Playing Audio Files in the File Editor

You can play an audio file in the File Editor so you can hear the file and any changes you make to it.

To play an audio file
Do one of the following:
  • Click the Play button in the transport controls.

  • Press the Space bar.

Click the Play button (or press the Space bar) again to stop playback.

You can set the playhead in the File Editor in the same way you set it in the Timeline, by clicking in the waveform display or in the Time ruler, using the transport controls, or using the Playhead Location value slider. For more information, see Setting the Playhead Quickly.
