It would be suuuuch a time saver if there was a feature that could take a selection, find all audio within that selection that is dead silent (no value at all), and delete that audio.
This mostly would help me when I’m importing large 200+ track projects, where I’m cleaning everything up and a third of the files are actually just silence. Some tracks will have a blip of something here or there, or are reverb sends with almost nothing, yet are important to keep… so you not only have to go through and delete all these tracks, but you have you be really careful so that you don’t delete tracks that just look silent but actually do contain some data.
Even if all the tracks had something on them, this would help keep me visually organized so that I can see which tracks are actually being used at any given time.
I don’t know if this feature exists in any DAW yet, but it would be really really cool!
