Oh I see.
That's rather confusing
MBO wrote:There is a certain logic behind it. Without selection how would you know which clip is active for editing? And when the eye option would be always active, how the software should behave in situation when eye is off and selection is on? I don't want to speak for devs but I think that's the idea.
MBO wrote:Not necessarily, in Reaper for example they have similar approach. You cannot turn the eye off after you select a clip.

Robert Randolph wrote:In Reaper it goes by the track currently set to 'insert', not by selection. So the 'insert mode' of the item always matters, selection changes the 'insert mode' of the track.
Robert Randolph wrote:Perhaps I'm misunderstanding what the pencil icon is for in Waveform. The manual says that new notes go to this clip, except it makes no difference at all. Only the current selection changes what things go to.
So I suppose the issue is that the pencil icon is not indicating anything, and the eye icon is overwritten by the selection (irrespective of the pencil icon).
I also don't have a lock icon like the manual shows.

From there, about Stacked recording, with multiple mics ;Robert Randolph wrote:There is one big issue though: selecting clips behind other clips is annoying. There needs to be a way to easily select clips in the background, or a way to make the ‘on-top’ clip play exclusively only for that clip.
You may know this, but one thing you could try would be to select one clip, in the properties panel choose "Select clips" then "Select all clips that overlap the selected ones", then "Create Comp", "replace selected clips", then edit the overlapped clips as a comp clip. I imagine that'd be more fun, in terms of editing, given the scenario you describe.
