There are many reasons why you may want to insert silence into your project. This video shows you how to insert speific lengths of silence into your project.
- Now I'd like to show you how to insert silence…into audio tracks.…There are many reasons why you may want to do this.…Maybe you're recording a vocalist singing to music,…and during the song you can hear the singer…clearing her throat or coughing in between verses.…Maybe you need to generate a specific length…of silence in a track,…to match up with audio that's on another track.…Now, we've previously seen that you can create silence…by selecting some audio,…and choosing Edit, Remove Special,…and choosing Split Cut, or Split Delete…if you don't want to paste this audio anywhere else,…which removes that audio…and splits the clip into two parts.…
You can then drag out a selection that touches…both of those parts,…and hit Cmd or Ctrl+J to join them back together,…and the space between them becomes silence.…There's another way to get the same result with fewer steps.…I'm going to hit Cmd or Ctrl+Z…a couple of times to undo all that.…So, with this audio selected, I'll go to the Generate menu,…and here I'm going to select Silence.…
