A couple of quick questions
I have a couple of quick questions. I come from an Adobe Audition background, so my questions are going to be 'I know how to do it in AA, how do I do it in Ardour?'. Yes, I signed up many years ago, but that was when I was just playing around with Linux and not actually using the program for any serious nature, or more than a quick "Let's see if it runs" type senario. I've just bought a 13" Macbook Pro and it only has a single 3.5mm in/out plug, :( so I've gone with a little USB audio device (Behringer UFO202) which works ok. So, now that you know my quick history; on to the quick questions.
My first question is that in AA, When I select audio and hit the delete button the audio is deleted, and then the whole track shifts along to the left, back to where the audio was cut out leaving no gap. Final Cut does this well, can Ardour do this? Am I missing something, or is it technique/mode/settings?
I found out how to the the playhead to where the mouse was, that was a great (and a wanted feature), (thanks to here: http://ardour.org/node/3687)
Also, does Ardour have a destructive editor mode, or similar where basically I double click on an audio track and the audio file pops up in to it's own window and I can only see that file to edit. Or, would this have to be done in another editor, such as Audacity? I do have Soundtrack, but coming from an AA background, it just lacked many features. Is there an "Edit track in..." feature?
I know these questions are probably asked plenty of times, but I didn't see an "Easy transition to Ardour from Adobe Audition" document. :)
I want to be able to use Ardour properly, but I just need a few quick steps in the right direction.
Thanks for your help,
