You aren't slipping the contents of the region, you are shortening or lengthening the region. A real slip edit would not alter the region start and end points.

The only way to slip I know of is in the audio window.

Hello Brianm! I'm new on this forum and looking for knowledge can you please explain for me, how I can control shortening or lengthening?

Drag the lower left or right corners of a region.

Hey everyone,

First post here and sorry I'm reviving this thread due to my endless frustration with this kind of editing being absent.... (I remember reading this same thread yeears ago, I'm surprised it's not a more commonly requested feature).

And finally! We have slip editing in Logic Pro X 10.5!... but do we? I was so disappointed to find it's a key command and seems to only be available to adjust in very small increments. Does anybody know if my disappointment is founded here? Is there some way to drag the underlying audio file within a region with the cursor directly in the arrangement view?

Thanks for any help!

There is no way to do it at present. I have posted a thread like this and was directed to here (sort of) by Site Admin Mr. Nahmani (Thank you). This is my thread on the subject: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=150249

Not true. The slip increment relies on the Nudge value, so if you want slip to move by larger increments all you need to do is adjust the Nudge value. You can set the Nudge value up to 1/1 note if you want, which is a pretty big increment.

You can't drag the audio file, the feature only works with key commands.

Thanks dude! Yes I've since found that out, it actually works pretty well in such large increments for scanning through the audio file. Would be neat to be able to drag, that would allow quite fine adjustments of the underlying audio file without then having to tune in different nudge values. Have submitted a request to Apple and encourage others to do the same!

Yep, Id find painting next to impossible without them.

Ive seen where some have cut the end off, placed it over the nozzle of a spray can and decanted the paint too. Havent tried that myself yet, but it seems to work well.
