Range editing allows you to select and delete contiguous selections of times, on multiple tracks, without worrying about the individual regions in the track. Once a range is selected, the most common operations are:
- Delete everything inside the Range by clicking Delete or Backspace
- Cut or Copy the Range to the paste buffer
- Use the Edit menu to operate on the range
- Right-click on the Range to perform one of many tasks
- Play Range : Locates the transport to the start of the range, plays through it, and stops at the end.
- Loop Range: Sets loop makers in the ruler bar and loops the range.
- Zoom to Range: Re-sizes the canvas to accommodate the range.
- Spectral Analysis: Performs spectral analysis on the regions within the range.
- Optimize Polarity click here for more
- Move Range Start to Previous Region Boundary, etc: these functions help to fit the range to the boundaries of nearby regions ( you can also use the Grid for this task )
- Separate : Splits the Region(s) inside the range, on each of the start/end boundaries of the Range.
- Convert to Region in Region List : Combines all the selected regions in the range, and creates a single audio file that will appear in the Region List of the edit window.
- Select All in Range : Selects all the regions that are touched by the Range selection. ( Note: there’s also “Edit->Select->Select all within Edit Range” which only selects the regions completely inside the range)
- Set Loop from Selection : Sets the Loop Start/End markers to match the Range selection
- Set Punch From Selection : Sets the Punch In/Out markers to match the Range selection
- Set Session Start/End from Selection : Sets the Session Start/End markers to match the Range selection
- Add Range Markers : Creates a new “Range Marker”, which is a persistent pair of start/end markers that can be used to re-select later, name CD track indexes, or stored as an export range (for example, a song in a multi-song project, or an excerpt of a song).
- Crop Region to Range : Trims the region start and end points to fit within the Range
- Fill Range with Region : Using the selected Region in the Region list, this fills the range with enough copies of that region to fill the range.
- Consolidate Range : Removes all the region data in the Range, and renders all the regions into a single region (and audio file). This file incorporates all region gain setting, region gain automation, and fade in/out settings for the included regions.
- Bounce Range to Region List : Combines all the selected regions in the range, and creates a single audio file that will appear in the Region List of the edit window.
- Export Range… : Launches the Export Dialog with the selected range defined as the export time
