Default Back To Basics

Hello!

Have a good laugh!

Now, when I drag files into an empty session and place them on a "New track" at "Song Start", PT asks me to point it to the "Audio files" folder, and I can see them there, safe and sound. When I opt to place the files in the "Clip list", PT doesn't ask. The files are there in the clip list, but when I look in the session folder, there is no Audio files folder, showing me where the files live.

Please explain what is happening there, as I don't want to mis-place the files.

Thank you!

Prefs / Processing / Import / Automatically Copy files on Import - Check This

when this is checked .. dropping in Track List, Clip List, Drag and Dropping Into Edit window, this will Copy files into your Aduio Files Folder !!!

Thanx, for the response!

This is the first time I've ever been to this particular page. "Automatically copy files ...." is checked. it seems to be working on some sessions and for on others.

I don't know what's happening. All the sessions have their files, and they are playing.

The files are all backed up, so I'll just continue working, and keep my fingers crossed.

Thanx, again!

There is a drop-down menu at the top right of the slip bin, bit i don't see that option there. is this an HD function?

When I right-click on the files themselves, there is the option to "Reveal in workspace", which shows me the folder from which I imported them.

Now, with "Automatically copy files ...." checked, the files should be placed in an "Audio files" folder, right?

When I right-click on "Clips", at the top, I see the dialogue you showed me. When I right-click on the actual clips, I see the dialogue attached.

"Reveal in workspace" takes me to the folder that I dragged the clips from; and they's not in the audio folder for the session.

you do not need to right click to the Show / Fullpath ..

right click here is on specific clips, yes reveal in workspace .. ok ..

so drag the clips into your audio files folder and then relink /point them to the correct folder .. and now you know for next time !!!

i either put them new files in my audiio files folder directly - then import from there - Adding instead of Copying because they are already there / or have that checjed in Prefs and don't worry about it ..

cheers john
