You can drag individual beats or groups of beats to new positions. This gives you complete control over where each transient ends up.
You can quantize to a particular note resolution. This can be a very quick way to fix a clip, if your markers are fairly close to where you want them to end up.
You can slip-stretch the clip, to make it fit a larger or smaller block of time. This is a very quick way to adjust a clip that has good timing, but whose tempo may be a little different from the project you want to use it in.
You can combine techniques: slip-stretch a clip to fit a new tempo, then quantize or drag any markers that are out of sync.
If the audio contains various timing problems, but you want to fix them manually instead of letting AudioSnap fix them automatically, see Adjusting the timing of a solo performance. This gives you complete control over every aspect of your audio, and allows you to manually drag audio beats around to perfect the timing.
If you need to fix a multi-track performance, such as a multi-mic drum kit or a full band, and you need to maintain phase relationships between tracks, see Adjusting the timing of a multi-track performance while maintaining phase relationships.
If you want to synchronize the timing of clips on different tracks, you can fix this with AudioSnap if the sync errors aren’t huge. For details, see Synchronizing the rhythms of out-of-sync tracks.
If you want to quickly tighten up a performance in a project that already has a fixed tempo or varying tempo map, see Quantizing audio. This is useful if you like the performance, but the timing is off in a few places.
If you want to extract the groove from one clip and apply it to another clip, see To Groove Quantize an audio clip. You can extract a groove from both audio and MIDI clips.
