I want to be able to trim audio in the arrange window wherein the trimmed pieces are permanently deleted.
I’m digitizing about 15 years worth of board tapes recorded on cassettes. After I set a nominal level I want to press record and let 'er rip, so to speak, with only the occasional look see till the cassette stops. If I can’t stop recording immediately after the cassette stops I want to be able to quickly trim the tail destructively, save, and move on to the next tape.
At the moment, it appears the only way to do this is to trim the audio, export to mixdown, remove the original audio track from the arrange window, open the pool, move the original file to the trash, then go to trash and erase the original file. Under other circumstances these steps are quick to execute but when dealing with this much material it becomes time consuming.
I’ve double checked for a preference that addresses this and looked through the manual but can’t find anything regarding destructive editing. If anyone can point me to a place in the manual that covers destructive edits such as I’ve described I’m all for reading it myself, I just can’t seem to find it.
Thanks in advance for any help.
