I am not sure of your workflow, nor familiar with SWS or xenakios, so this may not be relevent.

I suspect people (mainly MixPre users) use Waveagent to split their polywav because they don't know about Reaper's explode item, or aren't using Reaper. Also, Waveagent does not work with 32bit-float. I work 24 bit, and do both methods, but Reaper's explode item is quick and easy. It also appears to duplicate the audio data for each exploded track of the polywav, and in the case of Mac, seems to throw the files into my Documents folder. I move them to the root Reaper folder of my project, so everything is together when I copy the folder for archiving or working from another machine.

Once exploded, all of the polywav tracks are separate (subtracks?) and I mix like any multitrack project. If I recorded L/R mix in the polywav (1-2), I just mute or delete them as I usually don't need them in a remix.

Thanks!

My big takeaway is that maybe I don't have to make stereo tracks after all; I'm just used to them.

Explode, edit, mix, master may be the workflow to go with.

For the stuff I do on my MixPre10s, I don't bother to combine stereo tracks after exploding, I just pan them hard L/R and use Reaper's track grouping for that pair, and I only group volume, mute and solo. One reason to make it 1 stereo track would be to make it easier to do an automation envelope - half the work as doing 2 separate tracks.

Also, on my stuff, I just prefer to edit the stereo mixdown.

Hey all, sorry to dig up an old thread, but I figured I would post here as to not create another one. I looked around a bit and was wondering, I just changed over to mac from pc. My normal old post routine was audacity>Cdwav. It appears to me that cd wav will not run on mac? I know my way around audacity pretty well at this point, so I think I would like to stick with it for the front, but is there anything as good as cd wav in the mac world for splitting tracks? Free ideally, or if I am going to spend some money, not a lot. Is there something that would take me start to finish in one app. Coming in at 32/48 at going out at flac 8? I see a lot of people use reaper? Can the whole deal be done right in there? If this has been discussed at length and you can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. Thanks!

Amazing splitting and batch processing, among other things.

Apple come with an early gift.

Far down in the release notes for Logic 10.7.5 they reveal it…

Logic Pro now supports 32-bit floating point audio files natively.

sort of off topic but i am having trouble finding an equivalent for doing just tracking splitting like I do with my home PC in CD Wave. I had done it in the past when traveling and using my mac laptop but I can't recall what program I used. However I remember being concerned about SBEs and in Audacity I could just never get it to work so I gave up.

does a simple program exist that works like this or should I just stick to PC or use my Mac and just dual boot login to Windows 10 to run CD Wave?

Audacity works if you make it snap to nearest CDDA frame.
XAct can fix file sets.

M2 update:

I have a new M2 mini, entry level SOC 24GB RAM, 2TB SSD.
RX-9 music rebalance for a 2.25 hour 24/48 wav used to take about 6-7 hours on Intel mini, on M2 takes around 40 minutes.
Istat menus indicates process uses about 9GB memory and hammers the efficiency and performance cores.

Great upgrade, the 24GB is future-proofing, not really needed now. To speed up audio processing, I'd consider upgrading SOC next time.
