HP Pavilion notebook, Win7 64, Audacity 2.1.3
I’ve been meaning to come here for months, please forgive
my resulting dam burst!
Adding to Labeling Tracks bombs recording:
While I’m recording lectures etc, I often take notes in the label track, to save listen-time for
later clean-up, etc.
But most times that causes the recording to stop with NO WARNING, often un-noticed for awhile.
Many key combos seemingly cause this, for example, starting a new note with a space. (I think.)
I thought I could avoid this by learning, but no, it’s been six? months, no help.
Most times I have no idea which key combo caused it.
Seemingly, besides the unwanted STOP, I think it also often changes modes, such as into
time-shift tool, and other unpredictable stuff.
If that cant be fixed, a loud BEEP or screen-flash warning when it jumps out
would be better than nothing…I could restart recording much sooner.
Minor problem 1:
Also, that is the only text text editor I’ve ever used that does not use the standard keyboard shortcuts, such as shift-del to cut, and shift-insert to paste. (This editor has it.)
The dropdown copy, cut, paste menu is 30 times slower.
Minor problem 2: Sometimes I have to delay editing, and a project will
accumulate 8 - 15 tracks and I’ll save it. But counting tracks is a guessing game,
I lose my place while scrolling. An auto-numbering in track name would
be way cool!
Minor problem 3: There is no way to save a single track’s labels, they all
save into a single file, with no easy way to differentiate between tracks
other than reading the times. (And sometimes the start times seem wrong?)
A blank line between tracks would be a big help.
(I sometimes paste my label notes into the MP3’s comments as an index,
or a side file.)
Minor problem 4: After the above unwanted STOP, in panic mode, I’ll restart
the lecture as another track, again taking notes. I have found no way to later copy
part 2 along with those notes to paste onto the end of the truncated track.
I forget if pasting a label track portion is impossible, or I just too difficult.
I get warnings like; You cant paste one type track into another. I know that, WTF?
A cool Bell/Whistle: If I could save the label track into the Mp3
(or a file) at the same time as I create/export the Mp3!
I think everyone would use that almost every time if
it was that easy!
Sample 2 saved label notes:
2334.627120 2334.627120 Soul in Hell
3252.279728 3252.279728 END
…I wonder if those seconds could be converted
into more human timekeeping?
Sorry for writing a frigging novel!
Thanks for considering!
