Change length of multiple clips

Recommended Posts

Me again..

i have a song im working on that has a drumloop that i like

but has a weak kik drum so i have set up another track and set up another kik that works well together 

with the loop kik

so know i have the loop with weak kik (still very audible) in conjunction with this other kik

now it sounds punchy..but i did have to line up the new kik coz the loop kiks werent always on the beat

some a few ticks  ahead/behind....OK painstakingly done all that

Now i discover that theres the remnant of a Hi Hat on the subsidiary kik track which is upsetting 

the groove.

i have also discovered that i can shorten this clip and remove the remnant but 

coz the kiks are not uniform in placement will take me ages to 

modify each one by hand..

 OK so how do i tell cakewalk to make every clip on  my kik track to be a specified length (thus removing the remnant HiHat)

Thanks for reading...

ive had one "confused" reaction...

 simply put..i have 70 identical kik drum clips on a track they are lets say

500milliseconds in length. i want to shorten all of them to 400 ms

how do i do that quickly and easily

if the clips are identical, why not fix one then copy? or groove clip it?

can you use the silence function to set the threshold on the weak kick and have it removed? or eq it out? or selecting the clips, then ctrl key and drag edge to shorten?

thanks for the reply..

they are identical in length (because they are the same sample)

but not identical in position  ie they are not quantized

and they have been positioned in the track by hand
