You could copy the scene to song...record the audio in song mode...trim the audio...go back to scene, drop it in.
I suppose that's not REALLY a work around, though.
What's your plan for recording audio in scene mode? (just curious)
Copy n paste my reply from the other thread...
Is the current pre roll broken in 3.0.3 or something ?
Long press the 'Q' up by the tempo, a drop down will appear, turn pre roll on, selects its length.
See if that does what you need
Thanks for the input.
It's not a problem with the pre-roll itself, but the fact that you don't get a pre-roll when you're recording A SAMPLE (as opposed to when you're recording directly into an audio track). Recording an audio pattern for use in a scene outside of the linear sequencer requires using the sample record function (at least I haven't found any other way to do it). What I'd like is the option for a pre-roll when recording a sample, which would then permit you record audio patterns in time with a scene without having to mess with the linear sequencer. (Ableton has spoiled me, and I hate being tied to a linear sequencer until it's time to arrange).
Just record as an audio track and that will be in the track helper to drag to the scene cell wont it ?
I am away from the iPad and cant check till i get back.
