So, the issue I'm running into is that, let's say I'm recording a drummer (20+ tracks), and he performs multiple takes of one song. In each take, he may start at different places, not play exactly the same tempo (the metronome was no help. See below*). In one take, his performance was flawless to the every end, but he mucked up the actual ending. So, I stopped the recording, and we started again, but only recording the ending on a new Layer. So, let's assume the best take was on Layer 4 of each of these 20 tracks. Layer 5 now contains a better ending, but just the ending, so he didn't have to retrack the whole song to get a more solid ending. As you know, punching in on drums is an exercise in futility in any DAW.
Now that I have the new ending recorded in a new layer, I want to simply select all the Layer 5 audio events (the song ending) and slide them to where they will line up to the end of Layer 4 so I can comp them. I can't seem to move the audio events in a Layer, which would be the more intuitive method. In Sonar, I can simply click-drag any audio clip to literally anywhere, and it will play wherever I land it. Is there an easy way to do this in S1?
*Metronome Note: We found the metronome, or tempo map frustrating, limited, and very difficult to work with. We simply couldn't use it.
