All audio and MIDI clips in Cakewalk have a Original Time property, which stores the original SMPTE time stamp associated with a clip. The Original Time clip property is based on absolute time, not tempo. This allows you to freely re-arrange clips and later revert them back to their original time.Cakewalk automatically assigns the Original Time property during import or immediately after record. When an audio clip containing a SMPTE time stamp is imported into Cakewalk (such as a Broadcast Wave file), the Original Time field is populated with this time stamp. When opening previous Cakewalk projects, existing clips will be populated with their current time.
Note: The Original Time property can not be edited. If a clip is bounced to a new clip, the Original Time stamp will not propagate to the new clip.Figure 122. The Clip Properties Inspector.A.
