After splitting and deleting how do I trim empty section?

Recommended Posts

I split a track in two and deleted the portion on the left. 

Now I want to either trim the empty section or move the remaining portion to the beginning of the track.

Right click on the clip and choose "Bounce to clips". This renders the split audio and removes the excess contents in slip edit data.

I tried that but I still have the empty section at the beginning of the track.

You have to grab the clip and drag it to the beginning. There's 2 moves here. (actually 3 if you include deleting the left hand clip)

1- Trim the clip by using Bounce to clips

2- Grab the clip and drag it to the beginning of the project.

Nice summary.  I think what has tripped me up is the dragging part. I couldn't get the clip to drag. I found that I had to experiment a lot to get the cursor into drag mode.

The Smart tool is your friend :-)

It selects, highlights and moves clips depending on the placement of the cursor on the clip.

For moving clips, use the Smart tool (its the default tool) and grab the clip in the header region (upper part of the clip) You'll see a 4 sided + shape.

If your not used to editing inside Cakewalk (or any DAW for that matter) it can be confusing. Any more questions, just ask away.
