Quantizing Audio Event Lengths (AudioWarp Quantizing) (Cubase Pro only)

You can quantize an audio event or an audio selection range by applying time stretch to the content of the audio event.


  1. Perform one of the following actions:
    • Select the audio event that you want to quantize.

    • Select a range of the event that you want to quantize.

  2. On the toolbar, activate AudioWarp Quantize.
  3. Perform one of the following actions:
    • Click Quantize Presets, and select a quantize grid preset from the pop-up menu.

    • Click Open Quantize Panel, and define the quantize grid with the available parameters.

  4. Select Edit > Quantize.


The audio event is quantized, that is, its warp markers are aligned to the quantize grid by applying time stretch, and the audio sections between the warp markers are stretched or compressed to fit into the time interval that you set up on the Quantize Presets pop-up menu.


If you use a quantize value of 1/4 on audio that is based on 16th notes, the warp markers at the 1/4 note positions are quantized to the grid, and the remaining warp markers are moved, keeping the relative distances between the warp markers.
