Re: Do you render/bounce individual mix tracks/stems for archive/safety?

I do a simple export of a standard Type 1 MIDI file from Cubase. Although it's simplistic it's a reasonable backup that would give me a fighting chance in an emergency.RichardT wrote:The Elf wrote:Yep.

Do you keep both, then? The rendered and the raw tracks with plugs?
So yes... raw, processed, unedited... I keep the lot. It's saved my life many, many times.
I’m going to bite the bullet and archive my mastered tracks - I know I should be doing it, but this gives me the spur to actually do it.
Elf, what archives do you keep of the MIDI data? Thanks!
