Flex Time—similar to what is often referred to as elastic audio in other applications—greatly simplifies the process of editing the timing of audio material. You can compress or expand the time between specified points in an audio region without the need for more traditional processes like cutting, nudging, and crossfading.

You edit the timing of audio material by choosing a Flex Time algorithm. When you choose an algorithm, the contents of the audio track are analyzed for transients, or significant peaks, and any detected transients are marked in the audio regions. You then edit the timing using flex markers. When you move a flex marker, the audio on either side of it is time compressed or expanded. The initial boundaries within which this is done are determined by the transient markers.

Flex Pitch allows you to quantize and edit the pitch of audio material. You edit the pitch of audio material by choosing the Flex Pitch algorithm. The contents of the audio track are analyzed for pitch using a pitch detection process, and the results are plotted on a pitch curve.

You can edit the timing of audio in the Tracks area and the pitch in the Audio Track Editor.
