I’ve got the default new project folder name set to “untitled” as per factory settings, so whenever I create new projects they’ll stack up with the “untitled-XX” number scheme. The problem I’m having is that when I finally decide on a name for the song and rename the folder, cubase of course still thinks to look inside the folder that had the original name for the audio files. If there isn’t a folder with the original name then it finds the audio files in the folder with the new name as expected; but if there is (meaning I’ve made a new “scratch” project with the same “untitled-XX” name that this folder originally had) then it will attempt to connect the audio used in this project with the wrong audio files in that other folder, causing a pretty nasty crash to the audio engine.
Does anybody have a good way of dealing with this? I can obviously get around it by just appending the “untitled-XX” folder that’s conflicting with something so cubase ignores it and then save the project so it knows not to look there anymore, but I would have to do that with all versions I have saved of that project if I want to potentially go back to them without causing a crash. I’ve tried looking around but I haven’t seen any way to “correct” the files in the pool that think they’re external to the ones in the actual audio folder.
