Save cut up audio file to separate files without consolidating.

Hey everyone. I have taken an audio file of me banging around on stuff and I've cut it up in arrangement view. Essentially i've gone in-between each sound and removed the space between them with the delete key. I have multiple clips of sounds on a single track. I'd like to save them all as separate files to put in my user library.

What I don't want to do is use the consolidate function as this will normalize the files. When I export this places them all into one file.

What am I missing??

Thanks a ton.

In case its unclear what I'm working with here is a screenshot of the track in arrangement view.

    First of all: consolidating does not normalize files, as far as i know: it simply joins them together as one. If you want to save all the separate files, you will have to export every one of them separately. Another way is to crop every sample and "collect all and save". This way all the separate samples will be saved to your project folder. You will, of course, have to find them, rename and save them in your library afterwards.

    You could also just consolidate, save the whole part as one, and cut out the parts you need when using it in a new project. But that is up to you :-)
