Was wondering if anyone here backs up their projects by tracking them out. |
If you do:
1. What format do you back them up in 16bit/24bit?
2. Do you have all effects Dry/Wet?
3. How do you organize the files .ie by year/type/emotion/genre?
All mixing projects are tracked out.
#1. I back them up in what ever format there in at that moment in time. A back up should be the exact copy of what your backing up.
#2. The back up is the same exact thing as what I'm working on. If there are effects on tracks, then they get backed up.
#3. I back each of the songs and tracks in the song by Artist/Band name. This way when John doe calls a year later and wants his song because his PC crashed, i can easily look it up. (your situation is different since your not mixing other peoples music, but if you are, this is the way to go)
