Track Overview

The track overview is a representation of the whole project over all 3 tracks, and the scrollbar. 

On the left side, there are 3 buttons with cut commands, referring to all 3 tracks.

The track overview shows all objects of the actual project. Audio objects may be imported into this overview, and be marked and moved there.

  • The highlighted area (between 2 vertical light lines) represents the timeline displayed.

  • The vertical double red line shows the sound head position.

Marked audio objects are identified by white borders.

Cut inside and move

The areas of the 3 tracks marked by in and out markers will be cut at all 3 tracks.


The audio blocks will be separated at the actual sound head position in all tracks.


A pause will be inserted over all tracks, starting at the position of the in marker, and ending at the out marker.


The compressor effect may be applied to all 3 tracks.

Visible area

The currently visible area in the tracks.

Audio objects

Display of all audio objects and their relative positions. The audio objects in the overview may be moved and copied with drag & drop, and also imported from the clipboard.


Actual soundhead position.

Edit area

The (edit) area marked by in and out markers.

Soundhead bar

Contains the soundhead icon, which can be moved via the slider. There are also the in and out markers, which are set in this bar and - differently from the MultiTrack Editor - not in the waveform.

The Track section

The track section is the core working area of the EasyTrack screen. It is comprised of the waveforms and function buttons for each particular track, and the sound head bar with in and out markers.

In contrast to the MultiTrack Editor, in the EasyTrack screen one does not choose between different track displays, but chooses the functional mode, which then shows the required elements.

On the left side of every track there are different buttons, sliders and a menu button with commands referring to the according track.

The track name is a text field, in which you can enter an appropriate name for the track. This field is also used to change the track's position (up, middle, and bottom) by drag & drop.

Switching the Y-Axis Scaling of the Volume scale

Right click into the scaling area to switch between dB and linear (%) display.

Functional Modes

Editing of audio in the EasyTrack screen is really simple. The 2 functional modes are activated with buttons next to the transport buttons, titled Mode. After selecting one, you can work directly in the tracks by using mouse buttons only.

By clicking on the Edit mode button, the Edit mode is activated. In the Edit mode audio objects can be cut via two possible methods:

  • Using cut buttons:
    Defining cut area by setting start and end marker, executing the cut by using the button Cut inside and move for all tracks or for a selected track, or choose a cut command by using the Submenu button
     in a selected track.
  • Using trim buttons:
    Right clicking on the targeted cut position. There will be two new trim buttons created. Move (by dragging) the trim buttons to the desired position; you also can move objects to the desired position.

With regard to the way the cuts are performed, the default setting Frame exact editing allows cutting at the borders of the MPEG Frames. For other editing ways please c.f. section Type Tab and Available Edit Types on page Edit Tools.

By clicking on the Volume mode button, the volume mode is being activated. In the volume mode audio objects may be faded:

  • A right click on the chosen position of an audio object creates a new volume button: Volume blinds are added reflecting these new fade points. The track section displays audio objects as an envelope.

  • Pull this button in the shown direction (default: vertical) until the correct setting is reached.

  • Right click on the button to switch its direction into horizontal. Now move the button with the left mouse button in horizontal direction.

  • The area marked by Marker in and Marker out is displayed on light background. Marked audio objects can be moved.
