Default Imported Audio Duplicating

Hi,

When I go to teh workspace then select drag and drop audio files,
In the regions section it has a L & R for each audio. and then save this in the audio folder.

How do I stop pro tools from duplication my audio intput and for it just to take the audio from the folder I imported from, not make more copies..

Thanks

It's not a duplication. Pro Tools does NOT work with stereo interleaved files. When you drag and drop a stereo interleaved file to a stereo track, it's left (L) and right (R) components are separated out.

Cheers,

Thanks..

so just to clarify there is no way to stop this.. cause I end up with the original fiels I imported as well as the L&R ones.. this takes up a cazy amount of space..

Are you saying that you want the files from the Folder you are importing from to be deleted when the file is imported into Pro Tools so, instead of the original file and the L/R files in the Pro Tools Audio Folder in the session you only have the L/R files?

Sorry, AFAIK, that's not how it works. The original is kept and a new L/R audio file is created.

Two suggestions: 1) buy a bigger hard drive and/or 2) delete the originals yourself.

Personally, I would buy a bigger hard drive since there's no way I want to delete/change the original files just in case, for whatever reason, I need to go back to them.

Cheers,
