I'm new to Sound Editor.  Reading the Roxio Help doesn't help.

I'm trying to understand the Clip Editor.  (I think I can handle the Mix Editor.)  Help refers to inserting a new audio file by "In the Clip Editor, click to move the playback cursor to the location ...", then click "Add Audio File".  Doesn't seem to do anything.

Also, how can you view the entire track in the Clip Editor?  My display shows only the first just under 3 minutes.  Since there is no scroll bar, how do you get past those first 3 minutes?

Also, please give any examples of what I can do in the Clip Editor, other than the tool buttons at the top.

I don't mind doing testing/research, but I've been lost for two days.  Any ideas will be sincerely appreciated.

If you use add audio file multiple times or if you select a group of music files, they are added one after another. If you use the playback cursor, and add a new file, that is where it shows up. Essentially you can add a new audio file in the middle of an existing file.

Use the little magnifying glass to zoom in on a file (as many times as necessary to see what you want. If you zoom in enough, you'll get the bar beneath the wave form.

The program is a basic audio editor where you can make mixes, change the audio format, do a little cleaning, add some minor audio effects etc. Play with it. You never change the original audio file(s) unless you purposely overwrite the original file.

What are you trying to do other than write the left and right channels to different ???

Look at attached picture.  Follow the steps, after you bring in your clips.

EDIT:  The picture is from EMC 9 Sound Editor, but I think that it is the same in EMC 8.

Great graphic.  Your answers are really helpful.  But one thing I still don't follow.  You indicate that I can add a clip essentially in the middle of a new clip.  However, when I tried, it seems to add the new file only at the end.  I guess because of the Roxio "Help" that says "you must select a location that already contain a clip".  When I split a clip and moved the end a little to leave a gap, I could add a new clip.  I think your answer says I don't need to do that.  Basically, I am trying to have Clip 1 of, say 2 minutes, then insert a new clip at the 1 minute poistion so that I have Clip 1 (part a), then Clip 2, then Clip 1 (part cool.gif.
