    I'm using the Vegas Pro video editor.
    I've not had much luck in searching for an answer for this problem on
    google and YouTube tutors.
    My manual has gone missing. It might have been packed away during the house

    What I want to do is to take a selection of the audio track on copy it to
    another track. At the moment he only way I can find to do this is to cut a
    part of audio track and copy the piece but there must be a way without
    having to cut the audio track. My purpose is to find some clean sound on
    the audio track that I can use to replace an unwanted sound on the audio
    There must be a easy way to do this put i've tried selecting a section of
    the audio track on the time line and right clicking on it but can't find a
    way of copying it.

  2. Select the area you want, and render it as a new file
    in the same format (likely: .WAV, 16-bit, 48KHz...).
    Or, you can copy the whole track, paste it onto a new
    track, and cut and delete the parts you don't want to
    use... Or, you can cut the original track, copy/paste
    the part(s) you want to another track, and restore
    (or not - the cuts won't hurt anything...;-) the
    original track to its original condition. Or,....;-)
    (There are often many ways to do such things.;-)

    Thanks David.
    It does not look like there is a way of just copying a section of the audio
    track without first cutting it. In the past I have needed to copy the
    complete video clip to a unused part of the audio track then cut out the
    bit I wanted. I was trying to find an easier way to do it. You can create
    sub clips but I think you still have to cut the audio track.

    All manuals can be found at
    The one you want (English) has "enu" in the title.

    I have found that the easiest way to get a small portion of the audio trackis to open the event (what Vegas calls a clip) in the trimmer. Highlight the portion you want, right click and drag it to the timeline and choose "Audio only" and one of the 3 choices that come up depending on your needs.

    Thanks. I don't use the trimmer window much but in this case it could be
