thanks for taking the time to try to explain this to me, Robin. i confess that i’m not a programmer, and haven’t used something like git or subversion, and don’t really understand how that would work. i understand if you don’t have time to explain any more of this to me.
the reason i’m asking-- and i think you understand, is that when a normal cubase project file for me can be 1 to 20Mb, saving is quick. when i’ve done only a couple of edits in spectralayers to a vocal or guitar track, it can balloon to 300 or 400Mb. when i’ve worked on a project over several months with 50 or 60 versions, that can add up in terms of saving time and disc space.
what’s been confusing is that when i am using melodyne as an ara extension or using spectralayers as an ara extension, but then making the actual edit in izotope rx7, and transfering it back to spectralayers, and then back to cubase both of those methods seem to add a lot less size to the cubase 10 project file-- than making edits in spectralayers via ara.
if i am following you at all, you seem to be saying that spectralayers is following ara protocol to save the data with the cubase project file-- and so, that must mean that spectralayers generates more data per edit than melodyne or rx7. so when i use melodyne or rx7 via ara the way i described, they are adding data to the cubase 10 project file, just not as much data as spectralayers.
am i getting anything right here?
thank you for your work on spectralayers, it’s been really helpful to my work in the past couple of months.
