FCPX doesn't add edit at playhead and skimmer position - change edit "units"??? Detailed Audio Editing- change "edit range"?

So I have my skimmer and my playhead overlapping each other so they are exactly at the same position. I press CMD + B in order to add an edit/cut the clip YET the clip gets cut at different position (see picture below). What am I doing wrong?

Now I noticed this grey range / area around my playhead at the top. It's like an in/out or marked region. This is where FCPX set the cut. My believe: I am out of luck. This is the smallest I can get in FCPX when adding an edit which makes audio editing kinda hard. Now of course I don't want to believe this. I know I can change the "steps" in Premiere Pro to do super detailed audio editing. Can I do this in FCPX as well?

How do I change this range? How do I add an edit at the position where I want to add it?

Your playhead is on an audio subframe. The gray area indicates the video frame where the cut shows.

I've posted this video with a time code but creative cow sadly ignores time codes in youtube videos so jump to 5m30s.
If you don't want to watch it: You can toggle between sample based editing and frame based editing in Premiere which makes audio editing great. In FCPX I am just out of luck and can not perform the edits I want to do (it seems. I hope I am wrong).

You need to "Expand Audio/Video" on that clip then use your mouse to roll your audio back to create subframe audio edits. You can't do it with the keyboard or the Add Edit option. Those are reserved for full frame edits only.

You're trying to cut a video clip on a subframe level. Expand the audio or components and only cut the audio. But it'll have to be out of the primary. You can't blade expanded component audio on a subframe level in the primary. You can however trim the audio on a subframe level in the primary.
