Logic Pro 9 Pulling hair out....

#1
Hello,

I did a live recording that is too long to burn to CD. I've set locators on the dead time between songs but I cannot figure out out to get the dead time deleted from the track. I've tried "edit/delete" with the region highlighted but the region just deselects and continues to appear and play in the track. This has got to be easy but I haven't figured it out yet.

Thanks

You need to cut the audio directly from the sample editor in order to physically alter the length of the audio file that's on the hard disc that you are trying to burn to CD. Editing in the arrange window is non destructive. You need "destructive" editing - available in the sample edit window - to permanently remove the audio and actually shorten the file in question.

No wonder I was pulling my hair out...duh! I knew it was simple although I haven't yet done much work with the sample editor. Guess it's time to learn.

Thanks very much.
