New to Audition, first time poster, beginner's blues.
I'm in receipt of .aif files of live concerts. The person sharing them with me would like me to "index" and return them without separating the tracks. From what I gather, "indexing" in Audition is essentially adding Cue Markers with a start and end time and naming the tracks.
From there, I would assume I should just be able to export the file (including the Markers and track names) and share the file with the person (who uses Amadeus Pro). However, this has not worked as of yet. My question here is: how would you do this?
I've tried separating the tracks, which seems like the next obvious thing to do, but while the tracks play for both of us in (Apple's) Music and other apps, it does not play for the person in Amadeus Pro, leading me to think there is some kind of default setting that I need to locate (similar to the auto dB reduction in the Multitrack) that is impacting my exports. Are there any hidden settings that could be hampering the effort?
Can anyone out there lend an experience-based hand?

I'd be very surprised if Audition's cue file system will work directly with Amadeus - there isn't really much other software that it will work with at all. A notable exception is iZotope's RX, which appears to handle the format without difficulty, but I can't offhand think of any more that will, apart from the Windows-only CueListTool. The approach that CueListTool uses though, might provide you with a solution:
What you might like to try is to mark up and name cue ranges (that way you get cues at both ends, and a single name), right-click on the list and select the option to export the markers as CSV data. There's a much better chance that these can be manipulated into something that Amadeus can read. It's got to be worth a try, anyway.
