Making silent cuts and trims

Okay. In this section, I want to talk about making silent trims and cuts. When we talk about trimming or cutting, we're talking about where we are in the waveform. A cut happens in the middle of the waveform, and a trim happens in the beginning or the end of the waveform. So, a cut happens somewhere in here, and a trim is when we're taking the heads or tails off a waveform. The trick to making a silent cut is to make your edit right at the zero crossing point. I'm going to zoom in really tight here on this waveform, and just show you the waveform against the zero crossing.

So, we can see, here is where the waveform crosses this zero line. Here is where it crosses it again. When we make our edits, we want to make them at that point, anywhere the zero crossing is. So, I could do it here, here, and that will produce a silent cut. If we make our edit like this where there is amplitude, especially if they are on different sides of the zero line, we'll get a little pop or click, o...
