cutting same part of file in several files [SOLVED]

Post by Tamutka » Fri Apr 23, 2021 6:28 am

Hi, I have a lot of short files with the same introduction which starts to be annoying. Is there a way to erase that part on several files at once? Thank you!

  1. Select the part that you want to erase in one track,
  2. then "Select menu > Tracks > In all tracks".
I'm not sure what you mean by "erase".
  • "Ctrl + L" will silence the audio.
  • "Del" (or "Ctrl + K") will delete the audio.
  • "Alt + Ctrl + K" (or "Edit menu > Remove special > Split delete") will delete the audio but leave a space where it was deleted from.
