I have a session with a few MIDI tracks and many small MIDI regions, which takes a long time to take snapshots. Over the chat yesterday I’ve noticed that I had 9020 MIDI files in
interchange/<session>/midifiles. I’ve worked a little this morning, edited some of them, copied and pasted a little, but now the number of files jumped to 12115. I’ve definitely have not added that many regions!
I assume there is something going wrong here. Is there anything I can do to find out what the problem is?
Are you using snapshots?
Since MIDI file editing is destructive, a separate copy has to be saved for each snapshot.
and Ardour copies all MIDI files when you save a snapshot.
But that only happens once per snapshot.
Ah, I believe that explains it. I did take one (and I think only one) snapshot last morning. I am still not sure it got to 9020 MIDI files before, although I probably have 5 or 6 snapshots at this point.
I think at this point the best solution is to just print the tracks when the MIDI programing is done and mix in a different session.
Thanks for your help!
