There is literally no way to do this (yet) in Studio One 3 without resorting to either interrupting the audio with a crossfaded splice or using a 3rd party audio editor.  This is an extremely useful feature and needs to be in there!

I'd like to see this and many other audio event editing options made available.

Adobe Audition is an audio editor first, so it has lots of processes available like Phase Invert, Convert to Mono, etc. Studio One only has the option to normalize a clip all the way to 0 dBFS. Would be nice for the audio Edit pane to be more useful in this regard.

This would be great!

The manual "drawing" method you suggest is good. But I'd suggest having the computer detect and restore the waveform within a selection can be much more useful at times. You'd be able to clean an entire clip from clicks and pops with one click (of the mouse).

Similar to WaveLab. They have something called "Waveform Restorer" with several restoration methods. See snapshot:

We need a spectrogram like audition with tools to draw out specifics thinks, for fine audio editing

I know this is an old post, but might be of interest:

CoolEdit Pro could do this years ago !  It gave you the ability to manually edit (raise or lower numeric value) of a single sample using the mouse. You could also just highlight the sample and enter a new numeric sample value with the keyboard, or delete the sample all together if you wanted. These low level editing features were removed when Adobe bought CoolEdit and renamed it Audition. In fact, I still use Cooledit Pro as an external audio editor from within Reaper DAW. (Has its own dropdown menu selection in Reaper). Have only tested under  Win7 32bit OS and XP 32bit OS.

First, the waveform view would need to be reworked to actually show the full resolution of what's going on in the data.
