Selecting a Portion of an Audio Clip
After loading an audio file, you may want to delete a portion of it or may want to copy a portion of it and paste in a different part if the audio or export it as a new file. To do this you would have to block out the selection you would want to work with.
You could do it by holding down the left button of your mouse at the point you want to start the selection and drag it to the point you want to end the selection.
A more reliable method would be to set the start and finish markers using the commands of the program before working on your selection.
To do this, move the marker to the point you want your start point of the selection to be. Then right click on the timeline. A menu pops up and you choose Set Start Marker. Done with this, move the marker to the point you want to end your selection. Right click on your mouse and choose Set Finish Marker.
You will now get the selected portion highlighted in the timeline.
With the portion now selected, you could copy and paste it or save the selection as an independent audio file in a popular format that you want.
