Chapter 8. Basic Audio Editing > Constraining Vertical Movement

Constraining Vertical Movement

Moving an event or a part to a different track is a common operation in Cubase, but in many situations you need the part to play back at the same time in the project as before it was moved. You can constrain the movement of an event or part to a vertical axis when you relocate it. In the following task, you will move an audio event to a new track but won't change its meter position.

To move an event or part while retaining its playback position

1.
Press and hold the Ctrl key (Windows) or the Command key (Mac OS).

2.
Click the event or part you want to move (Figure 8.17).

Figure 8.17. This event is selected. It has a red outline around it (not visible in the illustration).


3.
While still holding the Ctrl or Command key, drag the event or part down or up in the Project window (Figure 8.18).

Figure 8.18. When the event is moved to a different track (it's in transit here), it keeps its position in the project.


4.
When you reach the track to which you want to move the event or part, release the mouse.

The event or part will move to the new track at the same playback position in the project as before it was moved (Figure 8.19).

Figure 8.19. When released, the event is on a different track, but at the same point in time.
