Scheduling Audacity events?

Post by GarySutcliff » Sat Jan 13, 2018 6:42 am

Is there any way to start and stop recording in Audacity by schedules events.
I would like to record 15 one-hour tracks on Saturdays and again on Sundays.
Right now, I end up with one 15-hour track for each day.

Audacity has "Timer Record", but it is only a "one event" timer: http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/timer_record.html

1)Record the 15 hours
2) Place a label at every hour
3)File Export>Export Multiple

This will give you 15 one hour files
