In a DAW

I haven't recorded anything in a while, but I was just wondering about this. Seems like it would be pretty simple thing, aside from putting a wireless mouse on the floor and tapping it with your toe.

You can simply program the punch points, no need to do it manually or "pedially". I know SONAR does this, and I'm sure Cubase and Pro Tools do it too.

With Audacity, last I looked at it, I don't think you can punch in on a track, but you can make a new track and blend 'em together later on. I find that very clunky because if you use plugins you have to bring them in all over again, set 'em up the same, etc.

Having a pedal to punch in for home recording is a must have IMHO. I use one with my old Tascam 788.

This is a lot quicker than programming punch in and out points.

"This is a lot quicker than programming punch in and out points."

A simple mouse drag on the time bar, right-click "set punch points" and you're done with zero chance of punching in too early or late, or worse, punching out too late, etc.

Now with a hardware tape machine or digital machine, sure, they are a godsend if you're engineering yourself. But in a decent DAW like SONAR, it couldn't be easier.

If you work better with a foot pedal, and your DAW supports one-keystroke punchin, just use any USB-compatible footswitch that lets you make a macro.

There's a ton out there - gaming, recording, transcription, whatever.

I too have a 788. To be honest, when I first got it I thought I'd never use the "auto" features and just used the punch in pedal.

However, as time goes on, I find myself using the auto punch/repeat feature maybe more than the pedal. It just seems easier and more accurate.

I use auto punch time selection like Tyrone. Super easy.

My Personus Faderport has a footpedal connection - so I can use my midi piano pedal to punch in and out.. but I just use the time selection punch function...

Me too - autopunch in Reaper. Select the area of the track lane in question and set the recording mode to autopunch, click on a start point before the punch-in area, then click "record". It's a beautiful thing.
