Working with Regions

Regions are the building blocks of WaveBurner projects. Regions can include the entire source audio file or any continuous section of an audio file.

Edits made to a region do not change the source audio file, so you can always revert to the original, if necessary.

When you add an audio file to a project, a region is created. The new region appears in the Wave View area and in the Regions list. Regions are displayed chronologically—from left to right—in the Wave View area, and from top to bottom—in the Regions list.

Regions are alternately displayed in the upper or lower Region lanes in the Wave View area, making it easier to view any overlapping areas between two regions.

Once a region is added to your project, it is automatically assigned a track start marker, which contains the track number displayed by a CD player during playback. This track start marker is mirrored by a newly created CD track that uses the new region, and appears in the CD Tracks list.

You can edit regions in a variety of ways. You can copy, reorder, trim, and split regions, adjust volume levels, normalize, add fade-ins, fade-outs, and crossfades.

Note: A number of region parameters can be viewed and edited in the Inspector. See Viewing Region Info in the Inspector.
