This seems basic, but I have looked through the manual and on the web, but can’t get a definitive answer.
I have two tracks, and I need to keep them synced. I recently learned I can use “sync lock”, and that works as far as keeping both tracks lined up when I delete sections of audio. My recordings are generally of people talking, one person in each track, and most of what I do is just delete out when people stutter or say “umm…”
What I want to do sometimes is splice the audio so that I can create space to make way for the sound in a third track, which is audio of the thing the two people are talking about. In other words, the two people are talking about a performance, and then I want to cut away from that conversation and include a clip of that performance, and then come back to the people talking.
I know I can use [CTRL]+i to split the audio of a track and then move it around with the move tool. However, even when two tracks are sync locked,as far as I’ve been able to do, the slice tool only works on one track.
In order to achieve what I’m trying to do, I need to remove the sync lock, split track 1, and then carefully try and split track 2 in the same place, then re-apply the sync lock, and then I can move the audio on either side of the slice point. But, this seems like a lot of steps, and I just can’t believe there isn’t a way to slice two tracks at once in the same splace at the same time. Although the cursor snapping helps, the way I’m doing it now also carries the risk that I might not slice in the same point, and the two tracks will go out of sync.
How can I slice two sync lock tracks in the same place in one go so that I don’t have to turn sync lock on and off, and, more importantly, I can be sure the slice is in the exact same spot on both tracks?
Thank you for any help.
