Odd side effects of the minimum track length rule.
- Record a track in 2x2
- Record another track in 2x2
- Press “Play” before the end of the track
Issue 1: The track keeps on recording until the end of the loop (extension). In many cases the user doesn’t want to record anything else at that point. Have to be quiet until the end of the loop … and have to wait until the end of a long loop to do anything else.
Issue 2: The button says Overdub (and after that Play), but an overdub is not possible.
Should probably say something like “Waiting to Play” which is grayed out.
Even better it says “Finish Recording Now” (or similar) that completes the recording with the reset of the track empty (and you can overdub to you hearts content). This has other benefits…
