Save Compressed Project - could we have a lossless option?

Post by Breakfast » Thu Jun 22, 2017 3:12 pm

The " Save Compressed Copy of Project" option is really useful but it would be good to be able to export the tracks as .flac too - it would still make for a smaller project but we would not lose any sound quality, useful if one is looking at sharing files with collaborators.

Audacity already exports FLAC.

FLAC is lossless.

Might you be referring to Save Compressed Copy of Project?

Yes apologies, that is exactly what I was referring to, I'll see if I can adjust the title.
