The Rhythm Ferret dialog provides a method to quickly “split” an audio region (or selection of regions) based on events. This can be useful when separating a recorded performance into its component strikes or notes for further editing.
- Mode: Determines whether the Ferret will trigger on percussive onsets for unpitched percussion instruments, or note onsets (for pitched instruments).
- Threshold, Sensitivity: adjust these parameters to refine the detection of events
- Trigger gap: the shortest distance between events that the Ferret will allow. Increase this number if you get multiple triggers on a single note.
- Analyze: displays the results of the analysis on the selected track(s).
Once you are satisfied with the points that the Ferret has chosen to split, you can click “Split on Onsets” to automatically split the selected regions on the marks.
