    I think you can only send an individual file to stp audio file project by selecting the clip in the timeline (at least that's the way I work) and control clicking and choosing send to sound track pro audio file project.  If you want to send multiple files, you need to send to choose a different option.  I'm capturing a long tape now so can't check how it's named.

    i tried to send individual clips and it doesn't work. have downloaded preference manager to attempt a fix using that program. have had this problem for a while and started a discussion on it last year but couldn't find a fix. thanks for your input and i'll let you know if preference mgr. does anything.

    Here's exactly what I do.  Select a clip in the timeline, control click and choose send to:  soundtrack pro audio file project. 


    When you do this, what happens?


    What are your audio clip settings?  Could be a problem I suppose with a non fcp friendly format.  It should be 48k 16bit aiff.
