The Snd sound editor mindset
Some random remarks wrt. to the manual to understand Snd as how it
differs to what I expect from other sound editors. It's been a while
since I used it.
Snd uses marks. Place a mark at the cursor (the red cross-hairs)
using C-m. To play from the mark, click on the triangle corresponding
to the mark's red line.
To delete a mark:
Regions are different from the current selection. They are _copies_
of a part of a sound file, and do not change when the underlying sound
changes. The selection by default creates a region.
The selection can be set using the mouse, or by pressing C-space to
set one end, and move the cursor to set the other end. I.e. C-space
C-> will select from the current point to the end.
C-w deletes current selection.
