I have seen some threads on this but they do not completely answer my question and are already marked answer.
I want to edit out small segments of audio only. There is no sound track or anything. For example I want to remove a phone ringing. I know how to unlink and razor the audio although I can only do it if I more the audio to its own location on the timeline. My main issue is that the razor does not seem to work if I spin down the waveform display. I am using the waveform to find my exact edit point then spin up the display and cut. Seems strange, am I missing something. on a mac Premiere 5.1
I only have premiere pro Plus the documentation seems to say I should be able to do this right on the timeline
