ardour has crossfaded between the old and new regions. this is quite useful
behaviour when editing, but not the desired behaviour when overdubbing
(recording over existing material). you still want a crossfade to prevent
an abrupt transition between the old and the new, but it should be short
(notably less than 1 second in this case). short crossfades will do that
for you.

note that ardour3 and mixbus both do this by default.

Hi all

I've just recorded two tracks on Ardour and I have recorded again two p=
arts of a (normal) track. I've not created a new track, I recorded it o=
ver the first recording.
I don't know what's the best way to do this...

Anyway, it worked fine except for few seconds at the beginning, where I can=
hear both recordings together. The area is highlighted in yellow and has t=
wo lines crossing.
How can I remove the old recording and keep only the last one?
And why it happened?in preferences, switch to sho=
