  • Ghost track in EDIT mode

    In Edit mode: One track is showing a file that cannot be found browsing (using File/Add on other track). I’ve browse through all projects and maps. It can be renamed, cannot be played (as if a silent file).

    Perhaps a deleted file still showing in Edit view.
    Causes a bit of confusion when organising files in a project with many recordings.

    Probably a bug; FW 1.0.11

    How did you create the preset this happens in?

      Thanks for your reply and for looking into this.

      You asked about “preset”. I am sorry but I do not understand. Did you perhaps mean to ask “project”?

      Thanks again, glad to be here and in the blue box.

        Steve, hi!
        Thanks for answering and your interest.

        Ok. You’re interested in how I created the project this happened in. Hmmm. Not sure I really understand understand what you mean. But I will try to answer:
        - it is one of my first projects so it is created under the initial FW before updating to ver. 1.0.11
        - it is therefore not created by saving as template.

        Did this answer your query?

        Kind regards

        Yes. That was the info I needed. At what point did you remove the original files from this project? I'm trying to piece together your workflow in terms of the order you did things. I need enough info to reproduce this on my end... if I can't see it - I can't fix it, assuming it is broken in the first place!

        There is a known issue of audio files hanging out after the Save As Template... method but I am trying to determine if your issue is the same, similar, or different. So any and all info (without me asking 20 questions) is always appreciated.

      I have no recollection of the deletion of that specific file.

        I encountered a similar issue recently

        In a project with no files loaded (edit menu empty), track 1 played back a file that was recorded elsewhere. I can't really reproduce the issue, it did not persist after a power cycle. FW 1.0.11

          Got this problem too. For me the source of the problem is that if I delete a file from the SD card the project still thinks they are there.

          I assume the bluebox isnt scanning what files are actually there. I tried deleting the assets xml along with the files in the hope that the bluebox would generate a new one but that didn't happen.

          This actually is quite an annoying little bug for me, If I do 20 takes with 12 tracks on something I prefer not to delete hundreds of files by hand or make a new project just to keep everything tidy.
          FW 1.0.11
