Hi Rich,
if you press right bracket during playback, this selects a time range from the 
cursor to that point.
So if the cursor is initially at the start of the audio, you start playback, 
press right bracket, and then stop, this will select a time range from the 
beginning of the audio to where you pressed right bracket. There's no need then 
to have to press shift+j, since the start of the selection is already at the 
start of the audio.

Make sure the track is selected.  Then put a right square bracket like this, ], 
at the end of the section to be deleted.  Then press shift-j.  This will select 
from the beginning of the recording to the right square bracket.  Then press 
the delete key and wait a few seconds.  Then press j or the home key and then 
the space bar to listen.

Hi all. 

Recorded a 4 hour track and can't seem to edit it. 

I'm trying to cut out the first few minutes of the recording, and pressing the 
[ where I want it to start then doing J and delete usually works.  However, 
after pressing Shift and j the track goes back to the beginning. 

Can someone please advise? 

Many thanks.
