Hi, I'm not sure if there is another way of doing what I am doing but if there is please tell me! ... If theres not then this should be a valid enhancement request for a future release ... This is what I am currently doing to create samples: Working in Multi-track view I am making a selction accross tasks and then when I am happy I write down the begin and end of my selection. For a 5 minute piece thats alot of writing down! ..(I have 50 or so numbers) .. I then switch to edit mode for each of the tracks that I want. I then punch in the numbers to make my selection and use the save slection option to save the sample to my folder typing the numbers into my filenames so I can keep track! ... In order to get the samples I want from a typical 5 minute piece it can take me days and is very soul destroying! ... So .. to my enhancement request .. once the selection is made in multitrack view it shoud be possible to save all selections as seperate samples using a file naming convention made up of the track name and the begin and end numbers... QED ...This would be brilliant! .....menawhile, back to the slog until someone puts me out of my misery! ...alan
Alan [good name],
You could try selecting your range (maybe place markers at each end),
then File | Export | Audio Mix Down.
Choose TRACK as your source and SELECTION as your range.
Each track (and the master) will be mixed down and saved as separate files.
Rather than renaming all the files, consider putting them
into a new folder - which you can name appropriately.
Of course, using this method all effects, levels, etc. are
applied before saving.
I agree that a more direct approach is desirable,
but if you can live with mixed down files, this will help.
Thanks Al, It certainly does help.. what was taking me days is now taking me a few hours ..
