    Default SoundForge pro 10 - HELP NEEDED

    Every time I cut (or copy) from something and past it into a new window and then save it as an mp3 or wav file it automatically adds like a quarter second of nothing to beginning and end of my sample. I assume it's for blending or smoothness or whatever. But I cut my samples at very specific points, which makes them start on beat when/if I use them as an audio clip in a sequencer (typically FL9)

    At first I thought FL was adding it but then discovered that SF was doing this. I have tried cutting the 'intro' and remainder of blank sound that it adds but once I save it, it automatically adds it again. I've looked through the options and help and can't figure it out after changing a bunch of settings it still does this.

    I'd really appreciate and answer. I'm sure more than likely it's something silly that I overlooked (i hope)

    thanks!

    I dont have this problem, maybe its Dc offset, I think i zoom in way to far to get the chops accurate. Also saving as Mp3 probably creates space in any program, since most likely it would be thrown on a red book audio cd or the web and not destructivly worked on with a daw rather than wav.

    I usually dont use the regualr export though. I select a loop and use the R key to make a region then do it again and again till i have all the segments I need then go to tools and extract regions. Its just quicker, but naming the files suck. Have seprate folders for by the name of the songs to put your chops in, if you dont already.

    Things to try

    Go to tools and select find and choose end of silent region. With this it will exclude the silence inbetween the look excludes the additional silence.

    Go into the edit menu and then selection. Make sure the snap settings are off.

    thanks for the advice, I will give these a shot. I zoom in as far as I can anytime I cut anything. I'm sure it takes me 10x longer than most to chop shit, but I get OCD with it!

    it may be because I am saving into mp3s. I usually would save to wav's, but I'm been trying to see if this while save me space without sacrificing quality. I'll give that a shot too.

    thanks

    update.... Nothing changes this. I did some searching on soundforge forums/discussions I guess this is something that just naturally occurs due to the format being an mp3. It doesn't happen with wav's.

    So much for saving space. Oh well... wav's are better, just bigger files. I can always get yet another external hard drive

    Thanks again for taking the time to read/answer my question, I appreciate the help

    Yeah i should of elaborated more, but mp3s purposly have silence put into them so the audio wont get cut off when its put on to a cd. Its a part of the red book standard.
