Cut Audio Clips

Level: Apprentice

Using a Scissor Tool

  1. Click on the scissor tool to highlight.

2. Place the cursor on the part of the sound clip or loop you want to cut and click. The scissor will snap to the arrangement grid unless you hold down the alt-key.

3. Click on the pointer to turn off the scissor tool. Grab the second half of the loop and drag it one 4th note.

In this example, we cut up parts of the clip into 8th notes and moved them 8th notes apart.
