The main waveform shows a selection of the source file, and will indicate Cues as well as the playhead position. You can ‘scrub’ the waveform by clicking and dragging with the mouse, to move the playhead position throughout the source file.

The waveform overview shows the entire source file waveform, with Cues and the playhead clearly indicated. Click and release on any part of the waveform overview to quickly move the playhead to that part of the source file, changing the main waveform selection.

While mousing over the main waveform, you’ll notice that two zoom controls become available - these are useful for zooming in and out of parts of the waveform to more accurately place Cues.
Zoom is available by clicking the + or - buttons above, using the keyboard shortcuts, or scrolling the mouse wheel while the cursor is positioned over the main waveform.
Freeze mode is useful for ‘freezing’ the waveform while you edit Cue length or Cue parameters, stopping the playhead from moving through the source file. This is particularly useful when editing Cue parameters during playback of a sequence or while auditioning the project in your host DAW.
Enable Freeze mode by clicking the respective button in the main waveform area, after mousing over the main waveform.
Grid edit mode
Grid edit mode allows you to adjust the Beatgrid of your loaded file. Click on the Grid button when mousing over the main waveform, to enter Grid edit mode, and display Grid edit controls.
Read more about the Grid edit controls in the Beatgrids section.
