It would be amazing to have a search track functionality that either scrolls to a track or filters out tracks that don’t match the input.
Use case: I use audacity for exporting hundreds of voice work for individual words for language learning apps. I’ll often need to edit a specific word, and each time I have to scroll to find it. Even with a sort function, it’s still very tedious. Thanks.
Trebor, I wonder if Mike018 is referring to track names, not the audio itself…
MIke018, I’m hoping others might pitch in if it might be possible to do this with nyquist, macros, or mod-script-pipe. I’m looking at Audacity Scripting now; see:
Scripting - Audacity Manual
I see methods to move the focus to the next track, and methods to set the current track name, but it is not immediately obvious how to retrieve the current track name.
Here are some forum posts you might explore for additional ideas/inspiration:
I wonder I’ll be capable to create some macro or script that can insert a label in an existing label track, at its beginning, stamped with its track name.
https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/customizing-label-export/48274/7 in a nyquist prompt, seems to work in audio track only, creating a new label track with the track name at selection.
when trying this in label tracks, it create, both a label in the track stamped “audio track” and a new label track named “Audio track”.
I’m using Silence Finder to split a file into about 170 tracks. All tracks are named “S”.
Is there a way to easily name the track the same as the track #, so that when I export, the exported song name is not “S” but instead the track #?
To work around this, I open up Tracks > Edit Labels and manually type in a name to match the track number, but having to do this each week for 170 tracks is not ideal.
(I do know I can export/import track labels.)
I assume no such feature exists, and that’s …
