Default Import Session Data / Pro Tools alike feature for importing audio contents

Import Session Data / Pro Tools alike feature for importing audio contents. Does such thing exist in Reaper? I'm thinking of something similar to SWS Snapshots in terms of operation (track targeting), but instead of importing audio settings (vol, pan, sends, plugins) it should import audio contents of tracks.

Or if not this, maybe you have some other workflow suggestions for mixing multiple songs recorded during one recording session? Let's say I am done with mixing of one song and I'd like to move on with another. How to quickly replace the audio contents in the session, retaining all mixer settings including folders and all routing? Other than manually dragging dozens of WAV files.

Project Tabs!

Open the source project, and the destination project in two tabs and copy the audio files from the source project and paste into the destination project!

I prefer this method over the import session data/PT method.

Is there a way to copy/paste all the audio for a session in one move, or do you have to move it over track by track? Also curious if you have to consolidate the audio/items from the beginning of the session for this to work, or can you just make a selection including black space between/before & after items?

Thanks for the suggestion! 😀

For each song to be mixed: Why not just copy the entire .rpp file? ...then delete all but the target song.

At this point each new .rpp file shares the same media files, so you might want to:
Open each file (song),
Select All,
then Glue (this will trim and save each audio file as new),
then Save As..., using New Folder and Copy all Media options.

I just marque select all the items you want copied and paste in the new session. You can do this with media items as well as tracks. No consolidation necessary!

But that works only when you have the files in the correct sequence, matching the layout of your tracks. I usually rearrange tracks as I go, so that wouldn't work for me, would it?

Great to know, thank you!!

@jackmilas Yeah, I'm surprised someone hasn't come up with a script of some sort that just imports the track items from one session to another by matching track names. I know nothing about coding, but it seems people here have created scripts that do much more complicated things that that!!

In that instance, I'd just copy the tracks from the source project and paste those tracks in the destination project. Then you can freely move the track contents to where you want them and delete or hide the original tracks.
