Usually, you choose View and Show Clipping to play clips. Another way to display clippings is the Find Clipping option. You can run samples of clippings already resent in the Label track. In the Analyze option, the Find clipping option is available.
The minimum one clipped region has to be present. To run multiple clips as an individual, you can choose either clipped regions or unclipped regions. But all the unclipped regions in the selected clips cannot run as an individual. So, choose at least one clipped region to perform this operation.
Find Clipping Dialog Box
The dialog box of Find Clipping contains a start threshold input value, and a stop threshold input value.
A start threshold requires an input value. This input value is the number of clips you want to run as an individual clip. The default value for this parameter is 3. The clips you choose are labeled to run as an individual.
The higher is the value of the threshold, the recognizing of clipped region will be less and fewer labels will be created.
Stop Threshold is the value of unclipped samples to be available. To terminate the individual run of clips, the number of unclipped samples must be present. A higher threshold value determines a long-clipped region. And, it will generate fewer labels.
The clipped samples have a particular format to run in the form of an individual clip. This format is ‘number of number’. The first number denotes the number of clipped samples and the second number denotes all of the samples.
9 of 11 means that the number of the clipped regions is 9 in the 11 clips that are present in total. The remaining 2 are the unclipped samples. All these 11 samples will run as an individual. The Find Clipping option generates labels. These labels are added to the existing label track.
Buttons on the dialog box
There are three buttons present on the bottom bar of the Find clipping dialog box. These buttons are Manage, Ok, and Cancel.
The manage button in the find clipping dialog box contains details of presets of this tool. You can manage the presets of Find clipping through this button. One can manage the presets and see more details about this tool.
The OK button applies the effect. To apply the changes or effect you choose to the selected audio, you can click this option. After the application of the effect, the Find Clipping dialog box closes.
You might need to undo any changes made to the selected audio. If you do not want to apply the effect to the selected audio, press the cancel button. There are no changes to the audio. It does not add any new labels in the label track when you choose the cancel button.
