Please provide a simple way to split one long mp3 audio file into separate tracks/files.

I can currently use Audacity to split a 60 minute mp3 into separate mp3 files. I could do that in under 15 minutes. I have spent the last 3 hours attempting this using ADR 6. It is absolutely crazy that I must load the full file, delete everything that is not the first track and Produce. Reload the full file, delete everything that is not in the second track and product it. Repeat for the rest of the tracks.

ADR has lots of power, but for me it is nearly useless as splitting a file into tracks is mostly what I do. I'm going back to using Audacity until this feature is added to ADR.

Hello Brian,

There are some quick & simple ways to do that in ADR.

I've posted some image guides here - http://forum.cyberlink.com/forum/posts/list/24693.page#261684

Hi Pix,

Your images show how to split the big mp3. It is the next step that I have yet to find. How do I save each track as its own mp3 file?

I tried moving each split to its own track in waterfall form. Produce still made one big MP3 file.

I tried moving each split to its own track all starting together. That really didn't work. The tracks played on top of each other in the resulting big mp3.

Is the answer that for each track in Ecit and produce that? When I tried that I got one big mp3 of the whole audio and then ADR crashed and burned. I sent the crash info to tech support.

Hi Shaoling, miksh7,

v7 adds what you want (although it is not mentioned in the product page...), you may get the free trial to check

Well spotted and reported the King!

In AudioDirector 7, most adjustments under Edit > Apply Effect can be saved as custom presets

""

Essentially, whenever you see the Advanced settings icon (gear) your adjustments can be saved for future application.

I would like to be able to save the complete set of audio effects I have used in a project so that I can retrieve the set later and apply it to other audio files.

Perhaps being able to save, as a preset, ALL of the settings I just made on an audio file.

Hi. My little list...


  1. Audio Scrubbing (and this applies to PowerDirector as well).

  2. Better control for animating Surround Panning (by means of dedicated per chanel keyframable envelopes, just like in currently implemented stereo case?).


Well, greetings and hope it helps.

It is good that we can separate a particular portion from a sound track. Thanks for giving this download links for us.

How about ASIO support? As it is, I can't use audio director at all (or voice overdub in PD) as without ASIO, AD cannot see any of mic or line ins (4 x line in, 2 x mic with phantom power) on my interface. At the moment, I do all my audio work in my DAW (Reaper) and sync it up later. But it would be nice to do some stuff directly in AD or PD.

... actually lots of suggestions:


  1. STABILITY!! Really save the key frame positions. After reloading a large project nearly always the key frames are destroyed (see attached images). With a project of 6 Hours of Work this is NOT acceptable!!!

  2. better control of mouse zoom, and panning / scrolling, like e.g. Audacity: Ctrl+wheel zooms time scale, Shift+wheel for panning, maybe Alt+Wheel zooms amplitude.

  3. Fast way to mute all tracks except the one clicked (solo function) for quick swit.ching to check synchronicity of two tracks.

  4. precise volume fading eg. from 0db to -20db (text edit position of key frames).



I (want to) use AudioDirector to synchronize two tracks:

  1. the audio track on a video containing music and stage sounds

  2. the original music on "tape" (mp3).



As both audio tracks (usually) have different sampling rates, I never had the chance to try the automatic audio sync function.
I have to sync them optically to less than 7ms, especially if the music contains singing to minimize echo.
For each song the audio track of the video is muted by approx. 20db and the music is faded in. At the end of each song, the music is faded out and the stage sound faded to 0db.
This usually leads to volume curves that are nearly rectangular wave forms.
After reloading the project because of a crash of Audio Director the volume curve was changed to look like the attached images.
Because of the missing "vertical" (volume) zoom, it's impossible to pick the key frames than went out at the top, so I have to reset ALL key frames and rebuild the entire project.
This can not be the meaning of "saving" a project!! yell
Even during the editing process the key frames sometimes start to "float" (see third attached screen shot) after zoom or panning and the volume positions are lost (see same screen shot at minute 29: the volume of music tracks 6 and 7 had a form similar to the others before zooming out).

... looking at it, this post is more a complaint than a wish list.
Well, take the first 4 suggestions as a wish list, I guess, I'll post this to support as well.

BTW: I'm using Audio Director 7.0.8903.0, latest update installed shortly before I started working on this project.

Greetings,
Lutz Kutscher
