Logic Pro 8 Reversing Audio... and other functions

#1
i have an audio region... i select a certain portion of it, and double click it and it brings up the audio editor at the bottom

i've seen this window before, when i used to use Logic 7... so it's not completely Alien to me but how Reverse, and all the other functions are ALWAYS greyed out - i really can't get my head around what i need to do in order to enable these functions

again, probably just another minor point ive overlooked... and on the subject, what is the main purpose of the hyper editor?

cheers

Are you sure you actually have a selection established when the Sample Editor is opened? I know it seems obvious, but it's worth making sure.

HyperEditor: For programming and editing MIDI events. Specifically many people like to program drums in it. And it's also often used for drawing in various MIDI CC information.

The problem is that you are trying to edit an mp3 file, or Apple Loop. This won't work. MP3s and compressed CAF files like Apple Loops are by definition compressed and cannot be altered destructively while in this state from within Logic. They have to be expanded/converted to a full fidelity 44.1/ 16 file in order to be able to carry out destructive edits (ie: changing the waveform, not region based editing).
