How to move clips from arrangement to session view?

If you have a midi or audio clip in arrangement view that you’d like to move to session view, there are 2 ways to do so.

  1. Right click on a clip in arrangement view and copy it, tab to session view, right click on the desired clip slot and click paste.


  1. If you have multiple clips of a song that you want to move to session view, highlight the area of time you want using any track (say bars 1-9), right click and then click “consolidate time to new scene.” Tab to session view to see a new scene created.

This will make a new scene in session view with all the clips that occurred during the highlighted area of time that you selected in arrangement view.
