Is there a quick way to transfer the info shown in my screen shot from one montage to another?
Basically, I still assemble my main montage at 44.1k with 44.1k files, even if I capture each song at higher sample rates because I like to use iZotope SRC for the sample rate conversion to 44.1k, I like to do any sample rate conversion before the final limiter, and I don’t want to have Crystal Resampler running live on DDP or file renders. So I always assemble a montage at the desired end sample rate.
Anyway, when I need to recreate a montage higher than 44.1k for a vinyl pre-master, or if a client wants higher than 44.1k digital masters (if higher sample rate exists) for bandcamp or Mastered For iTunes then I have to do a lot of manual work to recreate the montage at higher sample rate because the track ID markers and other things are tied to the samples of the montage rather than absolute time. I have found a slow workaround but demand for 44.1k and native sample rate versions is increasing and I don’t want to convert after final limiting or run Crystal Resampler live.
Doing Save As… and converting the sample rate of a montage isn’t hard, and I’m used to doing “replace audio file…” for each clip and pointing Wavelab to the high sample rate version so that isn’t a big problem (although it could be faster with Wavelab enhancements).
The thing that takes the most time is redoing the clip placement times (and track IDs which follow clips if you do it right) as shown in the attachment. I have to enter all the clip start/end and pre-gap times manually and the numerical entry isn’t very smooth on OSX, the cursor seems to jump around a bit if you’re too slow and you can’t copy and paste the entire times. If I could easily copy and paste each full time, or a row of times (all the possible times for a clip) it would be a huge help.
I wonder if there is a faster solution for now…
