Quantize the timing of audio regions in the Audio Track Editor

When Flex Pitch is turned on in the Audio Track Editor, you can quantize, or automatically correct, the timing of regions on an audio track. This is especially useful when regions on the track contain the right notes but are not perfectly in time with the project tempo.

When you quantize the timing, selected regions on the selected track are adjusted to the selected note value. You can quantize the timing of regions with drums, single-note instruments, and chordal or polyphonic instruments.
