(In response to a conversation on another thread about the subject)
Would it be possible to have an easy macro to transfer embedded lyric data and timing from an SMF to an audio recording of the SMF? It would probably need an offset field for audio recordings not trimmed to the EXACT start time of the SMF (an auto detect might be nice!), but other than that, a basic one-step process to copy everything fairly hands free?
Super... I expect the release notes will say when fixed?
Meanwhile, any thoughts about an automated ‘first note’ detect? I am guessing this might involve new code to detect audio levels above the noise floor so that the time of the first note can be detected in the audio version and compared to the SMF’s, so I realize it’s not a simple feature, but probably the main objection I hear towards having audio backups of SMF’s in case a VSTi gets unsupported in future OS’s, or a better one becomes available but their laptop can’t run it well is the sheer numbers of files they have to convert their entire collections.
Any way to automate the process would go a long way to easing migration away from legacy soundsets...
