There are a number of ways to do this, Andrew. And, for the most part, it's the same process as you'd use in any other video editor.
The simplest is to keyframe out the audio for the segment you want to remove and then to add the "bleep" sound on another audio track at the point you want it to appear.
Have you had experience with other video editors and keyframing? It will be easier to explain if you have.
If you're new to Premiere Elements and you want some basics, please check out my free 8-part Basic Training tutorial series at Muvipix.com. (Although the tutorials says they're for version 11, the program is virtually the same and all of the tuts are applicable.)
If you'd like more complete information about the program, including information on keyframing, you should check out my complete course at lynda.com.
But it's hard to give you specific instructions without knowing how much background you have in basic video editing.
Thats it! keyframing! Why didn`t I think of that!
I need step by step keystrokes to do it, never used editor before and the on-line help is as useful as a fart in a colander!
I have a different perspective on what I believe you have described...no keyframing - just cutting of Timeline audio and application of a Sound Effects Beep.
For now, I am assuming that you are using Premiere Elements 13/13.1 on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit and are working with audio not linked to video.
1. To cut the Timeline audio file...move the Timeline Indicator to the place where you want to cut the selected audio, either
a. click on the scissors tab on the stem of the Timeline Indicator
b. hit Ctrl+K
Repeat that wherever you want a cut the audio. When you have made your two cuts, right click the segment, and select Delete. If applicable, Delete and Close Gap.
2. For the beep, consider dragging the SciFi Electronic Beeps (3rd one of the choices) into the audio clip at the spot on the audio clip where you want the beep to be heard. See Audio Tab/Sound Effects/Science Fiction/SciFi Electronic Beeps.
Probably other sources of beeps. And, trimming of audio can be done in the Preview Window for the unlinked audio.
Please review and consider, and then let us know what works for you. Any questions or need clarification, please do not hesitate to ask. But, in order to fine tune the reply, please give more information where indicated.
I did not see your post 2 until after I had commented in my post numbered 3. Looks like we posted about a minute apart.
We will be watching for further developments from whichever way you find works for you.
Hi, I have managed to separtae clips in premier elements 11 and even added a beep over the voice, but can`t cut the voic3 out completely.
I tried lowering the yellow line for just that part of voice but it bouces back up again?
