To clarify;  I work alone most of the time.  When I'm recording vocals, I'm using loop record to stack the takes and then comp them later.  I often am punching in a line within a verse or sometimes even a word in a line.  Because loop recording will not allow me to hear my vocals leading up to the auto punch in-point (it loops directly to the auto punch locator), I can't use auto punch and loop recording together.  I don't know of a work around and I'm guessing there needs to be a separate locator  for the in-point of the loop and another locator for the in-point for auto punch.  Hope this makes sense.  Any help is appreciated.

Wow. No answer to this since may? I have the same problem. I need it to loop back to the start of the pre -roll each loop. Instead it wants to loop back to the auto punch in location.

Basically it seems as if you’d want to loop an auto punch-in, yet would need to ability to define the amount of pre-roll and punch-out you’d need in order to properly prepare yourself for the punch-in.

This would be a feature I’d like to see, especially since the current pre-roll feature is a bar in length. If this is actually adjustable, please someone direct to the pre-roll length edit feature.

This is not an answer because I have the same problem. I am coming to Studio One from Sonar. In Sonar, you can set loop points separately from punch in points. Therefore you can set a loop which is wider than you punch in region and therefore hear what occurred before your punch will start. This is very helpful if you want to punch in a few words of a verse line ... you have the context of what went before. I guess Studio One does not support this, but it is a major bit of pain having to use punch alone to hear the preceding sounds.

I'm also  Cakewalk Sonar refugee, and really miss the abilty to set an outer loop, and an inner punch-in/punch-out "loop".

Even Harrison's Mix bus allows you to set the two independant of one another...

Maybe V4 has added that feature?

Can a Studio One user please chime in?

How does one set  punch-in, and punch-out points, and also set a loop around them for looping back to hear pre-roll???
