    I have some secondary audio laid down, like room tone and crowd noise. I sometimes want to move clips vertically, close to the primary storyline, so I can better see how to adjust them in relation to what’s on screen. Is there a way, a button I can hold like there was in FCP 7, so that when I move it vertically, the timing of the audio element doesn’t shift at all? I’ve been looking into this online for the last 15 minutes and can’t find anything.
