Would anyone be interested in a tutorial on the most efficient way to back up your Pro Tools sessions? I think I've got the process figured out without having to use a scalpel...

the beatrepeat on the synth stuff is all with "effectrix" most likely and the yeah sound is most likely using the vst called "unique" or a vocoder,

I was wondering could someone point me in the right direction. I'm trying to re-create the synth Feadz uses on Numanoid and I haven't had much success. Thanks for any help!

What you need to do is get about 30 soft synths. And not a single one of them should be legitimately purchased. Then you should tell yourself you're going to write a track, and spend the next 80 minutes clicking through presets of every single soft synth you have. After you're sufficiently frustrated that they all sound like shit, go smoke a bowl and play super smash bros. with your roommate for the next two hours. Come back to your track in two weeks and realize the problem was you didn't have the right soft synth, so research what soft synth your favorite electro artist uses, and download that plus about fifteen more of them, then click through presets until you get bored and start watching videos of dogs and babies on YouTube. Then you should decide you hated that track anyway and you'll start fresh on a brand new, different track tomorrow, promising yourself you're actually going to get something down this time.

This is the only way to become a successful producer.

best way is to save the session on an external HD
and when you do an edit save as different versions day by day
or session by session

so in case you wanna go back you can track your steps back


then if you wanna back it up
once you're done i recommend to empty the unused files
from the folder and then click save copy in
and a pop up menu will appear asking exactly what you wanna copy
then you got the copy where ever you want it

The BEST way to back up your shit is with a flash drive by far. I think everyone should own at least a 4 gig one for their music.

Flash memory is by far the most reliable memory on the planet right now, way better than a CD, DVD or hard drive. Shit is TITANIC. Lasts 25 years with regular usage, 100 without. Can survive ANY drop or fall, can survive heat up to 140 degrees, and a good majority of the time you can go swimming with it and it will still work. Even if my USB drive is smashed to bits all I need to do is take out the protected tiny ass little chip and put it in a new one. All for 20 bucks, so cheap nowadays.

Hard drives on average last 3 years, the technology is 30 years old. I think everyone on this board has probably had a random hard drive failure at some point, it's shitty. But take this all with a grain of salt because I'm totally paranoid, I burn 3 DVDs of my album every week. One for me, one for my parents house and one I ship across country to my buddy hahah.

I was actually just gonna talk about how to clean up your session folder to remove unused audio files/backup files and consolidate any offline media like drum samples into one folder. It's a pain but once it's all neat and clean it's totally worth it. Apparently I really care about flash drives though hahah

That's my essay for you homie... go get a box of trojans and a flash drive and you'll always be protected
