Segue Editor and Recording Voicetracks
In order to record a voicetrack first click on the Microphone icon on the very top. If you have tooltips turned on then hovering over it will give you the tooltip Segue Editor and Recorder.
This will open up the segue editor on the bottom half of your screen. In this, you will see three waveforms load, a timeline, a white play head bar and some transport controls underneath along with some other buttons.
You can click and drag the 2nd and 3rd waveforms to adjust their start positions. When you do this you will see a legend appear to show the new start position in the timeline and also what the gap time will be when you save this adjustment. This is extremely useful for fine-tuning logs to the second.
Zoom Out / Zoom In
These two buttons do just that on the segue editor. They allow you to adjust the granularity and accuracy of what you can see.
Play / Stop
Starts playing from the play head. You can click anywhere on the segues to position the play head and can play from anywhere you want to. Pressing this while playing, stops the playback.
Start Recording (Keyboard shortcut - Spacebar)
This is a multi-state button as it initially starts the recording processes but then behaves in one of two ways depending on the settings you have chosen in Settings:
- Start recording microphone immediately (ON)
When this is enabled the system does just that. From this point forward clicking this button again will start the next item playing whilst allowing you to continue recording. Pressing once more after that stops the recording and prompts you if you wish to commit this recording.
- Start recording microphone immediately (OFF)
When this is off then from the second click of this button the recording is started, so on the pre-roll nothing is recorded. Clicking again after recording has begun starts the next item playing whilst allowing you to continue recording. Pressing once more after that stops the recording and prompts you if you wish to commit this recording.
Previous / Next Voicetrack Note
Navigate through the log looking for the previous and next valid voicetrack note. This helps you locate your voicetrack places.

Duck / Raise Triple Stack Volumes

Save the segue after making timing adjustments. When this is flashing red, it is alerting you that you have unsaved changes.
