Thats great and soo close to area selection, but the annoying bit is that it keeps re-rendering and creating new files. In programs like Sound Forge and Protools the "true" area selection means you don't have to split/or glue back the file part your working on, and as the FR' votes reveal would be so much more intuitive...

Its good but seems clumsy at the moment..

I think for true sound design it needs real area selection and processing, but until then this is a 'basic' workaround
Reaper 6 needs Area Selection!
