    possible, yes.

     

    easy:

     

    you could export each project and drop the resulting audio files into the timeline of a new project

     

    slightly more complex, but more flexible and easier for a project on which you intend to keep working would be to copy all the regions from each project and paste it into another.

     

    this tutorial about rescuing damaged projects will give the background info that you can apply to merging two or more projects:

    how do you drop the resulting audio files into the timeline of a new project? {...} The only option I see in the menu bar for GB is Export to Disk.

     

    that's it, export each project to your hard drive, then drag and drop the exported files into a new project

    .I thought when you bounce a project of so many tracks then the bounced project becomes a single track and impossible to edit?

     

    yes, that's why it's less flexible, though not impossible. you can edit the original projects, export and re-import (rinse; repeat)

    I want to import each track individually

     

    the tutorial explains the easiest way, and would retain MIDI tracks as such, but you could solo each track one at a time and export, then drop all the files into a new project
