    Hi - Okay I've read you can consolidate fragmented tracks by exporting and importing individual tracks to and from the audio depot. Problem is -- it only gives you a choice to import to empty tracks. Are you supposed to export all tracks to the audio depot and then erase all the original tracks? If anybody has tried this, would love to hear if it worked. The backups I save to my pc have so many files it's ridiculous and I'd like to simplify if possible. Thanks for any advice.

    Create a new song using the current one, and import. Lot's of tips about this in the "Equipment Related Tips" sticky thread.
