Repairing Waveforms with the Pencil Tool

Pro Tools lets you make destructive edits to waveform data using the Edit window’s Pencil tool. This is useful for repairing pops, clicks, or other sharp volume spikes in a waveform. The Pencil’s waveform repair feature only functions when the waveform is zoomed-in to the sample level.

To edit an audio waveform with the Pencil tool:

1.
Use the Zoomer or Vertical Zoom buttons to zoom in to the sample level where the waveform appears as a thin line (Figure 11.29).

2.
Using the Pencil tool, drag over the area of the waveform you want to reshape (Figure 11.30).
