Ubuntu 12.04, Audacity 2.0.0, distribution install
I am wondering whether it’s possible to change the color of certain tracks. I think it would be easier to keep everything organized if you could color, say, both rhythm guitar tracks green, each back-up vocal track red, etc.
It’s obviously possible and there is an unapproved patch to do it if you can recompile Audacity yourself: http://audacity.238276.n2.nabble.com/PATCH-Clip-Colours-td7560793.html#a7560796 . Compiling Audacity is fairly easy on Ubuntu. See: http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/CompilingAudacityForBeginners#simple .
If you address the concerns that the developers had about the patch, feel free to post your modified patch to that -devel list topic.
