Orlando asked: Would track 2 then had 30 seconds of empty space or would it
start at the 30-second mark? It would start at the 30 second mark. Having
done the align to cursor routine, select track 2 and press j to go to
beginning of track. Check the position either by pressing left square
bracket or going to the toolbar and it will show 30 seconds. As a bytheway,
if you record something that runs for - say 5 minutes on one track and
select that track and then record on a second track with shift-r, the
recording on the second track will start at the current cursor position.
That can be good or bad, depending on your intentions (smile).

Deselect track 1 and arrow down to track 2 and select the track. From the
tracks Menu select Align Tracks and then Align to Cursor/Selection. The
quick way to do that is alt-t followed by a and followed by c. Track 2
