Chapter 9. Advanced Audio Editing > Navigating with the Locators

Navigating with the Locators

Cubase includes a huge range of options for navigation within projects. Anyone doing detailed audio editing should learn some of the key combinations and shortcuts for moving around in events, parts, and selections. These will save you a great deal of time in zooming in and out to find places to edit. For example, you could accomplish the sample extraction described in the previous section with much less zooming by moving the locators and using them as guides for viewing the selection, as you'll learn here.

To use the locators to view a selection

1.
In the Project window, zoom in and set the selection starting point as in Figure 9.11.

Now you need to set the end point, using the same tools you used to set the start of the selection. Zoom in and use the Range tool to set the end of the selection at the precise point where the sample should end.

2.
Right-click (or click) and select Transport > Locators to Selection (Figure 9.12).

Figure 9.12. This menu choice sets the locators as bookends around the current selection.


This sets the left locator to the start of the current selected range and the right locator to the end of the selected range. Or you could simply press the P key on your keyboard to set both the right and left locators.
