The Add New submenu provides commands for adding stereo or mono tracks, label tracks and time tracks.
See Tracks Overview for details of the different kinds of tracks.
The Mix submenu provides commands for mixing and rendering your selected tracks to a single stereo or mono track.
|Note that this is very different from what happens when you use the dropdown menu of the Track Control Panel to change the Sample Rate of a track.
This instead concentrates or spreads the audio samples and thus changes the length of the track. Increasing the rate squeezes the existing samples into a shorter length (so increasing playback speed and pitch), while decreasing the rate spreads them out over a greater length (so reducing playback speed and pitch).
Removes the selected track(s) from the project. Even if only part of a track is selected, the entire track is removed. You can also remove a track by clicking thein its upper left corner.
The panning choices are extreme Left or Right pan or Center pan. If no tracks are selected, pan is changed in all tracks.
The Align Tracks submenu provides a set of commands to help you align your selected tracks in various ways. In particular there are two very useful commands that enable you to align tracks end-to-end, one after the other, or align them all together.
The Sync-Lock feature ensures that length changes occurring anywhere in a defined group of tracks also take place in all audio or label tracks in that group, even if those tracks were not selected.
This lets you keep existing audio or labels synchronized with each other, even when carrying out actions like inserting, deleting or changing speed or tempo. You can turn this feature "on" or "off" (default is unchecked "off") by clicking this menu item.
See Sync-Locked Track Groups for more information.
