The Open Append command has returned in the File menu in CS6 but this only works to open and join a whole list of audio files one after the other in the Waveform view producing one long file. This can be inserted into the Multitrack view but only as a single clip.
What we need then is an Insert Append Clip command for the Multitrack.
Thanks for posting.
I'm envisaging something even simpler - it doesn't need to be a separate file menu command - just a dialogue box that pops up when you insert files into a multitrack, asking whether they should be inserted onto multiple tracks, or one track.
There could also be a "do not show this again" checkbox, and if this is checked, the user could change the settings in the program options area.
(This is pretty much how it works in Samplitude.)
A related matter happens when you want to copy a group of clips that is spread across 2 or more tracks and then simply paste them further along in the timeline to the same tracks the source clips were on.
Audition will get the first track right but will then open new tracks for the other clips when you past them.
This is something we have to do quite often in long programs and it gets frustrating to then have to then move all the
other pasted copies one by one back to where they belong (the original tracks) and then delete the new tracks the
paste operation created.
There should be some sort of over-ride or dialog that allows the user to say basically they want the pasted result to be placed on the same tracks as the source material.
Just curious. Has there been an answer yet as to how to insert existing audio clips from a file to a waveform view in CS6. I create voiceovers or edit large interview files that require audio tones and sfx for my clients in production studios. The tones are inserted between takes as a courtesy tone to denote separation. In the older versions of Audition, the function was as simple as mix/pasting an audio file, selecting insert or overlap, set the import level percentage and paste. And each time this function was exercised, Audition would use the same settings you last used to reduce repetition of settings. Logical. That's all gone in CS6 ... so, to lay down a voiceover file for Comcast or any client, in waveform view (vs. Multitrack which is not necessary for single mono file editing) I have to go through unnecessary steps simple to select insert/mix paste>file>paste into existing wave form.
Also, if I need to simply overlap a gasp over the last syllable of a phrase in a simple wave form, I don't appear to be able to do this. I called Adobe for support on these function, but, they had not answers and simple said I couldn't change the workspace, and they had no other answers. Any help would be greatly appreciated if you have insight.
