Hi,
I'm using Logic X with an Apollo Twin and have software monitoring off since I have real time monitoring through my Apollo. I want to be able to record an acoustic guitar track while monitoring the previous take on the same track. is this possible?
Thanks!

You cannot monitor a track while you record on the same track.
During recording, the data of the track get overwritten.
Record on another track!

Thanks Peter. It seems like logic had this feature some time ago, or maybe i am thinking of sonar or reason. So I don't quite understand how punch in/punch out is useful if you can't monitor the track you are punching in on?

Punch in: you hear your new sound.
Punch out: you hear the original again.
Not both.

If I understand you right, you want to record all the time and hear the original all the time. For that you need another track.

In case that you wish to hear always the latest recorded track ... mmh ... may get complicated but I haven’t even thought about it yet.
