After many projects and experimentation I have found that the workflow I like is to write and track and produce in individual sessions/projects.
But then I prefer to mix in a single large session/project. I do mainly rock/metal, so real instruments and a lot of bussing, sample replacement, midi, and all sorts of tricks to basically make flavors of static play nice with each other [emoji12]
Anyway I find it much faster to do all that in a single session than copying over and over again settings and busses into individual sessions.
What is the best way to combine multiple sessions into one? Hopefully bringing along midi and tempo maps.
If I have no midi, I usually just export the raw tracks like if I was giving them to a mixing engineer. Then import them.
But if there is midi, now I have to deal with tempo maps. I have tried copy and pasting with mixed results. Even if I keep things in linear mode I have to line them up by hand.
Then tempo maps? Useful if there are last minute edits that pop out. Or for synced delay throws and such. Right now I am redoing them by hand.
So all this basically means half a day to a day just doing setup. There has to be a better way! Maybe? Please help!
