The use is in recording a podcast. I want the file to be split to speed up the editing process - in edting I can easily find all the cuts and edit from there.
Markers don’t make cuts so aren’t as efficient.
It’s the equivalent of hitting ** [record record] but I don’t want any gaps - I’m often simul recording remotely and I don’t want it to get out of sync later on
You could (I think without checking) create a Project Logical Editor to Split the Audio at the Markers.
You’re never going to get it to create a new file without the Transport stopping at least for a few moments to create the new file.
If you are adamant about not using Markers (which seems like the easiest approach to me) then Martin’s suggestion is worth a try, make sure the cursor isn’t set to return to the start upon stopping playback.
I am curious to try this. What’s the command called in Audacity?
Edit: Is this a well-hidden command? I’m familiar with Audacity, but could not find this in the menus, including the Extras menu.
The obvious command would be Split, which is greyed out during recording.
This Macro can do the basic task but not reliably. I think it’s a timing thing and some ‘pauses’ should be added to slow it down. If I execute these 2 commands manually (aka slow human speed) it always works.
