Replacing file

Post by ron-e-g » Thu Jan 16, 2020 10:41 am

Hello, OK so this is strange. I've had this same problem before, on the same project. I'd been working on an old project re-mixing. I have had the main voc trk replaced by a guitar part from a totally different song in the past. I had to re-record the entire vocals for that track. Today.. the same thing, same guitar phrase, only on the Back-up vocals this time. I went to the offending project, and merged all the tracks hoping to eliminate this problem in the future. Only other thing I can think of is to completely delete it, and I don't think I should have to do that. I had recently saved this project both as MX8,and MX9 so I still have the back-up voc on the MX8 project.

Finally my question; How do I locate that trk, and insert it back in MX9 from the MX8 project?

Hi,

If you recorded it, it should be in the project folder for the project in which it was recorded.

Guess I forgot (or never knew) :oops: How do I open that folder without it just going to MC interface?

I did a search..found an earlier post where you already explained that to me. Sorry I missed that. So I found the file, now how do I insert it into the MX9 project?

I think I figured it out. Gotta look in the right place! :D Then simply use the Sound Tab the "Add sound File" to the selected track. Dah.
