Does Ardour have a function similar to Pro Tools “consolidate regions”? this is where you have a bunch of small regions on a track, you select a range -> consolidate = one region with all the audio in it.
in the pipeline I believe…probably a 3.0 and beyond feature
this feature is already implemented in the svn-ongoing branch and will be present in v2.5.
paul is planing some improvements of it in 3.0.
