Range editing offers different options for editing as it relates to a selection of time rather than events. Certain editing functions are only available when you are using a range selection. They are accessed from the Edit>Range submenu.
The Cut Time function removes the selected portions of any events within the range selection. These can be across multiple tracks and can be of various types: MIDI, audio, automation, etc. When the range is removed, any material to the right will be moved up to replace the cut time, a ripple effect. See Figures 9.48 and 9.49.
