Chapter 8. Basic Audio Editing > Hearing the Events in a Comp

Hearing the Events in a Comp

When you are creating a comp, you can hear each of the events in the Audio Part editor. The Audio Part editor plays back only one event at a time, and—if you have events stacked vertically—the event at the bottom of the Audio Part editor is the one that will play back. In Figure 8.57, for example, the bottommost part will play back throughout the loop. However, there are multiple ways to hear events that are not on the bottom:

  • Use the Eraser tool to delete the event that's closest to the bottom (Figure 8.59).

    Figure 8.59. The Eraser tool just deleted the bottom event; the event newly on the bottom will now play.

  • Apply the Mute tool to the bottom event to leave it in its current location and hear the event directly above it (Figure 8.60).

    Figure 8.60. Muting an event has the same effect as deleting it, except that a muted event can be unmuted easily.

  • Resize the bottom event so that a section of the event above it will be heard (Figure 8.61).

    Figure 8.61. The resized event will not play until the cursor moves to the point where it is the bottom event in the editor.
