BR-532: Copying a Track

Tags: track,edit,copy,br-532
Track Copy allows you to copy a specific part of data and then place it in a different location. You can perform editing operations such as copying the data on a track all at once, or copying the data from a specified part as many times as you wish.
If, for example, you want to use a phrase from a certain track, or have the same phrase repeated again and again, the copy function will help save you time.

NOTE: * If data exists at the position being copied to, that data will be overwritten.

NOTE: * The portion being copied must be longer than 1.0 second long. If the copied portion is 1.0 second or less, no sound will be heard even if the copy is carried out.

The three types of Track Copy are given below:
