Table of Contents Previous Next Index


The Project > Insert Time/Measures command lets you insert any number of blank measures, ticks, seconds, or frames into a project. You can insert the blank measures (or other period of time) into all tracks or into one or more selected tracks. If you insert the blank time into the entire project, all events in each track—markers, meter and key settings, and tempo changes—are shifted automatically by default. If you insert the blank time into one or more selected tracks, only the events in those tracks are shifted by default. You can always choose which types of events should be shifted.

If there is any audio or MIDI data in the area you want to delete, you can use the Edit > Delete command to delete the area that you select. Portions of MIDI clips may have no data in them: they have boundaries but no dark lines inside—if that’s the case, use the following method.

If there is no data in the area you want to delete, you can simply drag any clips that come after the empty area to their proper destinations. You can also use this method if there is data in the area you want to delete—you just have to choose whether you want to replace the data in the deleted area, blend it with the data you’re moving, or slide it over to make room.
To delete time when there is audio or MIDI data in the area you want to delete:
