EZ Noob Question

Post by BoxDJ » Thu Sep 30, 2010 4:37 am

I know this is an RTFM but if I move my audio files to a different folder, will it affect my tracks in session view as in they will be missing? I'm asking this because I organized my music in the worst way possible and I have to play a set tomorrow. Any help appreciated!

Thanks

I don't know much, but I'm pretty sure if you move stuff, Live doesn't like it. I would play your set, and then move stuff afterwards and get better organised.

There is something called "collect all and save" (or something like that,) but I have never personally used it.

Ableton will try to help you find the samples if they have moved, but at such short notice, I would seriously consider leaving the stuff where it is before doing a spring clean...

I had the same problem (was just for my dj set) -> If you load the project, live will tell you that some files are missing or cannot be loaded. When you click on this messag you can speficy the new path to the files, and it will load again.

Alright cool, I guess I'll have to reorganize after my set.

Thanks! :D
