Adobe Soundbooth Help!

I downloaded the trial version of Soundbooth to try for quick and dirty audio work. I like it. It's simple and functional but there is one thing about it that really bugs me.

*I can't figure out how to do this.*

Record on a track. Stop the recording to clean up the audio. Then start the recording again without it overwriting the first clip.

I usually use Vegas where this is not an issue.

Am I missing something or does Soundbooth not have this capability?

I'll check this out when I get home to my system, but iirc Soundbooth makes a new file every time you start a recording. If the old one is getting overwritten, maybe you can give the new file a new name? Just off the top of my head, so I will play with it (we're Final Cut at work, so I don't have access here) /Battle Vaughan/miamiherald.com video team

Ok, I'm playing with this now....Soundbooth makes a new file every time you stop recording. You can set, in the record prefs window that opens when you record, to increment the filename or do a new filename. I don't see how it over-writes any old files...

The drill is, I think, to edit your individual files and concatenate them in a multitrack file, or concatenate them in multitrack (you can drag the files all to one track and join them) and then do your edits and save as a new file. Or you can copy and paste from one open file to another.

The files show up in your media browser window as you make them, so you should be able to see what you have. Probably I'm missing something, but are you sure that the files have been overwritten? /bvaughan
