List of effects applied post export, waveform - possible?

Does Audition keep a record of the effects I applied to a .wav in waveform mode? I did a voice-over session a few weeks ago, imported the recorded audio into Audition, applied a few effects like dehummer, etc., and the result was great. Today, I imported a different recorded clip into Audition, and went blank on which effects I applied to that other clip. Okay fine, I'll take the hit on needing to improve my workflow, because I did not write that stuff down (I will now), but I really did - as naive as it may be - rely on Audition to keep a track of what I applied to that clip. I mean what's the point of saving the file once you import into Audition (the .pkf file) if that data does not get saved, or am I missing something? Does it keep track? If so, where is it? Otherwise, one would have to keep a log of every effect, ever adjustment, and that can get a bit maddening no? Thanks in advance!

No it doesn't

However, if you were to use the Multitrack and create a session then you could not only save the FX chain as a 'favourite' but you could also revisit the session - either way you won't have that problem again.

Just to add a bit - the .pkf file only provides a visual shortcut for recreating the waveform on the screen - it saves the software from having to recreate it from scratch. The only track of anything that happens to a file in waveform view is, whilst the file is open, what is stored in the temp file. This is the means for creating undos, and you can choose how many of these there are. Doesn't log any details of what you did to the file though. But once the file is closed, the temp file is destroyed. We describe Waveform view as 'destructive' and it really is - once you've closed a file, everything that isn't a part of it is destroyed!

 

There are two ways of keeping track of what you did to a file. The first, you already know - write it down. The second one involves keeping intermediate copies of what you are working on, and you can include the details in the name of each one. Takes up a lot more room, but if it's progressive changes you are making, it's sometimes easier to go back to a particular point and pick it up from there. In a way, this is a bit like keeping temp files as permanent records.

SteveG_AudioMasters; thank you for your thoughtful reply. Ultimately, I think the best takeaway is to write-it-down! And that is all right. Not a problem really, only a bit lazy sometimes. Nevertheless, thank you kind sir! Good day!
