Cubase Editing Length of Sample


I’ve recently been using Cubase to see all its features and to pick my main DAW. One thing I have noticed that I can’t figure out, is to stretch the end length of a sample in the arrangement view.

Example: I placed a kick in the arrangement view, but the sample ends at 1.1.3 and I want to stretch the end of the kick file to 1.2.1. How can I do this without time stretching the whole sample? How can I leave a gap at the end of the kick to make it go to 1.2.1 without pressing the time warp?


Use Audio>Events To Part

Audio Parts are like containers that can hold 1 or more Audio Events. Resizing the Part will not stretch the Audio in it.

One way of achieving that is to use the “Events to Part” command, which should be visible upon right-clicking the sample in the project timeline. – Can also be done via key command.

Parts (unlike Events) can be lengthened.


Thanks! I’m just pretty new to Cubase and its commands. But it works!

@raino sorry for doubling up on your already correct answer.

When I hit “enter” on my post, yours hadn’t showed up on my screen yet.

And just when I deleted mine, it got marked as the solution, so I un-deleted it.

I think we posted at the same time because when mine went up yours appeared at the same time.

At least we were consistent.

exactly how I experienced it as well.

And it looks like @SomeEDMProducer now marked your answer as the solution - so all is well.

haha - yes indeed!
