Sorry if this is a redundant question (search didn’t find anything close that I saw) but I’d like to see opinions on how to handle this situation:
I frequently record 16 track live sessions with a bunch of musicians where I am also playing (so don’t have time to manage the recording while in progress). Basically, it is:press record and go for upwards of 6-7 hours. When it’s done, I have a single CPR file containing all of these songs. 30+ songs usually. Each song needs different mixing treatment/handling than the others - tunes and tweaks and such. This is where it gets difficult to manage since there’s not one mix for the whole project. What are some good suggestions for workflow here? Most of the songs are going to use a very similar starting point for the mix, but it would be more manageable to have each song in a separate CPR file. Or would it? The solution may be very obvious and/or simple and I’m missing it.
Thanks for any feedback/tips!
