    A LITTLE THEORY

    Every time we record, we create two things. We're creating an audio file , which livesin the Audio Files folder , and we are creating a region or clip inside the DAW .It's a reference to it, and region has certain parameters unique from the audio file,and I can take a large portion of the audio file or a small portion of the audio file.

    The region is something that's in our DAW, and the audio file is the data that liveson our hard drive in a separate location. The reason this is important, is becausemuch of the editing you do is to the regions themselves and not to the audio files,and we call this non-destructive editing.

    TRIM

    Trimming or edge editing in the DAW, It is trimming edges of aregion or clip, at the beginning or end.

    You just have to position the pointer on thelower edge of the clip to activate the trimmingfunction.

    SEPARATE

    Full clip

    This is the clip section to create a new region. This is done to move andrelocate to its new position. This is done through a command button,scissors or razor tool

    In audition is accessed by the R key, then selectthe clip to separate, or pressing Ctrl + K

    MERGE

    There comes a time in the mix we have many small regions with crossfades. The bestwe can do is create a new audio track. But before we do that, we have to take intoaccount that also create a new audio file on your hard drive.

    We must be careful before creating this new file called merge or consolidation,

    because if this method is a destructive editing

    GRID

    Another important task is to move the regions from left to right. We may findsometimes that can jump to move in steps and sometimes moving smoothly. This isbecause every DAW has a grid feature.Very often we find that we want to move regions to the right place to fit with therest of the song. There are many ways in which we can achieve this. Each DAW may

    be different when using the grid.

    GRID

    On Audition is done by activating switch setting and then moves the region withthe mouse, and to be more precise we press Ctrl + Shift + left click and then dragthe region

    CYCLE

    When we're recording or editing in the DAW, will times we need torepeat a section of the song, many times to correct details. This iscalled cycling

    CYCLE

    We chose the time selection tool,below we are positioned in the areato repeat, we select it with themouse and then we go to thereproduction bar and we activate thecyclic repetition.

    MARKERS

    A marker is defining a specific location within your song.

    markers are great for locating for easy location of the Intro, verses, a chorus, a bridgeor an outro. It's important to put markers in and be able to name them.

    Here it would be difficult to find a specific part of the song

    ZOOM

    The zooming, it's really necessary very often to zoom way in, make a small edit, and

    then zoom way back out. Sometimes there's a specific zoom tool, like a magnifyingglass, or through keyboard shortcuts.

    There's nothing worse than zooming way in, and then trying to scroll back and forth tofind the thing you're trying to edit, So select first and then zoom.

    CONCLUSIONS AND THANKS

    The theme already knew, but nevertheless was quite long because I had to do itin pdf.I could have made an explanatory video, but I had problems with my computer,

    and I decided to do it this way.

    I worked hard on this and I would love to know if I got everything right. Is thereanything I missed or could have explained better? What do you think of theaudio recording? Thank you for watching and critiquing

    Thanks for reading

    Sincerely Daniel Barboza
