Chapter 8. Basic Audio Editing > Setting the Snap Point

Setting the Snap Point

By default, the snap point for a part or event is the starting point of the part or event. More often than not, this is the most sensible way for Snap to work. In fact, the only way to change the snap point for an audio part is to resize the part itself. The snap point for an audio event, however, does not have to be its starting point.

The snap point for an event determines where Cubase moves the event when Snap is on. Although by default, the snap point is at the beginning of the event, it can be set to any point. Often a different setting is useful for snapping events that do not begin at a musically significant point. An event may have an obvious place where it is rhythmically anchored, and this may be the best place to use as the snap point. In the next task, an event with the downbeat close to its end will be snapped to the beginning of the measure. You will set the snap point with the cursor.
