Default Mastering workflow question

When you have a project with an album's songs laid out this way, you can use the region render matrix to render each songs in one batch, but is there a convenient way to embed each song's individual metadata in the process?

Yes. The render window has a "Metadata" button where you can edit the metadata for your render with support for wildcards etc. So $region and $regionnumber might do the trick.

Thanks, I'm not sure how using wildcards will achieve what I'm trying to do but I'm going to look into this for sure. Any chance there is a tutorial or something about this?

A simple example:
You have 12 songs on an album with different song titles. The track names contain the song titles. So, in the metadata window, you put $track in the Song Title field. When you render, the song title in the track name is automatically written to the Song Title metadata field for each song.

just following this ... and good to know.

question: Could this 'meta' entry also be [auto]-used in the Filename when Rendered ?

Yes. It can even be in drive paths.

Thanks, I get how this can work with song titles / track names, but what if you want to embed a full set of metadata with ISRC codes, track number, UPC code, songwriter credits etc. ? Is there a way to write all of this in the track name (or elsewhere) and use a wildcard?

Not in the track name, but if you use regions or markers (assuming your songs are spread out in the timeline since you’re mastering) you can add arguments to different regions or markers for each song.

Check this out for an explanation: https://youtube.com/watch?v=2FXOtV2tQQ0&feature=share (at 20:19)
This tutorial is the best resource I’ve seen in this feature which is not very well documented but potentially very useful.
