I’ve looked around for the answer to this and haven’t found it. Pls forgive if I failed to locate existing info.
Here’s what I want to do. I’ve got sixty 3 hour audio files. I want to edit them to remove the first 14 minutes, then keep the next 4 minutes, then remove another 5 minutes, then keep 10 minutes, etc.
I want this series of edits to be performed on each of the sixty files. Since there are a large number, I don’t want to manually input the same edits over and over. I looked at the documentation for batch processing and for chains, but I have the impression that those won’t quite do what I want to do.
I’m not a programmer, though I’m pretty computer literate and am capable of writing simple scripts and the like (or modifying an existing script to do what I need).
Batch processing has no ability to execute commands on selections.
A Nyquist plug-in could do want you want (I think) but I see nothing suitable.
You could import the files into one project, make the deletions then File > Export Multiple, but how many GB of disk space have you got? Just importing those files would take 108 GB if they were stereo files and you imported them at minimum resolution (16-bit - see the Quality Preferences) .
