Most of my MIDI Recording is done in sections. So, I will typically wind up with multiple MIDI regions throughout an arrangement. For example, I might play in a verse sent stop, and then record the chorus part. We have the MIDI region from our previous movie and I'll demonstrate consolidating MIDI regions by playing another MIDI part and consolidating both of these into one continuous region. I'll place the play head right at measure 13. (MUSIC) Now, if I wanted to make these one continuous region because it will help me with copy and pasting or just because visually, I prefer to look at a part as one continuous region. I simply highlight both regions and hit the g key. And now, I have one continuous MIDI region. The same applies to audio, when it comes to consolidating regions. I will choose two different audio loops, in the Sounds window, and drag them onto the Arrange window.
(SOUND) I'll mute my synth part because it's not in the same key as my audio. Return the play head to measure one. (MUSIC) That's our first audio loop. Here's our second, (MUSIC). And all I'll I have to do to create one continuous region is to highlight them just like I did with the MIDI regions and hit the g key. Keep in mind that consolidating regions is part of non-destructive editing. So, if for some reason you want to undo the consolidation, all you have to do is hit Cmd+Z, if you're working on a MAC, or Ctrl+Z on Windows. And the consolidation will be undone and you will wind up back where you started with multiple regions.
Region consolidation is very much a personal preference. You'll have to spend some time working in Studio One to decide if consolidating regions does help you when it comes to streamlining your workflow.
