This weekend I recorded a 16 minute long Instrument (MIDI) track over an existing guide track, which was composed of quite a few copied and pasted sections (just a guide for a real drummer to replace).  This is a drum track using Addictive Drums 2 and the controller is a Yamaha DTX700.  Normally, when the recording is finished, the original MIDI data is moved to a new inactive layer.  In this case, both tracks were contained in the main track and active.  They both played back as if merged.  At first I thought I had screwed up the recording settings, but no, Replace and Takes To Layers were correct (I rarely change these).  So after the initial panic, I created a new layer, and dragged.  Not sure what I was dragging, but it ended up being the new take.  They separated correctly, so then I simply promoted the new take up and the old data went to an inactive layer.  I've done this dozens of times before, and it always created the new layer correctly, but this was different, and I can't explain 2 overlaid layers in the main take lane.
