Recording

Hi everybody, up till now I've been making music with caustic by punching the notes in and not using the keyboard with each machine. But this is a time consuming practice! So I decided to try and record using the keyboard, but why is it, that when I start recording, it only allows me to record a short section and then it starts to play back what I've recorded, while I'm still recording? Then when I go to the sequencer the lower left button is red? I have searched the manual and have found no answers.
This is quite frustrating.

Because you're in pattern

Because you're in pattern mode and your pattern is only 1 measure, make the pattern longer before you start. Or... Record in song mode and it will appear in the sequencer piano roll

If you record in song mode,

If you record in song mode, don't forget to reduce the quantization from a bar to something more sensible.

Ok Rob Farley, I've tried

Ok Rob Farley, I've tried that, and it's still doing the same. Play for more than a bar and it starts playing back wot I've recorded while I'm recording, also it gets stuck in one note?(just plays that note?)
Edgey, how do u reduce the quantizization?
Tks Zombo66 I don't think I'll need that?

There isn't a vdo on iTunes explaining how to use a machine s keyboard to record?
Are we only able to punch notes in and not actually able to record while using a machines keyboard?
IE r they just for show?

For recording in song mode

For recording in song mode you should first go to the piano roll of the sequencer and "zoom" to the desired quantization, e.g. 1/16.

Then go to the synth instrument and press REC & PLAY.

(Use metronome and count-in for preparing your live performance. Or set the sequencer cursor some bars before.)

I'll try that, I'm having no

I'll try that, I'm having no joy with this. It just seems to do its own thing. I'm missing something surely.
