    Cool Video, thx a lot! Could be much improved when using a normalize function for your voice and using a voice over compressor ;-)

    Thanks, and fair point – the audio is a little quiet. :)

    Fantastic tutorial…I've been using Logic for a while but I'm still terrible at fine audio editing. This gives me new hope! I was wondering also where I could get the exact Amen audio sample you use in the tutorial so I can practice along with you. Thanks!

    Enjoyed the videos.

    While trying out a few of these techniques, I dug up the 'Create two nodes at region border' and mapped it to alt-m. Less clicking is always good…especially with the damn nodes.

    Not sure if it still is but it used to be available on Wikipedia (search for the amen break).

    What other DAWs have this style of audio clip chopping? I can't seem to emulate this process in Ableton or FL Studio.

    @thebledanger: I'm using Samplitude with a pleasure (look for Samplitude SE in audio/keyboard magazines). To trim several objects with one mouse click you have to press the “Alt” key while shorten the object length or setting a fade. Sadly the grid is deactivated temporarily when pressing the “Alt” key.
    When using Samplitude “standard” or Samplitude Professional it's a real cool thing to divert the “Object Freeze” feature from it's use – first freeze the object, then edit within the freezed Object via context menu.
