"Go to" take.

Postby Classic » Thu Oct 20, 2016 11:44

How move the playhead cursor in the timeline to listen a take? There is a quick way? A sort of "go to n. XX take".

Maybe working with markers is an option for you? You could use normal markers for this, but you have to place them manually at the start of each clip.

You could also use cd-markers for this. First create a new cd and then use the function cd mark groups. This creates a cd marker at the beginning and end of all the clips in the timeline.

In the tab window CD, you can doubleclick on a marker or track to jump to that specific location in the timeline.
Hope this is usefull for you.

PMX doesn't know what a take is unless you use Markers of some sort and naming and defining them. TAB and ShiftTAB get round the clips quickly in the timeline. I haven't used playlists but they may help as well. I am old school. I write down the file number in the log and just navigate to it with TAB.

Or..., use Playlists and never hunt for a take again.

When you are setting up a new Project for a recording session, enable the option to "Create an empty Playlist for each recording" in the Settings > Project > Record window. While you're at it, enable "Cursor Auto-Return after Playing" in the main View Menu. If you haven't done so already, create a Track Group and assign all your tracks to it - this will be handy later on when you modify your session so it becomes a Source-Destination editing project.

While recording, you'll only see the most recently recorded Take, and recording a new one will appear to over-write it, but the material is not lost. It's instantly accessible via the Playlist button in any Track Header (left side of Timeline) - a click brings up a Pop-up list of all your Takes. No more hunting through a endless string of takes to find the right one.

To convert such a recording session to a Source-Destination editing session, just go to the Track Groups Tab, and "Click Here to Duplicate a Track Group". Make sure that the new Group locates its Tracks BELOW the original session tracks, otherwise your Playlists will be lost. Just keep your original Track Group (now the Source Group) at the top of the Timeline display, and all will be well. While you're in the Track Groups Tab, for both Groups enable Auto-Solo and Auto Collapse. Enable Free Zoom for one of the Groups. For other tweaks look at page 195 in the Manual.

For more information about Playlists, see page 633.

My workflow is to make all recordings directly into a source destination session.
I've made a template with one destination and 15 sources. Every new take of a piece is recorded on a new source. After recording you can roughly line up all the takes and now every take is accessible for your client or conductor. He/she wants to listen to the ending of all takes? No problem. Clicking on a source automaticly solo's these tracks and all the endings are close to eachother because all take are place under the first take (instead of after the first take in a 'normal' timeline). Comparing takes is now very quick. Also editing of the takes can now directly be done into the same session.
