Part III: Editing Audio > Working with Regions

Chapter 10. Working with Regions

When you edit audio in Pro Tools, you don’t alter the original audio files saved on disk. Rather, you edit regions (usually displayed as waveforms) that represent the original audio files. Working with regions non-destructively makes it easy to clean up a track’s rough spots, experiment with different arrangements, and generate new musical ideas.

This chapter covers the fundamentals of regions. You’ll learn how to make region selections and select waveforms, and how to create new regions from larger ones. I’ll show you how to position and align regions in tracks, and how to reshape them, too. We’ll conclude with a discussion of some handy editing features, including commands for controlling and securing regions.
