Apple – Support – Discussions – Editing cuss word from podcast? …. Karl_out_West has the answer.
One is in the standard Tracks display.. let the audio play up to the element to be deleted, and press the space bar. this will stop the playback and the ‘playhead’ right at that spot. Edit>split track. Press space to play, and at the end of the element to be deleted, press spacebar again to stop. Again do edit>split track.
You have split the audio into three regions: keep|delete|keep .. you need to click in the blank space BELOW the track to deselect the track, then click on the region-to-delete. Press the Delete key on the keyboard. This leaves a hole in your sound track.. click on the rightmost region and drag it to the left, across the space, right up against the leftmost ‘keep’ region.
SAVE YOUR WORK.. CMD-S.
There is another way to do it with the Edit Region icon, but you’ll have to use GB’s Help command for that one.
