So, I was working with a fiddle player and had three sources, two mics and a direct signal. She wanted to do three takes, keep them all and go back later to stack and arrange them. I misunderstood and created a whole new project for the second and third takes. When I finally understood what she wanted me to do, I located the files from the first take and drug them into the project with takes two and three. Which basically worked, I think.
Today when I was working with the project with all three takes, I noticed that the files for take 1 and take 2 were the same, both the files from take 1. I assumed it had something to do with the file path from where I drug the first take into the new project. When I went looking for the files from take 2, they were in the Audio folder, but they were all zero bytes. I don’t recall deleting them, and I’m wondering if they ended up somewhere wonky because of my clumsy handling of the files.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? Am I a lone numbskull in this? It is very probable. All the same, any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
