That terrorist attack on London Bridge is 10 mins walk from my office. Same bridge as the attack in 2017. Scary stuff. Too many nutters around. Keep safe peeps.

Song/sound Files
« on: November 16, 2019, 06:53:26 PM »
Hey everyone,

So I have quite a lot of loops and sounds I've downloaded to use in my tracks, but a lot of them I wont use again, so would I be able to delete the file from the download folder of my computer without it affecting the track I have used it in? I don't want to end up with a bunch of songs I cant edit in Reaper because I deleted the files lol (I hope that makes sense) Thank you in advance for your help!

For recording, it moves the file to the project directory.  If you right-click on loop/sample in the timeline and look at source properties, you will see where file is located that the project is using.  If it's pointing to your downloads folder, then you need to keep it there for the project to see it.

I might be getting this wrong but if you all ready recorded
a track with the loop or whatever and the track is saved wouldn't it be a done deal ?

Excellent, yes that makes sense as I deleted a couple of files and have lost a few tracks from some of my songs when I open them up in reaper.

Itd be fine to delete them if I knew I didnt want to go back in and play about with them again in Reaper, like if I had completely finished it and published it, but I have a lot of songs I want to go back and re-record later on, so now know I need to keep the files for any songs that I may want to re-record/re-master :)

If you really want to tidy things up you might consider moving them out of your downloads folder and into a seperate projects folder. You will then have to redirect where reaper is looking for them but at least they won't be at risk of being 'accidentally' deleted.
I am always clearing out my downloads folder. I get a bit ocd when it comes to file management  ;D
