Sound Editor - Problem Adding Tracks

Question

Hi,

This is my first attempt at adding tracks to a cd file I have that is just one big file without seperate tracks. I have listened to the first song (20times at least) and added a track seperator at 7:29 where I thought I wanted it. I now want it at 7:28.

 

If I move the slider where it advances the position in the song, of course I can not land exactly on 7:28 so I stop at the closest time prior to 7:28 and let it play until 7:28 and then click the add track seperator button.

Unfortunately, that is not where the seperation is inserted; it is inserted at the place I started at - the closest time I can get to prior to 7:28. In this case, I think it is 7:24.

 

I tried to add another seperator at 7:28 and go back and delete the one at 7:24 but that doesn't work; the new one is not added but the old one is removed.

 

Any suggestions? I'd certainly appreciate it. I have been doing this for 2 hours now and there are only 6 tracks!

 

Thank you for your time and assistance.

 

cs.

Perhaps if you expand the time line (zoom in on the track) you'll be able to see where the first piece ends and where the next starts. With the expanded timeline, you should be able to be more precise.

Thanks so much. This is a feature I was not even aware of yet. The manual is usually good for explaining how to do something but not why or when you would normally choose to do it.

I'll try it asap!

Thanks.

Edit: I had to stop after doing three tracks to totally thank you for your suggestion. Not only can I place the seperator where I want it to go, I can see in the timeline where the silence actually is. You have really helped me so much with that one suggestion. I appreciate your time! Thanks, again! :):):)

 

2nd Edit: My file is still one large file with seperators; I'd like to save each clip to a different file for my mp3 player for example. Would this be what SPLITTING CLIPS is for? (Tells me how to do it but not what it is used for!)

Thanks, so much.

Sorry, you have to get some help from someone else. I haven't had that program on my computer for several versions (and years). I don't remember and I don't want to steer you wrong.
