I sometimes come back to a project after some time and wonder exactly where I was up to. A Menu > File > Notes would be wonderful. I checked the pending feature requests on the wiki and didn’t find anything like this; the nearest is “Log of changes: I’m wondering if anyone has created a sort of ‘log viewer’ of changes” which is not what I have in mind. I’m thinking notes like:
editVoice1: performed EQ, mouth clicks
editVoice2: performed EQ, mouth clicks, timing
bgVoice2: background sound effects for voice2
mergeVoice2: voice2 + bg: auto duck -12dB 0.1 sec in/out.
That would help me know that I need to check timing on voice1 before processing it.
Thanks guys! Phil
When I’m working with Audacity projects, I generally create a folder before I start, and put everything relating to that project in the folder. I then launch Audacity and immediately save the new (still empty at this point) project into the folder.
This has a number of benefits:
- It makes it easy to find everything relating to the project.
- It avoids the risk of accidentally deleting something that is important to the project.
- It avoids accidentally separating the AUP file from its “_data” folder (which would destroy the project and lose my work)
I can easily keep notes relating to the project with the project.
The final item being relevant to your enquiry - I just use a text editor to write notes and save as a .txt file.
