Chapter 5.  Working with Tracks  >  Project Window Areas

Project Window Areas

When you work with tracks in the Project window, most of your time is spent between the Inspector, the Track List, and the Event Display areas. The Inspector area displays information about a selected track and may be divided into several sections, depending on the track class or track type you have selected (explained later in this chapter). The Track List area displays all the tracks that are part of your project, stacked one on top of the other. Again, the content of the Track List area for a given track varies depending on its track class. Finally, the Event Display area displays recorded events—the actual audio and MIDI content of the project itself—and its associated automation.

The Inspector

As mentioned previously, you will want to use the Inspector area whenever you want to view or edit certain details pertaining to a selected track in your Project window. What you find in the Inspector area also varies depending on the track’s class. For example, when a MIDI track is selected, the Inspector area is divided into six sections: the MIDI Track Setup, Parameters, Inserts, Sends, Channel, and Notepad. Each one of these sections allows you to modify a certain amount of information that affects how the events on the track behave or play back. So, in the same example of a MIDI Inspector’s area, you can use the (Track) Parameters section to transpose all the events on the track. Other track classes, such as Folder Tracks (this is also explained later in Chapter 6), do not display as many sections in the Inspector area.
