For sound editing with SND our best advice is to learn first some emacs like keyboard combinations (see below), and then try them on a SND window. To make things easier start with a short (3 secs) mono (one - channel) soundfile.
[c-x means control-x or the keyboard combination <ctrl>-<x> ] [m-x means meta-x and at CCRMA is the keyboard combination <esc>-<x>]
Now, if you have a soundfile in the active window try the following combinations and watch the cursor in the displayed soundfile active window. If you don't have a soundfile you can use the open command in the file pull-down menu of SND.
A more complex but very useful combination for doing zero padding to your soundfile (i.e. adding silence) might be:
Try to move forward or backward using the following combinations:
Note: These combinations and more can be viewed on the online Help menu at the overview command at the right side of the SND active window.
