Step 2. Select a Region

Select the region you want to mute. There are 4 ways to select a region: click anywhere of the waveform as a starting point and use hotkey like Shift+Home, Shift+End or Ctrl+A to select from start/end or all (1); click the left button and drag along with the waveform to the place wanted to be selected (2); specify the beginner & end of the session by moving the sliders below the waveform window (3); Input the start, end and length of time to choose specified region at the bottom of the editor (4).

Tips: If you do not select any part, some inactivated buttons will be in color grey and the corresponding features are unavailable; some audio effect will be directly applied to the whole waveform.
