Manual clean-up of unused audio files?

Hi Rui

AFAIK qtr is supposed to delete all unused audio files on exit but it doesn't seem to catch everything. I started a session recently that has been all MIDI until last night when I recorded some audio tracks. My session only uses 2 audio clips currently but there are 3 audio files in my session folder so qtr failed to zap one.

Is there a manual way to force qtr to do a clean-up?

Thanks

it's just a custom shell script all right.

Muse sequencer uses this script
maybe it can be adapted
