I repeated the same question many a times and still waiting for the answer. Is there a way to have currently recorded audio go into user defined recognizable folder and not "hold it all" that includes everything from every song.
Is your only solution creating multiple instances of Libraries and resetting preference path manually for any song that I work on ?
I am not expecting any advanced , sophisticated system like of Pro tools just basic minimum- I start a project/song whatever you call it> define where the files are to be stored- not thrown in some kind of temp folder with everything else
EDIT: what I meant is that I get the feeling you are saving your sets into the Library?
As I read your message now, I think there is a very basic (that is certainly not well explained anywhere yet), that you did not get. There are two things:
-the Library, which is a place where only commonly used files should be. The Library itself is a giant project, which allows to manage it *once in a while* - it is not meant to be managed every morning I guess.
-you have Project Folders, in which should only reside files belonging to one project. A Project folder contains sub folders to keep your stuff organized (one of the thing some other users don't like), including a 'recorded' folder.
You do not need to create a Project folder, it is created automatically when you save a Live set to a location that is NOT the Library or another existing Project folder.
-create a new Live set
-save it (empty) somewhere on your computer, but not in the Library nor into another Project folder
-now record some audio into your set.
Go look in the location you saved your set to: there is a Project folder named after your set. Into that folder, you'll find a subfoder named 'recordings', containing the recording you've just made.
Now if you go back to Live, locate the Project into the Live Browser, right click on it, and choose 'manage project'. It should not take long, and it should show you the recorded sample.
You should repeat these exact same steps each time you start a new song. Only save multiple sets into the same Project folder if they are different versions of the same song, so they refer to the same material.
Once you are used to that logic, you can use it a bit differently. If, for instance, you start recording before saving the un-named set, then save it somewhere (not in the Library nor into another Project folder), the same will happen: a Project folder will be created, with a 'recordings' folder in it, and the already recorded material will be moved into it. Until then, the recorded material is temporarily stored into the temp folder chosen in the Preferences, File/Folder tab.
Hope that helps,
