The Trimmer tool also has three different modes, and these can be seen by clicking and holding the Trimmer tool button. The three modes are Standard, TCE, and Loop. Of these, the mode of most interest in the context of what we are looking at is the default Standard mode. We will look at the TCE mode in a later chapter, and the Loop mode is more geared toward arrangement issues. With this tool selected, you can truncate the start and end points of a region by placing the cursor—which will be either in the shape of an open bracket ( [ ) or a closed bracket ( ] ), depending on which end of the region you are working on—at the region boundary and then clicking and dragging to the desired length.

These kinds of things can be incredibly tempting to just pass over, but you really shouldn’t, because sometimes, without actually listening for bad edits, I have heard things in tracks I have been working on that I didn’t even realize weren’t right. It may have been just a tiny, little sound: perhaps a “glitch” or perhaps the tail end of a sound cut ever-so-slightly short—things that, when I actually looked into it, were in fact editing mistakes and things that I never would have realized would have been as audible as they were.

The only real way to get it done with certainty is to roll up your sleeves and get to work with the editing tools, cutting up the part you have copied into individual notes, words, or phrases, and then moving them into the right place by hand.
