Mixcraft 7 avoids this issue by giving the project folder the name you give your project when you first save. So, instead of a bunch of project folders called "Mixcraft Project nn," you'd have meaningful project folder names.
Did you know it's only $29.95 to upgrade to the standard edition of Mixcraft 7?
Not true. This action only ensures that tracks that are recorded in the project are saved to one folder. It doesn't account for files (samples and reference tracks for example) that are imported to the project.Mark Bliss wrote:Create a project folder and name it, use the proper save function with that folder as the project destination.
Doing so saves all the project assets to one place, eliminating the primary cause for the lost files and "searching for sounds" issues.
Again, not true. This only works when you name a track before recording. When you're in a studio scenario recording multiple takes of a lead vocals you don't want to be messing about with track naming every time you switch to a new track. Additionally, track naming is normally only done after recording, because the name of the track often refers to the way that the artist performed. (which you have no way of knowing until the track is actually recorded).The other half of the "tip" is to name your recorded tracks......
I disagree. There is no 'correct' way of archiving but the most foolproof way in my experience is to make sure that all project sounds and elements are in one folder, including the project, its backups and any 'save as' variants. Then you can copy or move the entire folder to any computer, and open any of the projects by double-clicking it. MC will find all the relevant files without any issues.Learn it. Make it a habit. Its the correct way to archive your projects.
