    I can't seem to find instructions for this task - How do I set up the start and stop points for a loop within a selection?
    Thanks

    Use your mouse to highlight the section, just like you would to "Copy/Cut and paste" in other software.

    Go to start of section with cursor, left click and hold until you reach end of
    section and the section should be highlighted.

    Harder to describe than do! :)

    Okay...Thank You,
    I can now isolate a section of the song.

    My next issue deals with looping the selected section.

    I can get the section to play/auto loop as long as I'm playing back at normal speed however, when I change (slow down) the speed, I get the slowed down playback of the selected section but it no longer loops automatically.

    I'm almost there!

    Hi again,
    There's a couple of neat ways.



    1. Highlight desired section and set playback speed , then choose Shift + spacebar
    to loop section.

    2. Choose section and set speed as above then go effects=repeat=number of times.

    Hope this helps:).

    or hold down the shift button and click play at the same time.
