Ability to select multiple sections of an audio track?

May 08, 2015

Is there a way to use the audio editor tools to select multiple sections of an audio track for editing?

I'm doing a lot of voice recording and the histogram makes it obvious where I'm taking breaths. I'd like to select all of those portions and reduce volume for a cleaner voice recording, but the selection tool only seems to be able to make and edit one selection at a time. Is there a keyboard shortcut to do this? Or some sort of plugin? Being able to select multiple pauses and take care of them all at once would save me a huge amount of time in the editing process.

Thanks . . . Dave

Hi Dave, 

I believe you can only edit one section at a time or apply the changes to the entire set up of audio, not just select multiple sections at a time such as with the CTRL button how you may select multiple items on a slide for example. 

It sounds like a good feature request though!

Well, I guess it is what it is and I'll submit a feature suggestion.

In the meantime, is there a reasonably priced or freeware third party Windows compatible recording and editing program that would let me select multiple sections to adjust at once or, better yet, has filters with variable tolerances so I could select multiple areas that way?
