    It has to be a single, contiguous audio file for it to work. Try either exporting it from the viewer, if you want to fix a single audio clip, or exporting it as a timeline-based project and re-importing it.

    This is one thing that I have to admit really bothered me about Soundtrack Pro since the workflow seemed to be advertised as being a lot easier.

    My plan is to edit non-destructively without having to re-import. Could you elaborate a bit more or provide a workflow to get this thing to work? It's killin me right now.

    O.K. this might be what you're running into...
    It seems that if you have an audio clip that is linked to video or other audio that does not come from the same media file (e.g. the same .mov file), then you have to unlink the files before you can access the Send to Soundtrack Pro Audio File Project menu option.

    More info:
    -Make sure that you are only selecting 1 audio clip.
    -If the audio clip is:
    a) linked to video that comes from another media file
    OR
    b) a stereo pair where the left and right channels come from different source media files

    then you will not be able to select the clip and send it to Soundtrack Pro as an Audio File Project (it can only be sent as part of a multi-track project).

    Assuming that the audio is linked to video from a different media file (this is usually the issue I run into when this happens in my projects), then:
    -select the audio clip (I suspect that a video clip is also being selected)
    -press command-L (Modify->Link) to unlink the audio and video files

    Now you should be able to send to STP as an audio file project using:
    -control-click -> Send to -> Soundtrack Pro Audio File Project.

    I hope this helps.
