Disk Allocation in Digital Recording

Many musicians just randomly open their DAW (Digital Audio Workstation such as Pro Tools, Logic, Sonar etc) and create files and hit SAVE when done.

No bueno. You are definitely going to have file problems.

Disk allocation in music recording sessions, when done incorrectly, can cost the recording musician thousands upon thousands of dollars, when they need to hire an engineer to come in and find their files for them.

Always check PREFERENCES in your recording software to ensure that all files are being stored in the same DIRECTORY (folder). That way, your files are allocated to the correct directory, and you can spend your money on Atari synth carts and analog synths instead.
