Join Brian Block for an in-depth discussion in this video Performing a ripple edit, part of Learn REAPER 5: The Basics.
- [Voiceover] Let's take a look at how to perform…a ripple edit, which is designed to keep your media items…from developing gaps while you edit.…So I've got a vocal track here and I'm gonna zoom in…a little bit so I can see it better…and then stretch my track out so I can see the wave form.…There we go.…So what I'm gonna do here is I'm gonna make…a time selection by clicking in the timeline and dragging…and then I'm gonna make a split within that timeline.…So I have three distinct media items.…So I'll hold Shift and hit the S key.…
So now I have three distinct items.…With ripple editing turned off, if I delete this item,…the beginning and end stay where they are…with this empty space in between.…This might be useful if I was trying to take out…a breath or some other odd sound,…but keep the timing of the track intact.…I'm gonna go ahead and do that with Command Z.…The alternative to that is a ripple edit.…A ripple edit will keep the remaining pieces of that…media item flush against each other.…
Let's try it.…In the toolbar, this button will enable ripple editing.…
