I edit a podcast with four co-hosts, each of whom records their own audio track and sends it to me for post-production. I've been looking for ways to speed up my editing time, and just started playing around with the trial version of Vegasaur, which appears to do a good job at cutting out silences.
But now I have four separate tracks of audio with time gaps that need to be closed while maintaining the synchronization of the audio across all tracks. I've done a bunch of research and have found lots of ways to close gaps in a single track, but nothing about how I can close them across multiple tracks.
Basically, I need to write (or find) a script that says (in pseudo-code): If no one is talking, close the gap (red areas shown in the image below).
Anyone know of an existing script or extension that does this?
