Have recorded an old vinyl.
Have no problem using “export audio”
Have labeled the separate tracks, and try to use “export multiple” but I am stuck at “edit metadata”.
When I hit “OK” in “edit metadata” nothing happens. And when I hit “cancel” I get the “Export canceled…” message.
Seems like I am missing some step, any suggestions ?
It’s easier if you disable the Metadata pop-up. To do so, disable it in “Edit > Preferences > Import/Export”.
If you need Metadata tags for the exported files, it is probably easier to add them later using either your media player application, or a dedicated “tagger” (such as “MP3Tag”).
It’s easier if you disable the Metadata pop-up.
It is not only easier, it was impossible with the Metadata pop-up.
May I suggest that in the next version in this excellent program simply disable the Metadata pop-up when using “export multiple”.
I always think it would be better if, by default, the Metadata editor was turned off. It’s easy enough to turn it on again in Preferences>Import/Export if you want or need to manage metadata in Audacity.
Personally I’ve always found it much easier to manage metadata outside of Audacity so I always have that metadata option un-checked in Preferences.
