Every time I try to apply a chain to a list of files, I see the files open and the effects being applied, and then – poof. I am left with one blank audacity interface with no tracks.
For example, if I have a chain that involves amplifying and adding echo, and I use Apply chain > Apply to files to apply this chain to Track1, Track2, and Track3, I see the following:
Track1 opens, the waveform shows the amplification and echo being applied, then the track disappears; Then similarly for Track2 and Track3. After the chain has finished I am left with an empty Audacity interface with the name ‘Track3’ on the top bar, but no tracks. View > History reveals only one action: ‘remove tracks’.
This happens no matter what chain I construct, if I use ‘Apply to files’. BUT if I ‘Apply to Current Project’ it works fine (tracks don’t disappear).
Any ideas what is going on? Your help would be much appreciated
