So I lost the raw file, only have tracked copy, is there a way to ditch the tracking so I can reprocess in Audacity?

Thanks!

I use Foobar to do this. Looks like this site shows you how to do it in Foobar and Audacity.

I use SHNTOOLs "join" command to do this...

In case you could use it afterward, I use CueTools to generate a cue sheet out of the previous tracking, so I don't have to retrack the single file later.
Detailed in https://superuser.com/questions/432074/how-can-i-make-a-flaccue-from-multiple-flac-files
http://cue.tools/wiki/CUETools_Download

There are some limitations to this:
If your tracked files have SBEs, CueTools will pad them when creating the single file, causing clicks between tracks. That won't happen when joining with shntool/Foobar/etc. so I just keep the cue file that CueTools generates, and delete the single track that it makes. (I always use CDWave so I don't have this problem for my own shows, but I get tracked files with SBEs from friends with Macs, and then I have to do this longer process.)
CueTools will only make the cue sheet from CD compliant files, so if the tracked FLACs aren't in that format, I have to downsample them to create the cue sheet.

Audacity user here. Had same issue with a Toots at the Catalist '89 recording I'd lost but got back through distributed backup sharing. This method maintains your track labels for exporting tracks post-mastering.

1. Start a new project.
2. Import all the tracks.
3. Select all tracks.
4. Tracks:align:end to end
5. Add a label track.
6. Drop a label at the beginning of each track.
7. Select all tracks
8. mix:mix and render to new track
9. make sure new track is ok
10. delete imported tracks
11. let the wild rumpus begin.
