Audacity remembers a list of recently used profiles. Click the down arrow on the right hand end of the "Command" input.

Although not an official feature, it is possible to manually edit Audacity's configuration file "audacity.cfg".
(If this makes no sense to you, just ignore it and just use the format options in the user interface.)
Example:

Code: Select all

[FileFormats/ExternalProgramHistory]
file01=ffmpeg -i - "%f"
file02=lame - "%f"
file03=lame - -b128 "%f"
file04=lame - -b64 -mm "%f"

and at this point your luck runs out ;) No, not available in Chains.
Probably the best available solution for this, is to export from Audacity as WAV, and then use one of the many standalone batch converters that are available (there are several good, free, batch converters).
