Summary0009637: MIDI loop recording loses newly recorded notes
DescriptionSetting up e.g. Black Pearl MIDI Track to create the drums while looping.
Record the bass first, then the snare, then the next MIDI notes.

The record mode is sound on sound.

The new notes create the sound and the notes are displayed in the MIDI region, but the new run of the loop skips the new notes.
Steps To ReproduceSupposed workflow:

- create a range of a few bars
- arm+record
- record mode: sound on sound
- loop range

Main Task:
- first loop record bass
- second loop record snare

1. notes sound
2. notes appear on the MIDI grid
3. notes are recorded, kept and played in the next iteration of the loop
Additional InformationUsing "Play Range" while recording keeps the notes.

I somewhere read about a feature, where all layers are active (and therefore produce sound) but couldn't find it.

IMHO as a quick fix, the "Loop Range" could be implemented as an endless "Play Range".

At this time, Ardour does not provide the sort of MIDI looping I think you are looking for. Each loop while loop recording creates a new region, it does not add data to an existing region.
