Is there not a simpler way? Manually going through a track to select
audio is extremely tedious.
As for time shifting, it inserts silence so it could be a little
helpful, but again is very tedious if I have to insert and listen for
the correct amount of silence to mix tracks. Even then there's still
the problem of not being able to select and work with an individual
track unless I use shift s.
