Since I bought me a mic (RØDE NT3) and started recording things that sound interesting to me I keep asking myself what would be a good workflow for importing, cutting/editing and mastering the sounds, export them and - very important - keeping all the stuff organized.
I have found 2 threads that are already covering some questions that are related to my question, one about the organisation of files
and a brand new one
which is about keeping the raw data "as it is" - or not.
So far, I have imported the raw material into my DAW (Ableton Live which works non destructive and keeps the raw data as it is), cutted the sections of a take that I like and put that material on a new track - where I threat it with EQ etc. Then I´ll export the result.
I don´t know if that is a way how somebody more professional than me would work so give me a hint - what happens after you recorded your sounds?
