Open Project.aup works but "stacks" all tracks on top of each other.
Maybe that's what the project was like when you saved it.
What is the project and what do you want to do with it?

Re: Seamlessly joining pre-edited voice recordings / audio book type material

If they are encoded with LAME and if they do have the "gapless" tag, then you should be able to import them into "Audacity 3.0.3" with the "padding" trimmed off. Audacity 3.0.3 has not yet been released, but there's a pre-release AppImage available here that you could t...

Re: Seamlessly joining pre-edited voice recordings / audio book type material

There's a problem that MP3 files always have a bit of "padding" at the beginning. This is unavoidable due to a limitation of the MP3 format. The LAME encoder has a clever workaround for this issue, which is that it can add a metadata tag that records the length of the padding, so that apps...

Re: Seamlessly joining pre-edited voice recordings / audio book type material

The publisher (in this case a subsidiary of Universal Music) sees it fit, to release these 30 - 60 minute long episodes cut to pieces of around 90 seconds. Each episode therefore clocks in anywhere between 10 and 30 pieces. I've not come across that. Why do they do that? Is it to "encourage&qu...

Re: "Could not find the project data folder"

The project file named +NR does open, but seems to be linked to a single .wav inside the data file for some reason. That project has been saved from a late 2.x version of Audacity using "Save Lossless Copy of Project" . The "Lossless copy" option renders the audio data as a sing...

Re: Can I export multiple based on "split" splits in Audacity?

Here's the macro in use (recorded in real time):

1. Double click on first clip to select it.
2. "Ctrl + \" (shortcut to macro).
3. Repeat step 2 as necessary.

Re: Can I export multiple based on "split" splits in Audacity?

If you do this often, you could combine "Ctrl + B" then "Alt + ." in a Macro (https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/macros.html), and then assign a keyboard shortcut to the macro (https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/keyboard_preferences.html). I've just tested, using "Ctrl + \...

Re: My voice does not separate from the background music

I couldn't work out if you answered my question: With Audacity's playback device set to computer's sound card, and headphones plugged into the computer, does the background music still get into the vocal track? (I know this will not work in the way that you want it to, but it's just a test to find o...

Re: Audacity crashing on startup, generating debug report

I couldn't open the AUP3 file because I was trying to do so with audacity 2.4.2 :lol: installed 3.0.2 and everything works normally. Thanks for the help! Super, thanks for the update. Re. Nahimic: If I'd known what to look for, I could have found that in the "Audacity.xml" file that you p...
