Default Delete all takes with lanes on a track?

Hi Guys,

Hoping a genius out there has a solution for me. I was advised to post this question here instead of newb forum.

I'm editing an audiobook and looking to get rid of all items that are in lanes in a given track. It takes me 5-10 mins per track to do this manually and I might inadvertently delete something not intended. Doing this again and again over 24 tracks is a bit daunting. Is there a way to 'select all items in lanes' and then delete them? The deleting part isn't the problem, obviously, that's one keystroke. The selecting is the mucky bit.

Apologies for photo. Size restriction

Any help is greatly appreciated.

It doesn't sounds clear and logic to me, because you don't use proper reaper terms: do you want to remove items with multiple takes
or
just crop item to active takes if item contain multiple takes
or
you indeed have aligned multiple items in free item positioning mode?

Sorry for the confusion mpl, I'm new to the forum. I have recorded an audiobook.

1. Each chapter has its own track
2. There are 24 tracks.
3. Some passages, sentences, and words have multiple takes, which live in lanes.
4. Sometimes there are 2-3 minute portions without multiple takes (i.e. a single take and no take lanes)
5. My workflow is to 'explode all items to new tracks' which reaper does by giving everything in lanes their own track (which is great)
6. I now need a way to separate out the 2-3 minute stretches where there are no multiple takes from the original track (which has remained intact, despite the creation of new tracks etc)

I thought it might be possible to just delete everything from the original track that consisted of multiple takes, leaving only the 2-3 minute single take parts.

Does that make the situation more clear?

Thanks for your help.

Then Edgemeal's lua script is what you need: https://forum.cockos.com/showpost.ph...76&postcount=3
