Batch audio analysis — like in the old days.

Post by RobertX » Tue Oct 29, 2019 3:00 am

In Live 8 and earlier you could invoke batch audio analysis of entire folders and subfolders of samples and Live would automatically process and create the associated .asd files. From Live 9 and after, these files have to be either dragged into a Live set or previewed in the preview pane to get the same result. It now takes much longer to accomplish the same thing that used to be accomplished with a single mouse click.

Please bring this feature back!

I don't remember that this option ever changed but even so, there should be no direct need.

Open your preferences and go to the 'File Folder' tab, make sure that "create analysis file" is turned on. After that Live will automatically create such a file every time you drag a sample into your project which IMO would make this a somewhat obsolete feature. Why manually create analysis files when it can be done on the fly?
With kind regards,
