Hi,

 

Having a frustrating time of it at the moment.

I have imported some multitrack wav files for an SD card which was recorded on from the rodecaster podcast pro

Now when I go to edit a track, I highlight a section, push delete. But instead of it deleteing the audio it simply greys it out and silences it. 

I am wondering 

1. how to fix

2. Is it something to do with how the files were imported, because I tested recording straight into audition and it edited fine.

 

Please help??

That is exactly what will happen if you try to delete a part of a single track in a multichannel file. If you think about it, that makes sense; if you removed the time then you'd be removing it from the other channels too. So all that can happen when a single channel is selected and the delete key pressed is that the content is deleted, not the time.

 

The solution is to split the multichannel file out into its component parts, and edit those independently. Then the delete key will operate as normal.
