Editing Issue

Question

Editing a track with lots of pops (extreme clipping). I can slice the pops out, move tracks together, bounce, BUT an artifact is created that is as bad as the pop. No matter how far back I edit it won't go away.

So artifact zoom in looks like no matter how exact I slide the tracks together, after bounce there is a significant space at the join with a -3db peak and very loud.

Tried all the tricks I know. Any thoughts?

Yes, from https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=EditingAudio.05.html

The center line of a waveform is the zero line; it corresponds to the rest position (displacement of 0) of the original vibrating object. (A waveform for perfect silence would be a horizontal line at zero.) Back and forth motions of the vibrating object translate to upward (positive) and downward (negative) excursions of waveform amplitude. For example, a close-up of a portion of the guitar waveform might look like this:

The waveform crosses the zero line twice during each complete vibration. These zero-crossings are important in digital audio processing; they are good places to cut waveforms apart and splice them together. If waveforms are cut or spliced at other locations, clicks and pops can occur. The maximum amplitude of the waveform in each vibration is also important: it determines the strength of the vibration, and thus the loudness of the sound.
