I hope someone out there can help.I created a project with four tracks
(three instrumental, one vocal). Now, I should have saved it as =
else before performing the next action, but I didn't. My intention was =
lower the pitch of the instrumental tracks by a full tone.I selected the
three instrumental tracks, and invoked the command to change the pitch. =
chugged along for a while.then froze. I had to abort the program.
Here's the kicker: when I opened my file again, it reported an error
(couldn't find file blah.details revealed that it couldn't find any of =
files it uses to create the three instrumental tracks), and the gui then
displayed the three instrumental tracks as flatliners, and the vocal =
is fine. Now, if I look in the data file, I see many, many files.and if =
drag them individually to the audacity window, they turn out to be =
the instrumental tracks at the original pitch (I assume Audacity divides =
tracks into consumable chunks and assembles them on the fly when editing =
So has the main file simply rewritten the links to the sound files? It =
possible/likely that during the conversion the program went as far as
reassigning the links in the main file to the names it was intending for =
converted files, but the conversion crashed midway, so the files weren't
converted but the references to them in the main file were changed.
.if that's the case, is there some magic way to restore the links? =

Is this what you want?
