Chapter 9. Advanced Audio Editing > Creating Regions with the Sample Editor

Creating Regions with the Sample Editor

One of the primary uses of the Sample editor is in creating, editing, and otherwise working with regions. A region is simply a section of an audio clip. Regions were discussed in Chapter 4 as they related to cycle recording of audio. One way to cycle record is to record a single clip but have each pass of the loop create a new region. Regions can be converted to events and also exported as discrete audio files if you wish.

To create a region

1.
On the toolbar in the Sample editor, click the Show Regions button (Figure 9.52).

Figure 9.52. Click the Show Regions button to display a list of regions on the right.


2.
Use the Range Selection tool to select part of the clip in the waveform display (Figure 9.53).

Figure 9.53. This selection of the waveform display will be converted to a region.


3.
In the Regions display at the right side of the Sample Editor window, click the Add button.

This converts your selection to a new region (Figure 9.54). The region is shown both in the waveform display and in the regions list.

Figure 9.54. Click the Add Region button to create a new region from the selection.
