Click on the time display. The time display will change to the rhythm settings. Type in your desired bpm and speed. The metronome will automatically adjust. You can also change the signature there.

I’d like to cut sequences. What should I do?

We currently only support cutting the beginning and end of a recorded sequence. This works as follows: simply click on the left or right edge of a seqence and drag to the desired cut position.

To get the effect of cutting out the middle of a sequence:

  1. Cut the end of the original sequence until the audio position left of the cut-out.
  2. Go to the Audio Library and "drag-and-drop" the same recording a further time onto the track.
  3. Cut the beginning of the new sequence, until the audio position right of the cut-out.
  4. Adjust the position of both sequences as desired.

How do I go back to the projects menu?

Slide over the name of your project over the time display with your cursor and click on "Leave project and go back to your project menu"

... or simply click the "Return to last page" button in your browser.
