Sorry for the long topic.

I will try my best to explain this as good as I can. I'm new at this.

I have gotten myself WaveLab 6 and I just recorded my first show ever with my Edirol R-09HR

I recorded it in 24 bit 96 kHz and the show was 1h 20 min long.

R9_001.wav = 2 gb
R9_002.wav = 600 mb

I mounted those in Wavelab and Peak Mastered it.

And now to the question:

Since it's now one big wave file, I need to split them up in tracks. So one track per wave-file.
Is it possible to mark out some guidelines in Wavelab where a track / file should begin, and after when you have marked the beginning of all tracks you can kind of choose "Save all" and the tracks will be saved down to a choosen location as 001.wav 002.wav 003.wav and so on ... kind of.

I hope anyone could help me :)

If it's not possible to do this.. how do you guys do?

you can track with wavelab but I and 99% of pc folks use cdwave.  it's simple and cuts on sector boundary's.

just open the wavefile in it and then it's pretty self explanatory.  hit the "split" button where you want the tracks.

I see it's 24/96 so when you save in cdwave be sure to save as 24 bit alternative (there's a button to check).  then save the cue sheet so when you dither and resample you don't have to retrack the 16/44 file.

Wow. Very nice program indeed.

How do you guys usually split your tracks?

Do you include the 3-4 drum beats in the beginning of the track when the band is about to play a song, or do you leave those beats at the end of the track before?

Do it the way you like to.

For me it depends. Usually I will keep those at the beginning of the track unless someone is yelling.

I use WaveLab for it, here is a quick instruction how to do it:

  • Click "View" -> "Control Bar", go sure "Marker Toolbar" is checked. Find the Marker Toolbar:
  • Position the cursor at the gap between two songs. Use the slider at the bottom right of the screen to zoom in.
  • Click the "new marker" icon, the leftmost one in the toolbar.
  • Select "CD Track Splice" as Type, go sure "Automatic naming" is checked and click OK.
  • Repeat for all Tracks.
  • Go sure that WaveLab placed "CD Track Start" and "CD Track End" markers at the beginning and end of the file, do so yourself if not. (They should be there, but it happened to me once that they weren't.)
  • Click "File -> New -> Basic Audio CD". It will open a blank window.
  • While both the CD project and the wave file are not maximized, drag the magenta dot from the wave file window into the CD project.
  • Click "CD -> Save each track as seperate audio file..."
  • Uncheck both checkboxes, select destination folder, and select output format (you will probably want Wave, 44100khz, 16 bit. Use external tools to convert to FLAC/MP3/OGG or whatever you want later.)
  • Click OK and let it run, it will take a little while (status at the bottom right is per track, not for the entire project).
  • Enjoy! ;D

This is for WaveLab 5, dont know about other versions.

After tracking it in wavelab I use Tools > Autosplit >
Wave in active window >  Next > Split according to makers >
Next > CD Track Markers > Next > Save as separate files >
Specify your path > Next > Next > Choose your naming
convention > Process.

Looks like a lot typed out but takes a few seconds to run
through all that.  When flacing them up I'll use the align
on sector boundaries option.

Yeah, the autosplit function will essentially do exactly the same thing. :) My version is not any more clicks either. Yay for redundancy.

Though my version will also work with a not yet saved file, though normally you wouldnt need that anyway.
