Import multiple clips into 1 audio track?

Recommended Posts

How to select 40 audio clips (from desktop)  and have them line up in 1 audio track with out dragging  one at a time?

Do this:

  • Create your audio track
  • Open up the take lanes (this will create one take lane)
  • Drag all of the files to the take lane

This will put each clip in a separate lane within the same track.

To make it a single clip:

  • Select all the lanes
  • Right click one of the clips, and select "Bounce to Clip(s)"

You may want to adjust the overall clip gain level after doing this, and Bounce to Clip(s) again.

@scook there is also a feature called "Flatten Comp" which creates a new take lane composed of all the other (comped) takes and then solos it (in take lane, not track). the take shows an "unlock" icon which indicates the "clip data" is locked -  it's not (apparently) a destructive operation as the takes are in one WAV file and the new one is in another WAV file.

Thanks but why are you telling me about this?

What defines the order / timeline position of these clips that are drag-dropped in one go? The order in which they've been selected?  Unless they are Broadcast waves with a time stamp. Or do you have to move them oe by one after dragging?

If you are dragging files its the order in which they appear in the selected file list.
BTW if you drag multiple files into a lane it will auto insert in subsequent lanes and create new lanes as needed.
I dont think there is a way to put the files back to back today.
