CUE option and clock: how to record a short loop, then immediately a long one?
Most of my songs have a "default" clock length of 4 bars. Sometimes, before recording the first melodic loop (some guitar chords), I want to add some simple percussion, that usually only takes 1 or 2 bars.
So when recording a 1 bar percussive loop, and then while recording it I set the clock to 4 and CUE it, it doesn't start immediately start recording after the percussive loop, but the percussive loop is played 3 times before the recording starts.
While I see the logic behind this behavior, I don't think it's convenient. I know that I can force recording a loop by disabling CUE and hit record, but then I will also have to end the record manually (which usually is inconvenient), as the clock length of 4 doesn't apply anymore.
I feel there's a need for "something in between" the two? Maybe a way to CUE recording to exactly X bars, regardless of its clock length?
