Export Stems Overwrite Option

asked Jun 30, 2022 in Mixing by markdelorenzo (950 points)

In my position as keyboardist and programmer, I create weekly stems. And frequently I have to add or update tracks. Every time I re-export a stems track it (appends a version number) enumerates them.  I wish there was an Overwrite option checkbox. Maybe to keep the current behavior, the Overwrite checkbox always defaults to unchecked.

Great suggestion, Mark!

Can you edit your post adding the "Feature Request" tag?  I see that you have "new option", but don't know if it will follow the same workflow in terms of not

I would expand the request to the Export dialog.  I create mixes from sub-projects that are imported into the main project.

Sub-project: Export song.  If the name of the song is already in use it adds (1) to the end.

Main project:

1. Locate Event in pool

2. Drag new mix into pool

3. Alt drag new mix from pool over existing Event

4. Permanently delete previous mix from pool
