Skipping Sections During Playback

You can automatically skip a selected audio range during playback. This way, you can audition what the material would sound like without specific sections.


  1. On the transport bar, activate Skip Range.
  2. Activate Perform Pre-Roll and Perform Post-Roll.
  3. If you want to use the Play Audio Range function, activate one of the Ranges modes.
  4. Depending on the Ranges mode, do one of the following:
    • If you have activated Time Selection, make an audio selection in the wave window.

    • If you have activated Region Between Marker Pairs, click between a marker pair.

    The audio range that will be skipped is displayed on the time ruler along with the pre-roll and post-roll times.

  5. Select Play Audio Range, or press F6.


The selected range is skipped during playback.

You can also use the factory preset for skipping selections during playback. Activate Skip Range, make an audio selection, and press Shift-F6.


This mode also works with the Start Playback from Edit Cursor button if there is a time selection or if exclusion start and end markers are set. In this case, the pre-roll and post-roll times are ignored.
