    Actually i just figured out what it was. I don't know how to press record of the overdub guitar track and press play on the other track so they will both start at the same time. Anyone know how to do this?
    yep

      wut

      so you want one track to have overdub enabled simultaneously while you also press play on another track? - and do you mean track or clip?

        Yes yes. Like i want to be able to hear the track as soon as i hit the record button so there is no space since i haven't figured out how to edit waves yet.
        And it's a track not clip
        yep

          I don't entirely comprehend what you want to do. You can set a count-in on the metronome when you press record. Would that help, or am I completely off the mark?

            Ok, so when you do that the recording starts, but the rhythm isn't playing. So it's almost impossible to follow chord changes

              The rhythm? A rhythm track?

                Okay think like a guitar playing chords right? So lets say you have your guitar playing chords in the background in a verse. If you wanted to overdub with a lead you would have to press both buttons in like 1 millisec. Just curious if there is a record/play all button or something.
                yep

                  Sorry, I don't quite understand what you mean. I'd record the chords on one track, create another track for the solo, then record onto that track. The first track should be playing as you record the second track.

                    How would you be able to know when the chord changes were happening. Lets say you recorded the first track with a 1 sec pause in the beginning. How would you know exactly how to line it up perfect?

                        I'd remove the pause so the recording starts on the first beat, and drag it back afterwards if it was a part of the song. Alternatively make the first chord start on the first downbeat of the metronome after the pause.

                          Ohhh. Okay. The other thing is i'm trying to do a loop. It's a lot easier then playing the same chords for 10 minutes straight. How do you guys match the loop up perfect so there is no cut?
                          yep

                            It helps if you play the chord progression twice in one take, then split it and only loop the second part. With decent timing, this usually sounds the most seamless.
