Two ways to do this:
1. during recording, at the times between songs, hit the M key, which puts a marker in the file.
After doing all your processing, delete the green region (should be one region for the file). Put
the cursor at the very beginning of the file. Hit the M key, put a marker there. Do the same at the
very end of the file. Make sure none of your markers are doubled up (one way to do this is save the
file, then make sure all the marker numbers are sequential). SPECIAL menu > Regions List> Markers to
Regions. You will now end up with green region marks around each cut from the cassette side. TOOLS
menu > Extract Regions. Do the dialog box right, and it will save each region as a separate file.
2. if you haven't marked off the "silence" between cuts (there is no silence on a cassette), then do
so after you've processed and saved the file. From there, follow above to delete the original
file-sized region, insert markers at the head and tail, convert markers to regions and extract
If you want to get fancy, right-click the region numbers and choose RENAME to put in the actual
track name. The extracted files will now be saved under those names. I name these with the track
number, ie 01-Start Me Up, so the resulting file would be 01-Start Me Up.wav.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] separating tracks using Sound Forge 9 or 11.
Does anyone out there use Sound Forge?
I have to digitalize many cassettes and LPs.
When they're finished copying, I'll need to separate the individual tracks so I can make a CD where
you can choose which individual track you want to hear.
Right now, I do it manually (highlight, cut, paste and save).
Is there a feature which will do it all automatically by sensing a moment of pure silence and
cutting and pasting automatically?
That would surely be an enormous time saver for me.
Can anyone help me there?
