I hope I didn’t miss it in the documentation,
A feature I used back in the Soundforge era was adding a Marker to .WAV file.
Why? in embedded software applications, wav files are played and when the marker comes up, it isn’t ‘heard audibly’ but is read by the playing software to trigger events in the code. Events such as syncing lights or motors to parts of a song for example.
Not sure how they did it, but it was a useful feature that I would like to see in Audacity.
oh, and effects used to default to applying to an entire file without selection. I miss that. Like Normalize for example. I always forget to select all the audio, and always get the warning, then have to go get my hands on the keyboard and make the cntrl+A selection. That’s an extra step I would like to avoid. Maybe in a setting?
I would like to add another vote for this feature. I have used markers extensively for archival purposes and they were a great help back when I used Adobe Audition. I think there should be a checkbox/combobox in the Export WAV dialog to select a label track for conversion to cue point metadata.
