Lesson 3. Understanding Workflow Techniques > Using the Skip Cycle Mode

Using the Skip Cycle Mode

The Skip Cycle mode is like the Cycle mode inverted: Instead of cycling continuously through the cycle Region, the Skip Cycle mode jumps right over the Region specified in the Locator display. In fact, to set up the Skip Cycle mode, you enter the left and right locator positions in reverse! In Cycle mode, the left locator is always earlier in the song than the right locator. In Skip Cycle mode, the left locator is always later in the song than the right one.

Think of it this way: In both Cycle and Skip Cycle modes, the SPL jumps from the right locator to the left one. In Cycle mode the right locator comes after the left, so the SPL jumps from the right locator back to the left locator earlier in the song. In Skip Cycle mode, the right locator comes before the left, so the SPL jumps from the right locator forward to the left locator later in the song. By jumping forward in the song, you skip a section of the song's content. Clear as mud? Let's do a little practice to drive this concept home.
