That's exactly what I've done, and the punch in/out works fine. 
Tne problem is that when the track is rec-enabled, monitoing switches
to the input signal (or just off), and I can't hear the parts of the
recorded track before and after the punch-in region. A bit difficult to
sync my playing with the recorded track this way... :-)
