Hi all, and thanks Martin,
I figured it out - but cannot see the logic behind it.
When I create the project (using File / New project), the option “Use default location” was active. In the entry field “Project folder” on the right side, Cubase used the last project folder and increased the number behind it.
After having created an Audio Track, I chose “Save” (NOT “Save as” (!) ), the the File Svae dialog appears, as this project file (CPR) never was created before (which is correct).
I create a project folder and make up a file name.
What happens, is that the project folder from the project creation dialog is still used, but only for the audio recordings, not for the CPR or for example for the images file (.peak).
a) why would it do that? - seems not logical to me to store the WAV file in another place than the images file (.peak), which belongs exactly to that audio recording.
b) what would I need to do (after I created the project with a default location and saved the project someplace else) to correct the folder where the recording WAVs are stored to, BEFORE I start recording (so no WAVs in the pool or project browser)
Of course I can take care to use the option “Prompt for project creation” when creating a project, but I not necessarily want to bother with this at that time.
Thanks in advance and kind regards
PS.: my sequence of action was:
File, New Project, Empty, Create…, OK
Right click, Add Audio Track (Mono, Name MICs), Add track
Save as, Create Folder, Save CPR to this folder
Record, Sing, Stop
Close Cubase completely
look for WAV file
