Chapter 8. Basic Audio Editing > Moving Parts and Events Using Snap

Moving Parts and Events Using Snap

You can move any part or event in Cubase to another place in a project simply by dragging it to a new location. If Snap is turned off, parts and events can be moved anywhere, without relation to a beat or grid. When Snap is turned on, parts and events are moved according to the grid created by the Snap settings. In the following task, you will move an event a quarter note at a time to change its place in a beat, but keep in mind that parts are moved exactly the same way.

To move an event using snap

1.
Turn on Snap by clicking the Snap button on the toolbar.

2.
From the Snap Settings menu, select Use Quantize (Figure 8.12).

Figure 8.12. The Use Quantize setting enables more Snap options.


3.
From the Quantize menu, select 1/4 Note.

The snap settings will look like those in Figure 8.13.

Figure 8.13. With these settings, Snap will constrain movements to quarter notes.


4.
Drag the audio event, which is now constrained to movements of 1/4 note (Figure 8.14).

Figure 8.14. The beginning of this event moves along a quarter note grid.
