If the audio clip is too long, you can left-click and drag on the end of the Clip to truncate it. This will only affect the size of the Clip on the timeline, it will not edit the size of the corresponding Pad.

You can also edit clips by first selecting the relevant audio clip in the timeline, then adjusting the Cue start and end point in the Audio Track Deck Waveform area, which is known as the Clip region (not pictured below). In timeline this will show the clip preview change in real-time (pictured below):editclipfromwaveform.gif

Right-clicking on an Audio clip or track in the Timeline will bring up the 'Split to New clip' option. Clicking this will separate the audio into two separate clips. Other functions shown below mirror the same shortcuts found & described in the Application Tool Bar’s Edit menu.

NOTE: It is not possible to use 'Split to New Clip' if all 8 clips slots are already filled
