I need to do some work across 40 projects where I export an individual audio track as stereo to mono downmix. I then need to normalize the resulting mono track, which will be imported into a different project.
What I’ve found is that the resulting mono file is not normalized when I view it outside the original project, so I’m assuming normalize is non-destructive. In general, that’s pretty cool. In this case, however, it works against me.
Additionally, I’d like to set up a macro that allows me to select a given track and perform these operations on it. Currently, I have to select the source audio file in the export dialog itself, as well as manually naming the resulting mono file. I’m not sure if it’s possible to do an export where the dialog is aware of the currently highlighted track, but if so it would certainly speed things up. All told there’s over 100 tracks across 40 projects, so doing it all manually is going to be pretty labor intensive.
Would be grateful for any suggestions, both in terms of creating a macro for this process as well as whether or not it’s possible to generate a file that is physically normalized rather than virtuallyy within the given project.
