Hi - for starters, i’m new - and i’m an old bloke - so please go easy on me!
Due to a change/updating my PC - i’ve jumped from Cubase SX3 (stop laughing), to Elements 8.
Granted, the principles are the same - but one thing that is driving me mad is this.
Say i’m recording a guitar track - and i make a mistake - what i used to do on SX3 (I’m sure there are better ways to do it), was just start recording over the same track, a few bars before the mistake, and then play from there. Once i’d finished recording, i would then go to the beginning of the overdub, and drag the start point to where I wanted it to kick in (ie, the mistake). The trouble i’m having now, is that if I do that in Elements 8 - it moves the whole audio clip, rather than just shave a few seconds off the start. Is there any way of getting my old method back?
I hope that makes sense - and if anyone can help me out, i’d really appreciate it.
