This little thingy in the L9 transport bar has me curious...

Does anyone know what the button to the right of the record button is for? (And what the dropdown on the rec button, for that matter.)

It couldn't be a ... detach button, could it (as in dual monitor support)? Am I overlooking the obvious?

they would have announced that. and it would seem more logical to place the button on the side of the screen some place not not on the transport bar.

That toggles automation recording in session view.

See this video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=p ... QDuH8_k0#!

Interesting that in the video, that very button appears with different icons.

Yeah.
But what about the "NEW" button?

"prepare new scene for recording"

stops clips in armed tracks and prepares a new scene for recording clips into it

i'm curious as to how the new system actually works re: session vs arrange, absolute to relative etc. cos i can't see a Back To Arrange button anymore.
mr. forge?

the BTA button is still there but currently only visible in the arranger... maybe this will change again before it's released, I have no idea - I know I'd prefer to see it all the time...

there's now a 're-enable automation' button as well in case you manually over-ride the session automation.

clip envelopes, or 'modulation' is still there, but it's hidden by default to avoid confusion.

:!:
so by default it's set to absolute in both session and arrange now, BUT there are both absolute and relative modes available to use within session and arrange, per clip?
