i’ve been recording a live-show in the last days (several rehearsals, two complete concerts). 56 channels @ 48kHz, total time around 15 hours of music in a (for the moment) single project.
no edits at all.
with the macbook i’ve been using on location, nuendo took around 15 minutes to save the project in his last version; on a brand new trashcan in the studio, around 12 minutes. external usb3-drives in all cases, showing a very low activity during the recording-process.
the recording itself worked perfectly, not a single problem - but i struggled quite a bit at those extreme long saving times…
automatic transient detection was off all the time.
i’ve been experiencing this kind of behaviour with very editing-intensive-projects too, but was, until now, under the impression that sessions with no edits at all would not suffer from that…
