Chapter 7. Editing Basics > Arranging with the Track View

Arranging with the Track View

The first part of the editing process deals with arranging the material in your project. Of course, you can do any kind of editing at any time you like. You don’t have to follow exactly what I say, but it’s logical to start with arranging. Basically, this step involves rearranging the tracks and clips in your project so they provide a better representation of the song you’re trying to create. For example, after listening to the project a few times, you might find that the guitar part in the second verse sounds better in the first verse, or you might want the vocal to come in a little earlier during the chorus. You can accomplish these (and many other) feats by manipulating your tracksand clips.

Dealing with Tracks

You already learned how to work with the Track view in terms of setting up track properties, navigating within SONAR, and recording new tracks. However, I haven’t talked about actually manipulating the tracks themselves and the data they contain. Manipulating includes selecting, sorting, inserting, and otherwise changing your original data.
