Default Consolidation problem

Hey.

I have a project with a lot of tracks of different lengths, which I want to consolidate so I can send this project to a studio which works in another DAW for mixing.

I get this message that I can't do this as no record volume is designated when I mark several regions and press this command.

I have of course looked for answers and people have had this coming up whenever the program wants to write new audio files to the drive during recording, consolidation etc.
Either they have had to change "A" in the workspace to recordable (R) or they have been missing a plug in for consolidating in which case they haven't even been able to press that option in the edit drop down menu.

I have double checked several times in the workspace window that the disk is marked "R" as to be recordable so that dosen't seem to be the problem. And I can give the command to consolidate it, it just dosen't comply and gives me the error message.

What seems even more strange to me is that I can consolidate some of the audio files but not others if I try to do it separately. I can consolidate files I've imported and therefore is located in other folders than the project folder but not the ones that are recorded directly to the project.

Therefore I also tried putting all files into a single Audio Files folder, and I also tried it from another drive but nothing seems to work.


Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Nils

Were you able to consolidate any of the ffiles with either of these configurations?

I was able to consolidate the files that I imported to the projects still even when they were in the same folder but I still can't consolidate the files that are recorded in the project. The imported is also .wav so everything is the same format.

From the Finder, if you Get Info (Command+I) on one of these files that were recorded into the project and tab open the Sharing & Permissions section, what is listed in the left column for owner (first entry) and group (second entry)? What are the permissions assigned to each of these entries (to the right)? What are the permissions for the Everyone group?

I'm running HD10 for PC win7 64bit.

But I can open properties and go under the security tab which I guess corresponds to what you described.

I have full permission to:
"full control, modify, read and execute, read, write" which are the different permissions at hand.

These apply to "Group or user names":
SYSTEM
MY PC
ADMINISTRATORS

And I'm having this computer alone and therefore has only one log on which is the administrator one so I don't think that's the problem either.

Question Re: Consolidation problem

I don't do Windows. What happens if you Save Copy In and copy all audio files, then try to consolidate from the session copy? That's the last troubleshooting step I can think of.

Default Consolidation problem

Paybreaker… try checking : set up, disk allocation. It sounds to me like your tracks are assigned to different places. … short cut in the disk al' window, alt Click on a track ( this'll select all the tracks), then select folder from the drop down & nav' to your session folder. … now try your CDT.

Default Re: Consolidation problem

I'm gonna look if the tracks are assigned to different folders when I get back home. I'm Away this week. Spontaneously it feels lile they should just consolidate to their assigned folders (there are only two different folders that I use) as each track only have audio files from one of these folders which should also be the folder where the track specific data is located. Otherwise that thing about bussing it and recording it on new tracks seemed like a smart and easy solution if it won't work I think I have room for that or otherwise at least for doing that with half of them at a time.

Thanks
