Audio editing preview

When I am editing audio to remove stutters and verbal tics etc, I seem to be able to select the section to be cut and listen to that, but that seems rather counter-intuitive to me. I want to listen to what is left to ensure it sounds right.

At the moment I cut out the section, then click to just before my cut, play the track to ensure it sounds correct, and if it's right - great. If it's wrong, I have to undo and try again. I can't work out how to listen to the track minus the highlighted chunk before I make the cut. Am I doing something wrong or is this not possible?

not possible

your current technique of cutting, listening, and undoing, if necessary, is the fastest method I know of; I use ctl-Z [undo], Ctl-Y [redo] all the time when doing this

manually having to click to just before a [re-listen] section is tedious; I have wished for some automation on this for years ...

I like that idea  kayakman . I can see where that would  help.

That is similar to "Punch & Roll" in Studio One ( ),

at about 3 minutes in the video, though I am not at Don Baarns level of experience  or need . 

I use Audacity when I need more than Camtasia audio.
