Something I miss in Ardour is mouse-dragging the “waveform” of a region without moving the region (boundaries) itself!
Example: We have a to fix only one late note of a recorded instrument:
So in order to move the one note, you now have to something like:
- cut before the late note
- cut after the note
- move the newly created short region a little bit to the left (to where the note should be)
- extend the end of the region (fill gap that opened to following region)
- maybe smooth out overlaps (crossfades)
In former times (on Cubase: “Hold down Alt-Shift, click the event, and drag to the left or right”) I was very used to being able to drag the contents of an audio region without moving the region itself, looks something like this (please don’t mind the bad painting skills, I’m an audio guy ):
I really love and miss this small but very handy feature. To fix our example, you just do:
- cut before
- cut after
- drag “waveform”
(Of course (from Cubase manual): “You cannot slide an audio event past the start or end of the actual audio clip. If the event plays the whole clip, you cannot slide the audio at all.”)
Is this maybe somehow possible in Ardour and I missed it? Or do you have a suggestion for better workflow for me?
Thanks a lot and best regards
