Editing on a conventional tape recorder in the past
required advanced techniques, but with this unit editing
tracks is easy and accurate. Moreover, with a tape
recorder, an editing error could not be undone, but this
unit uses nondestructive editing, allowing you to edit
without altering the original data. This means that the
undo function can be used to correct an edit easily (see
“Undoing the last operation (single undo)” on page 41).
Overview of track editing
This unit has the following track editing functions.
COPY/PASTE (copy and paste)
COPY/INSERT (copy and insert)
MOVE/PASTE (move and paste)
MOVE/INSERT (move and insert)
OPEN (insert a silent section)
CUT (remove part of a track)
SILENCE (erase part of a track)
CLONE TRACK (duplicate a track)
CLEAN OUT (erase a track)
Among the track editing functions, COPY/PASTE, COPY/
INSERT, MOVE/PASTE and MOVE/INSERT use the IN and
OUT points as editing points. They also use the current
position when the editing operation is begun as the TO
point. SILENCE, CUT, and OPEN use the IN and OUT points.
These IN and OUT points are the same IN and OUT points
used during repeat playback. See “Using IN, OUT and TO
points” (on page 46) for instructions about how to do this.
The IN point is the starting point for the part of the track
subject to track editing.
The IN point is set at the time when you begin pressing

subject to track editing.
