- How do you make a new copy of a file in the Edit View? Why
is this something you would want to do?
- What is the Preroll and Postroll Preview, and where are the
options for changing them?
- What are markers?
- To make a copy of a file, it must be loaded into the Edit View
display window and then copied by choosing Edit > Copy to
New. Creating copies of your original files is useful when you
want to preserve the original sound file or create multiple versions
from the same source.
- When you apply an effect to a selection, you often need to
hear the original sound before and after the selection takes
place. The Preroll and Postroll Preview provides additional preview
of the waveform before and after your current selection. It can
be enabled when you add an effect or, alternatively, when
you press the Play from Cursor to End of File or Play from Cursor
to End of View buttons in the Edit View. To change the Preroll
and/or Postroll options of the Play buttons, right-click the
button and choose the desired command from the menu.
- Markers represent a specific point, or a range with a specific
starting and ending point, within a waveform. Efficient use of
markers can considerably speed up the editing and navigation
