Assuming you want to do intro, verse 1, verse 2; first set the snap to "snap to measure"
Right click on the track header and select Recording mode>Overdub.
Now record the first section - let's say intro - 4 measures.
Trim the intro to where you want the next section to begin then highlight the verse 1 section - let's say 8 bars. Click the punch in/out button.
Rewind to start and hit record. Mixcraft will play the intro and then continue to record whatever you lay down in the next 8 bars.
Continue throughout the song. You don't need to go to the start every time. Just place the play head anywhere before the punch in and it will play from there and start recording at the punch in.
The point of setting "snap to measure" is that so the new highlighted section will not overlap the pre-recorded section - resulting in lanes.
Thanks Trevor for helping me with this.
I have tried what you say. I have clicked snap to measure at the top of the screen, however, when the timeline gets to the highlighted area it still splits into two lanes. Am I missing something?
