Chapter 8. Basic Audio Editing > Copying Audio Parts or Events

Copying Audio Parts or Events

Events and parts are copied in the Project window using the common system-level key commands for click-and-drag copying. Hold down the Alt key (Windows) or the Option key (Mac OS), click the object to be copied, and move the copy to its new location. Cubase does include, however, a few of its own shortcuts and additions that make copying events and parts easier in some situations.

Shortcuts and tricks for copying events and parts

  • If you want to copy an event or part to a new track but keep its position in the project, press Shift+Alt+Ctrl (Windows) or Shift+Option+Command (Mac OS) to create a time-constrained copy (Figure 8.24).

    Figure 8.24. An event copied to a new track but constrained vertically.

  • Select an event or part and choose Edit > Duplicate to copy the selected part or event and place the new copy exactly after the original. This is another of the rare operations that ignores Snap. The two events in Figure 8.25 were created using the Duplicate command with Snap on and set to Beat. The new event did not snap to the nearest beat.

    Figure 8.25. Snap was on and set to 1/4 Note, but Duplicate puts the copy directly after the original.
