symphinity Posted July 12, 2012 Share Posted July 12, 2012 Hello everyone. I am a fairly new user to logic pro 9. I have been working with it for about 6 months now, and have run in to a situation pertaining to file orginization. I have been working on an album, and now that I am progressing to the mixing stage, I have been creating a new mixing project for each song. Next, I imported each of the recording session files in to a new mixing project, and delete all the extraneous tracks so I was left with a clean project with just the final tracks I am using for mixing. My goal was to simplify the layout and workflow for mixing, and also cut back on the project size to help efficiency on the CPU. On a couple of projects I have started to get this dreaded error message when I open the project: "One or multiple files have changed in length, as a result x number of files have changed in length or content position." In my mixing project the result was that a track would sometimes be missing the original audio, and instead some snipet from a completely unrelated track was moved to it. So, in my research that I have done it sounds like my misunderstanding of how to properly organize different versions of the same project in one folder has caused this error. From what I can tell, the original audio files that both of these projects, original and mixing, are trying to use are in different or multiple locations, and it has confused logic as to which ones it is supposed to be using. So, here is the part where I am looking for some advice, so I can hopefully minimize the damage and prevent more of my files from being lost. Is there a safe way for me to combine, or move these mixing projects that I have made in to the original project's file so that the audio files are all where they should be. Or should I just leave these mixing projects seperate, but resave the project some how so all the audio files are copied in to the mixing project folder to prevent more of the error messages. In the future I hope to use better file managment to prevent issues like this from happening again. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Chris Running Logic Pro 9.1.6, Lion OS Version ?, Mac Pro 2.8 ghz dual quad core with 8 gb of ram Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
