Importing from a Minidisc Recorder - Saving Files
After importing an audio segment from a minidisc recorder using Soundtrack Pro, you need to save the audio file on your computer.
Go to the File Menu at the top left and choose Save As.
Name the audio file in the Save As field.
In the Where field, navigate to the folder where you want to save the audio file (we recommend saving the audio files in an Audio folder on your computer or on an external firewire drive).
Finally, click on the Save button at the lower right.
Repeat the previous steps on recording to import from a minidisc recorder the rest of the different sound files you want to use in your audio project.
Save the new audio files in the same folder as your original one. It is very important to save sound files in the same file folder so you and Soundtrack Pro can better keep track of them.
Import from the minidisc recorder only the audio segments you need for your project. Don't import just an entire recorded session from your recorder. it will much easier to keep track of your media and put together your project if you transfer only the audio segments you think you might use.
Once you've imported your audio files, you'll be able to access them in Soundtrack Pro's Browser Window on the left by selecting the Home Icon toward the top right.
You then can select the folders and subfolders in the Browser to navigate to your audio files (such as in the Audio folder on your computer or external firewire drive).
You can audition your audio files by clicking on the file name.
To stop playing an audio file, click on the Play/Pause button on the lower left of the Browser window.
