You can crop a clip by using a gesture called slip editing. Slip editing lets you “roll out” the beginning or the end of a clip to different places without changing the position of the music. Imagine that the clips are “windows” that allow you to see and hear pieces of audio or MIDI. You can change the size of that window so that less of the data is visible. If it's not visible, it won't be heard during playback. The data still exists, so you can enlarge the “window” by slip editing the clip. The visible data will then be audible.Now, if you point to the left or right clip edge, the cursor changes and you can drag the clip edge to a new location.You can fade individual clips by using the Smart tool or Edit tool . Drag the upper left corner of a clip to create a fade-in. Drag the upper right corner of a clip to create a fade-out.To change the fade characteristics, right-click an existing fade and select the desired fade type from the pop-up menu.This tutorial has shown you how to use different tools to shape your recordings into well-organized and great sounding projects. The next step is mixing, which is covered in Tutorial 7 - Mixing and adding effects.
