Matching audio edits that were created with remix tool...

I know this is a long shot, since I have scoured the community and the web and cannot seem to find the answer. When you use the remix tool to edit a music track, is there any way to re-create those exact edits again on the licensed track once you purchase it?

 

For example-

I download a preview music track from Adobe Stock and use the remix tool to customize it for my edit. When the project is approved and ready to send to mix, my client then purchases said track so I can replace the preview track in my sequence. I've tried to "Replace With Clip", that just drops the licensed track into the sequence, unedited. I've tried copy/paste effects (supposedly including "remix"), but that does nothing at all. I've also tried to recreate the remix with the licensed track, but have a heck of a time getting it to match the edits that were created in the preview track. It will give me the right length, but never puts the edits in the same place again, even with the exact same settings in the "Segments" & "Variations" tools in the Essential Sound Panel. I've also tried to take the preview track offline and reconnect it to the licensed track. It still does not recognize the remix.

 

Am I missing something?

 

It would be nice to at least have a feature where you could figure out where it puts the edits by timecode, either through edit detection or even some kind of EDL that I could use to re-create it.

A Remix is a nested Sequence that only shows in the Timeline.

 

Use Match Frame (f) to open the Remix source in the Source panel and then Insert (,) or Overwrite (.) it back into the Sequence as Individual Clips.  Note:  Do not double-click as that opens the instance of the Remix in the Timeline in the Source panel rather than the source itself.

As individual clips, the source can be relinked or replaced.

Right click on the preview track in your project window

Choose Replace Footage

Navigate to the new track and select it

The licensed version should now be in your timeline with all your edits and tweaks.

Thanks, but I've tried that many times. All it does is replace the remixed preview track with an un-remixed licensed track.

Have you tried the following:

 

Select the audio clip with the unlicensed (remix) version. While holding down the Alt/Option key, drag the licensed version from the project window onto the clip. Does that replacement work?

Hi Richard, thanks for the suggestion. I did try that just now and unfortunately, it does the same as Replace Footage. It replaces the track with the un-remixed licensed version.

I rarely use Remix for making custom mixes. Has to do with my background as a mixing DJ and the very specific ways I want the remix to happen. Instead, I create my own remixes in Audition and simply overwrite the mixdown file as non-official dynamic linking option.

 

But please try @Warren Heaton's suggestion below.

Just an FYI.  I figured out another way to do this that worked for me.  It only works if it's the exact same filetype and same length, etc.  So you can't replace an mp3 with a wav file.  Basically I made the file offline.  Then relinked to the non-watermarked clip and it worked.
