having trouble recording over a previous track performance

Unread post by kthelp » Sun Jul 21, 2019 7:02 pm

I have a Yamaha Montage 8 88 key workstation.

I am creating a multi track sequenced performance and am not able to replace an individual track and re record my performance on that specific track. I have recorded a drum track as basic track and then trying to record strings over that.

I am successful in recording the string track as overdub on drum track. When I want to do over my string recorded track performance the previous recorded string track is still playing....even when I delete the previously recorded track and try to record additional track new.

When I select overdub it still stores and replays the previous string performance that I did. What am I doing wrong please?

Tthanks for your help.

If you are using the Performance Recorder on the Montage, it is quite limited in editing abilities, as it is not a full blown sequencer. Yamaha offloaded most of the editing functionality to be done on a DAW...

I submitted an idea to yamahasynth.ideascale.com to allow the ability for fixing mistakes via punch In/out 'per track', where as right now if you try to punch in/out, it overwrites all the tracks you have recorded via Overdub functionality.
If you would like to see this functionality, please 'Up Vote' my idea in the link below (note - you will need to first login to ideascale to vote). Yamaha are watching that site closely for ideas that people like to see in a future OS update! ;)
