Looping Record for ADR/voiceover synchronized to picture
Recording ADR/foley/voiceover is easiest if you can record using a LOOPING RECORD to record multiple takes in a repeating rhythm so the artist can anticipate the speech cadence. WORKFLOW: editor would click IN and OUT points to define the area to punch into (record), click the "Looping Record" icon in the interface, and then record multiple takes until they get it right. In Preferences the "Postroll" would be some adjustable duration (example: two seconds) that extends the duration of each loop with a non-recorded pause between takes. There would also be a "Countdown/Preroll" setting with two choices - either one-second or two-second versions of a four count (three 1kHz beeps and the last beat is silent) -- this would extend the recorded clip's duration. EXAMPLE: editor uses IN and OUT points on the timeline to designate a 2.5 second region+track on the timeline to record and clicks the 'Looping Record' icon. Earlier in Preferences, the "Postroll" duration was set to 1 second and the one-second "Preroll" beeps were selected. When the record icon is clicked, recording starts with the one-second length preroll plus the duration of the IN/OUT for a total duration of 3.5 seconds. After recording Audition pauses for the 'postroll' duration and then records another instance until either the stop icon or space is pressed. The multiple instances of the record stay on the track and the clip would not expose the preroll portion unless the clip duration was extended. The editor would delete as many takes as they want or drag them to the Files panel.
