Lossy audio compression for archiving projects

Post by Kristijonas » Tue Dec 27, 2016 12:20 pm

Hi, guys, do you know any workaround to compress lossy audio for Live project? Live Pack or RAR is not the enough for less important, bus space-hungry projects.

Well, I have tried to experiment this way and it worked:
• I've deleted all analyse (.asd) files in the project
• Compressed to m4a and deleted all .aif using XLD (as it has „correct 30 samples moved offset problem“)
• Decoded back m4a to aif using MAX audio converter (XLD does not convert m4a back to aif)
The project opens in LIve successfully!
It's an experimental way, but it still would work for me, as I have tons of spoken audio projects and have to keep project files, just in case :)

Cheers! ;)
