Here’s what I’d like to do:
- Open soundclip1.wav
- Pitch shift the audio (not touching the duration), and export it as soundclip2.wav (and 3,4,etc.)
- Re-open soundclip1.wav, split and isolate a bunch of segments, and save the project
- Export the clips (via Export Multiple)
- REPLACE soundclip1.wav with soundclip2.wav, basically using the new audio source but keeping my current clip selections
- Export the same clips but with the new, pitch-shifted audio
Is step #5 possible? Can you replace the base audio, keeping the clip timing intact?
No, but you could add a label track, and label each clip, then after you’ve replaced the audio track, split it based on the labels.
See these pages of the manual:
Thanks for the reply! Do I understand correctly that the best approach is to have a single project with all the pitch variation tracks stacked, then add a single label track where I set all my ins and outs, and solo each audio track for each export?
