    I have some background audio that has some wind noise and other disturbances. Its an ambient piece and I want to try just copying and pasting bits of adjoining good audio and see if I can blend them in.

    1. In general, how do I select and copy a small segment of any clip (video/audio).

    And specifically,

    2. how do I select, copy and paste a section of audio without copying the coupled video/audio pair at once (when audio was captured in camera). I want the pasted bit to sit ‘over the top’ of the existing audio (or replace that snippet) without pushing the existing audio back.

    BTW I’ve just found Link Clips which takes care of the video/audio decoupling issue.

    You can also “Control” click on a A/V clip to select only one w/o unlinking.
    Slice the audio piece to the part you want, then copy it

    You could also create a compound audio clip to build your ambiance sounds and drop it in one track. I would work in Fairlight to make things easier.

    Fairlight page. It only copies audio and so being linked to video is not going to change your video track like on the Edit page or force a clumsy workaround.

    Fairlight also shows you layers (which you need to enable) so you place atmos fill on top of the clip and can easily crossfade between those layers. It is one of the most powerful features of Fairlight. The edit page is not the place for audio finesse.
