    How to mix Exporting Tracks another DAW using Audacity?

    I want to export individual tracks to be mixed a project in another DAW for someone else. I have been asked to send the files. Wav of individual tracks have many of the tracks start half way between the songs but I donít know where to fit the patches. For this I have searched the forum and the only idea I have is to insert silence or export in any way, so the silence is added since the beginning of each track. However, I have not been able to find a way to do this. When I add the silence, or copy paste, the existing road is being driven.

    You seem to have the general idea of what to do.
    Here is a quick way to accomplish this:

    • Ctrl + A (Select All)
    • Home key (cursor at the beginning)
    • Generate menu> Silence and select a second (insert a second of silence)
    • File Menu> Export and select multiple "split files based on the tracks"
    • Edit: forgot to mention - to keep the metadata editor to appear between each track exported, go to "Edit> Preferences> Import / Export" and tick-free "show metadata editor."

    All tracks are increasingly exported doing what it suggests. However, from what I understand is that you have to work correctly when you import in another DAW, the length of each track must be at least "the length of the interval + music played before the start time anywhere." What you will get is a single track the exact duration of current fill in. I hope is clear from the description.

    There were some difficulties published in Audacity 1.3 with the system refusing to precisely position a few time points slider just a little one way or another. This may be a branch of that. I do not know that there is a solution, but is high on the list of work to be fixed. The only thing is that a couple of tracks (2 of 20) were a bit off in time. You can open projects 1.2 to 1.3 but not vice versa. You can have both versions installed at the same time, but keep in mind that Audacity 1.2.x can not open projects that have been saved by Audacity 1.3.x.

    There here was a problem with the length of exported tracks in Audacity 1.3.10, but has been corrected.
    To my knowledge, the current version of Audacity should export the tracks correctly as long as they all start at time = 0. If the songs play in tune with Audacity, and all the tracks start at time = 0, then it must be right in another DAW. My suggestion is to carefully review these two conditions are met.

    It's pretty simple. Just follow the steps recommended:

    1. Set marker left of the bar 1.
    2. Set bookmark right end of the song.
    3. Turn off all effects in the mixer, or down to '0 'level.
    4. Solo track to export. Only in the sequencer track instead of the mixer.
    5. 'File', click> 'loop as an audio file export
    6. Choose option 'Wave Ratio "or" audio MFI ratio depending on the format of the mixer requires.
    7. Click "Save"
    8. Repeat for each track

    Doing this from memory, they do not have FL in front of me, but the process is usually:

    1. Divide each instrument / sound in your own channel mixer
    2. The name of each channel audio mixer that everyone is feeding
    3. Put the file in SONG mode (non loop mode)
    4. Delete all regions set out in the playlist
    5. On the File menu select Export
    6. Export as WAV, 32 bit - to ensure you select split tracks MIXER
    7. I know FL does not export 24-bit
    8. Base file name (I usually go with "_.wav")
    9. FL export, divide the total length and all the names of the tracks then _drums.wav, _bass.wav, etc.


    You will also receive a summary track 2 with the split files.
