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 OK, just wondering…
Steve who works on this forum is in the process of developing a new plug-in called Album Track Marker (working title) this may help you, I have been testing this for him. He may be prepared to send you a Beta copy.
While this feature would be nice, I did find a workaround that works fine… Track listing import/export. I finally tried it out and it works well. I can export, copy to excel, update the Track Names in Excel easily, and copy-paste back into the text file, and re-import into Audacity into a new track. So it takes 1 minute, no biggie, and it’s flexible. So, nice job with the import/export feature.
No it doesn’t. But my “Sound Finder” has all the bells and whistles, including custom label names and label numbering.
The (simple) “Album Track Marker” produces empty labels, so if the user wants to number them manually they can just tab across into each one and enter the number (or other text) and they don’t need to delete an “S”.
Both “Silence Finder” and “Sound Finder” are being reviewed and rewritten, but your request (as it stands) is very straightforward, so here is a modified version of Silence Finder for you to try. Just copy it into the Audacity plug-ins folder, then restart Audacity. (see here for details: Missing features - Audacity Support) The plug-in will appear in the Analyze menu and is called “Silence Finder-N…” (“N” for “numbered”). SilenceMarkerNumbered.ny (4.51 KB)
