Let's say you recorded some guitar.

One of the strums is not on beat.

How would you fix this?

Sorry I'm a little rusty.

Something like highlight the section you want to adjust and drag the waveform forward or back?

Ok, I understand now.
What you're looking for is called quantization.

How noticable is the error?
Is it only noticable to you as the composer?
If it were played for a general public audience would it be noticeable?

If not consider leaving it in, minor barely noticeable errors make music more "humanized" and help remove the sterile over processing of a lot of modern music.

I had a faux pas with a song I wrote/recorded on a Fostex 4-track back in '87.
I harmonized the words never and ever together (or was it always??).
I chose to leave it in. Some who have heard it, caught it, others haven't.

I'm not looking to adjust the whole track. Just a few strums where my buddy and I were noticeably not in time together.

I figured it out.

Highlight area in question.
Shift s to split.
Alt drag mouse to move waveform within media item
