So you’re looking for new programs to help with your audio editting of different projects you have. You come across soundbooth — you have no idea how to use it. You come across Garage Band — you still have no idea how to use it. You come across Ableton — you don’t know how to use it but you found this blog post to help you get started by teaching you one of the basics. In this post, you will learn how to cut an audio clip in half so you can either shorten or freely move the clip at will.

First. Select your audio clip from your computer. (Note: It must be a .wav file in order to work in Ableton)

Second. Click the Arrangement View setting. This will give you a landscape view of your audio clip so it becomes more like a timeline for each sound wave made in the clip.

Third. You have an option here. You can click and drag the audio clip or you can copy and paste the audio clip into the highlighted track display towards the top of the screen.

Fourth. Click your audio clip at the place you want to split it. (Note: you can find this place exactly by playing the audio clip by pressing spacebar, and then clicking space bar again to pause.) An orange vertical line with a downward pointing triangle should appear in the clip.
