Audio slithers being left behind

When I cut and paste audio files on audio tracks in Cubase 5.5.3 and I then go to move the cut audio sections around, sometimes a tiny slither of audio remains around the bar mark where the cut was made. If I zoom in the audio has not been cut precisely even though I have snap to grid turned on and the grid type set to either beat or bar. The cuts I make are just in the normal arrange window and I don’t open the wave editor window up. (That thing intimidates me.) Any suggestions please?

If you have “Snap To Zero Crossing” switched on then Your cut will be made at the nearest zero crossing point to avoid a click on the file and not at the precise point of the scissors. Have a look in the manual for a more detailed explanation.

Thanks, that makes sense. I’ll check that out. :slight_smile:
