Replacing a part in the Pool - how?

Post by neilwilkes »

Quick question....

Is it possible to replace an asset from the pool?
I have the original multitracks from the live show, and a separate set of 5 tuned vocal tracks.
If at all possible, I would prefer to have the option to right-click in the pool, and exchange the files.
I cannot see a way to do it short of adding the tracks as normal, close the project then deleting them from the folder and replacing them manually when reloading the project - this is a tad long winded though.

Are there any better ways to do this?
Intel E5-2687W 8-core Xeon, 32Gb RAM, Windows 7 Pro x64, RME RayDAT, UAD-2 Octo x2 & Quad x2 (fully loaded), Adam A7 x5, WK ID Console
Nuendo 1-6, Cubase 6-7, WaveLab 5-7, DTS/DD encoders, Surround Edition etc, Waves Mercury
Blu-Ray authoring, DVD authoring & high resolution audio specialists.

Detailed Specs on request

Hello Neil,

That's the way I do it. It's pretty quick but I agree a "file swap" function would be nice because you wouldn't have to match the file names. It would need to be a multi-file selection process so you could do a bunch at one time.

Me, three. And I'm with both of you guys in missing a nice, robust replace function.

If the files are the same length, and in the arrangement, hold shift while dragging the new file from explorer over the one you want to replace. It will replace all instances even if they are edited and cut up through your arrangement. Never tried it in the pool, may or may not work.
