Lesson 7. Advanced Audio Editing > Fixing Problems Using the Sample Editor

Fixing Problems Using the Sample Editor

The Sample Editor is used to perform extremely precise edits on audio files as well as to access some unique file-based processing features (such as the Time and Pitch Machine used in Lesson 4, “Tempo and Pitch Matching”). Up to now, the exercises have exclusively utilized the Arrange window for editing. Although the Arrange window allows the sample-accurate viewing of waveforms, it doesn't let you edit down to the sample level. The Sample Editor is unique in that it permits you to zoom in and work with audio at the sample level, enabling you to fix tiny imperfections.

If you played the entire song anytime during this lesson, you probably noticed the sharp click in the guitar solo. In an otherwise acceptable take, an audible click is evident slightly after measure 61. By using the Sample Editor, you can successfully remove the offending spike (most likely caused by a digital clock error during the recording session) by “drawing” it out.
