Export Audio Mixdown - Post Process
In the default installation of Cubase the Export Audio Mixdown provides a Post Process facility to Upload to SoundCloud.
For my work flow I would prefer to open the folder containing the file I have just exported.
I did add this to the feature request forum, however it could be ages before such a facility might be provided.
Looking in the C:\ProgramData\Steinberg\Audio Export Post Process Scripts folder the UploadToSoundCloud.aepp script can be found.
Actually this is just an xml file
There are a couple of interesting Tags called also and which means it is possible to customize the Post Process
The tag is basically a pointer to another xml containing details of the exported file (C:\Users\YOUR-NAME\AppData\Local\Temp\audioExportDescription.xml)
Luckily this file contains a tag containing the full path to the file just exported. This is all the data I need.
I wrote a simple application to read these xml file, and open the folder
If it is of any use to others I have made the files available here
CbOpenFolder.zip (8.51 KB)
Place the following three files in the C:\ProgramData\Steinberg\Audio Export Post Process Scripts (You may need to modify the .aepp file if you have installed to a different folder: just use notepad.exe or similar.)
Open Folder.aepp – xml Process Scripts
Folder.png – icon
CbOpenFolder.exe – App to open the folder
Unfortunately for you Mac users I am a windows user, maybe some other user can provide a mac version
