am well aware of that feature and dont mind if I HAVE to use it but its frustrating that it just stopped working- whats worse is that people were saying on the apple support site that it never was a feature and that Autopunch was always necessary. can you guys please tell me if I was always working with a bug or if there is a way to fix this so that autopunch is not required and a simple click of record will let me hear the playback before recording.

Thanks for your response- in telling you 150% sure I wasn't!! I only learnt the shortcut for auto punch yesterday out of necessity!!:) I've had 100's of clients in and never used it. It's truly bizarre as other sites have said the same as yourself!! I actually think it may have been a "good bug" as it only happened after my upgrade to mountain lion that it stopped- oh well auto punch it is!! BTW thr is a feature that should absolutely be in there then!?!

Dave your not wrong, I recently upgraded to Logic X, Im having exactly the same problem as you. Can only get autopunch to work when I set the markers, I used to be able to select the end of the track where I wanted to punch in, have a one bar count in and away I went. This is a pro tools feature AND WAS a logic one.


Im thinking its a bug.
