Hello,

I am trying to clean up a recording of live musical performance that was given to me as seamless individual tracks. I have a session set up that get me the output I need, however I am having trouble exporting the new tracks.

Ideally there would be a way to export by region, but the export by region function seems to only export that audio track output instead of the main output, which is what I need. Is there a way to export session selection, but get ardour easily select a amount equal to a desired region without zooming in all the way?

Thanks

Select the regions you want, right click on them and select Create Multiple Ranges. Then Export range markers to multiple audio files, renaming the ranges first as desired as they will be the file names(You will need to right click on the rulers section and make the ranges ruler visible in order to see the ranges collected).

Side question, where are you working out of curiosity? Not to many theater folks around here.

Thanks so much for the help. As to your question I am currently in grad school in Boston (actually for lighting design), though I still do some sound design when not in school. Since I was in undergrad I have been from Fort Myers, FL, thru DC, and now Boston. You?

Currently I am teaching theatrical sound design in Richmond VA, though that is more filling in for a friend while he is taking a break for medical reasons. I haven't worked to much in theater in the past few years, doing more consulting, freelancing in sound, and working full time at a church now.

hi,
also theater sound and music performer / composer... in production, first show in 3 days :-)
and also trying to export many regions in different tracks as clips (single files), no need to pass thru master bus, but when I select all, I go to region => export selected, it jonly exports the last selected. How to export all 100 in one shot??

If using Ardour for this, you should seperate the SFX/Music you want to export on the timeline, so each SFX/Music is on a different area of the timeline. Then define a range for each SFX via the Range Timeline, and you can Export All Ranges. This is my preferred way to handle this. You can export stems if all you want is individual tracks as well, but it doesn't sound like that is what you want, not sure if you could export stems of just the busses, if for instance you routed all your music through a bus individually each, would have to look into that.
