Introduction to the Subclip Editor

The Subclip Editor is a web application, which segments audio files into subclips. The clips can be exported as a new audio entry, edited in external applications such as David's MultiTrack editor or published directly to Facebook, Twitter or a website by configuring the related workflows. Subclip Editor is supported on all three major browsers: Chrome, Edge and Firefox.

Subclip Editor Overview

The main usage of the Subclip Editor is to segment audio into subclips, by setting in and out markers in the Detail Area and using customizable workflows to process these subclips.
