qtractor's workflow as to arrange loops in the time-line might be a bit

> As for edge dragging, in Acid this allows you to play a portion of a

when you import (or drop) a new audio file into the qtractor time-line,
it's always assumed that the new clip is in tempo with the current
session. if you find it is not the case, you can trim and/or
(time-)stretch the clip until you see fit. take a tour:

- to trim the clip you can simply select (cf. Edit/Select Mode/Range,
Rectangle) over either edge and press the Delete key (Edit/Delete). you
can also drag with the mouse either clip edge to the desired start/end
location, making it shorter or even longer (silence will be heard if the
clip is longer than the file it represents:). remember, if you're *not*
pressing the shift/ctrl key modifiers you're actually trimming or
extending the clip.

- to stretch the clip to current session tempo you can shift-drag either
clip edge, so that the whole clip length fits/snaps to one or more
bars. or to whatever you se it's the right stretch proportion.

once all audio clips are settled this way you can change the session
tempo globally and all audio clips will be re-stretched automatically
(check View/Options/Audio/Playback/Automatic time-stretching)

>> you see, all that depends on the current session tempo and on each audio

ah, i belive the correct writing would be:

"À sua saúde"

meaning, in plain english:

"To yours" ("good health" implicitly)
