I use Traverso to arrange a whole radio program with 2 or 3 tracks. There are jingles, music, openers, credits, presentations,  interviews with translated overvoice etc.
But when I cut out slips of the tongue or unnice breaths in Traverso, the clip gets too dismembered.
Maybe with an internal merge-function (also for a selected region?) in a future version, this task can be done.

I hope you got my case, because my english is not so perfect.

Thank You

P.S. it's not that urgent, to discuss it on irc :-)

Ah, so the basic problem is that you can't 'join' the slices into one clip in Traverso, right ?

The next version will (most likely...) have a 'bounce' track, with which is will be very easy to render the sliced clips into one new clip.

Future versions of Traverso will have a clip-join feature.
For now, the only solution is to open the audiofile you want to edit by looking it up in the projects directory sources dir, and import it after you're finished editing it in an external editor.

But maybe I didn't get your use case completely ?

I actually wonder, if you would edit the audio file in an external editor, what do you need Traverso for ?

Best wishes,

I know about the posibility to do it within traverso. My problem is, that I have to do many smal cuts. After that I get many smal sliced clips. I can group tham after or merge them to a new combined clip. So it would be easier to edit the recording in a destructive wave editor and do the arrangement within traverso.

And thanks for the feature request. I think I understand your feature request, but wouldn't it be easier/better to have this functionality available in Traverso itself?

Right now you can cut clips, and remove parts of it where the remaining pieces do a 'magnetic snap'

The function for that is [ R ]
So keep the R key pressed, and move the mouse so that the blue region covers the part you want to be erased.

Please let us know what kind of feature you need so we can see if it is possible to make that in Traverso.

At the same time we can look into how editing clips in Traverso can be done by external programs, and how we can best expose this to the user. Suggestions for this are welcome of course!

I would like the possibility to edit a clip in an external linear editor like sweep to make some fine cuts. I'm working mostely with speech for radio productions and have to cut aut many small mistakes recorded speaker sometimes makes, like too long pauses, coughs, a repeated word or sentense ...
That is not possible by splitting a clip within traverso.
