Once you have your hardware set up properly, recording audio into Digital Performer is a breeze . You can choose to record your audio onto an existing track or you can create a new track.
When you create a new file in Digital Performer, by default there are already a few different empty tracks set up. You can select any of these tracks to record on; just remember that audio needs to be recorded on an audio track, and MIDI needs to be recorded on a MIDI track.
When recording MIDI tracks, you simply have to enable the track and then begin recording.
With audio you not only have to enable a track for recording, you must also choose a source for your audio input.
If you need to refresh your memory on how to set up automatic recording, see the "Auto Record" section in Chapter 5, "The Control Panel."
Once you have used all of the existing tracks, you can create your own so that you can continue recording.
It's a good idea to name your tracks so that you can easily keep "track" of them.
Nobody is perfect, and with Digital Performer, you don't have to be. Not only can you edit your tracks after they've been recorded, but you can also record multiple takes of the same track and then decide later which one you would like to use.
