I have a few songs that when I opened them at some point, I was told a backup version was newer than the file I was trying to open. So I opened the latest file. Cubase renames it “Song 01”. I’ve renamed the backups to “Song” using “Save as”. When I go to look for a song not in the recent list, I see all kinds of numbered file folders and files for any given song. I don’t understand why there are so many numbered projects or which one contains the latest saved file without comparing all the dates. (I’m old school, started using computers while Bill Gates studying geometry. So, I look in the project folder and see a multitude of files and file folders, numbered, un-numbered, with subdirectories. Ahhh)
I’m sure there is a “best practices” to minimize what I’m experiencing. How do you start a project, maintain it, and keep from mixing songs under the same project folder?
