Default Auto-punch recording without stopping?

Hi

I know there are recording modes for auto-punch selected items and time selection auto punch. However, what I want to do is start auto-punch in from a predetermined position without stopping until I hit the record button again.

Anyone knows if there is such a feature in reaper or how to do something similar in reaper?

You can use command markers. The command ID for "record" is "1013", you need to put "!" in front of it to make an action marker.

So just put a marker where you want to record then name it: !1013

Wow, thank you! I had read about smart markers from manual but never thought about utilizing that feature in my case.

You're welcome cjunekim, and Yeah, good suggestion Coachz, when you're done recording, best to either delete it or move it past the end of porject. It's very easy to create them so I just delete them.

Wow, heh heh, thats quite a custom action Coachz, I've got similar actions but I don't think I have anything quite that big.

The only caveat is action markers aren't sample accurate, meaning it could start a tiny bit late and/or not always in the exact same spot if running multiple takes. What I do is just slide the marker to the end of the project or similar if I plan on using it multiple times.

Hey my friend, yeah, referring to "not sample accurate" I may have run into that a couple of times, not sure. I don't remember having a big problem with it though, to where it interfered with what I was doing.

I actually use action commands quite a bit, they can come in real handy sometimes. With all the sampling I do, I end up with a lot of unconventional projects and I don't know what I'd do without Reaper.

Right, it's not a problem for me either but every time I mention action markers someone tells me that so I figured I'd mention LOL.
