Fixed Length recording for Audio clips with Push 2

Hey guys, I'm learning the new Push 2 workflow and I seem to be missing something. 

With MIDI clip recording, I can activate "fixed length" and set to 4 bars, and everything is easy. I record 4 bars and it automatically ends the clip & resumes playback at the next drop beat. That's what I expected to see.

However, when recording AUDIO clips, it seems to ignore my fixed length preference. The button is still pulsing (indicating it is actually still on) and MIDI clips still act as they should in fixed length mode. Audio clips continue to record until I push a button to stop it manually. This seems very atypical, correct?

I'm running Push 2, updated firmware, Live 9.5 Suite, El Capitan on a brand new MB Pro quad core, max ram, SSD, with all permissions repaired and terminal "sudo" command ran today. All should be BLAZING along without a hitch.

Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance.

    I found the answer. The workflow is quite specific - and you need to know the following:

    Simply activating the "fixed length" record mode does NOT automatically apply to the recording of AUDIO clips in session view, as it does for the MIDI tracks/clips.

    In order to take advantage of that function you must approach it differently - i.e. you cannot just click a pink box on an armed channel and expect it to stop at your mark and re-loop automatically.

    1. Hold the record button and click the button at the bottom of the LCD that corresponds to your audio track. This arms the track to record.

    2. While holding down SELECT, tap the light red (pink) cell that corresponds to your blank clip, where you intend to record audio.

    3. NOW hit the record button (bottom left) to activate the recoding. This will behave in the way you wish. The audio clip will auto-stop, and automatically playback as a loop, in sync.

    A lot of the questions I've wrestled with this past few weeks were answered HERE today:https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLoh4MB-kbBmKXRhohbHS7Qjv3vazRl4X_

    So I encourage you to start there, and branch out with your search.

    It doesn't apply the same way to MIDI Clips either as far as I can tell... I cannot get it to reliably create fixed length clips in Session view at all!  I do not understand this. very confusing.  I've sent support a request for clarification.

    I learned this thing also the hard way. I still don't understand what would be the benefit behind this approach instead of making it behaving the same way as for recording midi clips.

    I also have a "fixed length" related issue. Got the device yesterday and I'm pretty sure I'm just missing something. When trying to set fixed length the screen displays the following: "fixed length undefined". At the bottom of the screen the usual set lengths are not displayed and I am therefore unable to set recording length. Anyone know a way around this?
