Figure 505. The Editing section
The Editing section lets you specify drag & drop behavior, auto-crossfade settings, MIDI editing options and Microscope settings.
The Editing section contains the following settings:
list-image
Copy Entire Clips as Linked Clips. When you copy an entire clip, choosing this option causes the new clip and the clip that you copied it from to be Linked clips.
list-image
Blend Old and New. Choosing this option tells SONAR to mix the new data with the old, with the following option:
list-image
Replace Old with New. Choosing this option tells SONAR to delete the old data, with the following option:
list-image
Delete Whole Measures. Choosing this option tells SONAR to delete the old data up to the next measure line, regardless of whether the new data fills the space up to the next measure.
list-image
Slide Over Old to Make Room. Choosing this option tells SONAR to slide the old data either forward or backward in the track to make room for the new data. with the following option:
list-image
Align to Measures. Choosing this option tells SONAR to slide the old data up to the next measure line, regardless of whether the new data fills the space up to the next measure.
list-image
Ask This Every Time. Choosing this option causes the Editing section to appear every time you drag some data.
list-image
Crossfade Audio clips upon overlap. Choosing this option tells SONAR to automatically smooth out any volume differences between overlapping audio clips, nondestructively. If you choose this option to drag clips, and then disable it to drag some other clips, the clips with the crossfades retain their crossfades.
list-image
Crossfade Styles. Click this button to specify the default fade and crossfade settings. The options are as follows:
list-image
Default Fade-In Curve > Linear. This command sets as a default a linear, or steady fade-in curve when dragging the beginning of a clip.
list-image
Default Fade-In Curve > Fast Curve. This command sets as a default a fast fade-in curve when dragging the beginning of a clip.
list-image
Default Fade-In Curve > Slow Curve. This command sets as a default a slow fade-in curve when dragging the beginning of a clip.
list-image
Default Fade-Out Curve > Linear. This command sets as a default a linear, or steady fade-out curve when dragging the end of a clip.
list-image
Default Fade-Out Curve > Fast Curve. This command sets as a default a fast fade-out curve when dragging the end of a clip.
list-image
Default Fade-Out Curve > Slow Curve. This command sets as a default a slow fade-out curve when dragging the end of a clip.
list-image
Default Crossfade Curves > Linear Out - Linear In. This command sets as default a crossfade in which the first clip fades out at a steady rate and the second clip fades in at a steady rate.
list-image
Default Crossfade Curves > Fast Out - Fast In. This command sets as default a crossfade in which the first clip fades out fast and the second clip fades in fast.
list-image
Default Crossfade Curves > Slow Out - Slow In. This command sets as default a crossfade in which the first clip fades out slowly and the second clip fades in slowly.

list-image

list-image
Default Crossfade Curves > Slow Out - Linear In. This command sets as default a crossfade in which the first clip fades out slowly and the second clip fades in at a steady rate.
list-image
Selection after single split. This list lets you specify what is selected after a clip is split into two parts:
list-image
Left portion (default). Only the left portion is selected.
list-image
Right portion. Only the right portion is selected.
list-image
Both portions. Both the left and right portions are selected.
list-image
None. Neither portion is selected.
list-image
When splitting clips in groups, create new groups. Choosing this option tells SONAR to create a new clip group when splitting clips in an existing clip group.
list-image
Non-Destructive MIDI Editing. Select this option to make all MIDI editing non-destructive. When toggled on, this option forces deleted data to be retained even though it is not visible.
list-image
Velocity Audition. Select this option if you want to hear the changes in velocity as you make them.
list-image
Polyphonic Velocity Audition. Select this option if you want to hear all selected notes as you drag them through different pitch levels.
list-image
Microscope. Use this check box to enable/disable Microscope mode in the Piano Roll view and inline Piano Roll (enabled by default).
list-image
Diagonal Size. Use this numeric entry box to specify the diameter size in pixels of the microscope. The valid range is 20-250 and the default value is 100.
list-image
Show When Note Height Less Than. Microscope mode will only be enabled if the note heights (in pixels) are equal or less than this number. The valid range is 2-20 and the default value is 6.
list-image
Magnifying Time. Use this check box to enable/disable horizontal magnification when the Piano Roll view zoom is such that notes become very narrow.
Table 267.  
By default, the Microscope mode begins horizontal magnification when a 32nd note is narrower than 8 pixels. This line lets you specify the horizontal zoom threshold (1-20 pixels).
This line specifies the highest horizontal magnification that will result when using Microscope mode.
