Cursors, Record, Render


Now we will talk about the cursors.


You may have already noticed the Float Cursor. This is the floating line that sticks on your mouse pointer.


You saw this cursor during the playback section.


You will see this helpful cursor when you "drag & drop" a clip.


To determine a new start position you have to set the work cursor (represented by a dashed red line) by the 'Touch' action. So point to the position where you want to start playback or insert a new clip and press <SHIFT>. The touch action will also set a track as active and keep the work cursor position when you point into the Track Panel area. The Work Cursor is the dotted line.


Let me introduce the 'Number Collector'. This functionality allows you to activate Tracks without using the mouse. For example press the number 2 on your keyboard and the JMB Info will confirm this by showing your input.
Number Collector

Now all you have to do is hit <SHIFT> and it's done!

HINT: For now, the recording will only be done on the touched Track.

To initiate the recording process you have to press <R>. This will first "arm" your touched Track for recording. Hit another <R> to start recording. (Note: The recording process will change soon.)

BTW: You can also select track 123456 by typing 123456<SHIFT> if you want ;-)


'RENDER' is the Protux way to 'Export' your audio content.

There are two types of Render:
Render ALL:
This will Render your complete song into a new file.
So press <ENTER> to open the 'Save as' dialog and save your audio wherever you want in either WAV or PRAF format.

BTW: Remember, PRAF is the audio format used by Protux only.

Render TRACK:
This option is useful for the next phase when Protux offer its first effects like Reverb, Dynamics, SharpSing, NoiseReduction, and so on. It can be used to render the "touched Track" into a new file.
