TIGHTNESS OF EDITS The next thing I want to discuss is the “tightness” of the edits that you make when cutting and pasting. What I mean by that is, how close to the actual sound itself do you make the edit? In some situations the edit will be made in the CHAPTER 3 27 28 “Zero-Crossing” Edits middle of a word or note or drum hit, but in others (and this is usually an easier option) the edit point will be made in a section of silence (or, at the very least, largely reduced level) prior to the start of, or immediately following, the actual place where the edit should ideally be.
One of the most useful parametric methods is Select Inside Locators, because it quickly and easily allows you to select all regions (including any MIDI regions that are present) between two defined points (the locators). This can be useful for selecting everything in a certain section of a song (a chorus, for example), but it should be noted that it will select all regions that are even in part inside the locators. What this means in practice is that, if you use this method, you might well end up with a number of regions that hang over the edges of the locator points being selected.
So what exactly is a phase-aligned zero-crossing edit? ” In physical terms, if you imagine a speaker cone moving in and out as it plays back a sound, the zero-crossing points on the waveform of that sound would be the points where the speaker is in its “at rest” or “neutral” position. On the actual waveform display this is the point where the line representing the waveform passes through the vertical center of the waveform display (often marked by a faint horizontal line). The reason that we try to cut the audio file at these points is simply to ensure continuity from the end of one audio region to the start of another.
