What is the best and handiest way to copy projects into one project for live use. Right now each track I have is a seperate project. Thanks
Well, there is no easy way to do this I am afraid.
Best way to solve is to write all your tracks within the same project rather than multiple projects.
I will be doing this from now on but is there no way of moving them at all?
I don’t have an OT yet, but from what I’ve read it’s the kind of unit that takes a lot of thinking and planning before you even start to use it. Otherwise you might end up in a situation like you.
When I buy one I have planned to use a separate project for each genre I’m going to do. A deep house project, a techno project, an ambient/downtempo project and so on. That way it should be quite easy to transport the music to a live situation.
There are some limitiations to this way of working of course, but I’m willing to accept them.
I would still keep it in one project, maybe using folders for the different genres…you never know when you’d like to use that deep house chord in your techno track or ambient/downtempo track! The only real limit is 1000 audio files per folder + size of compact flash card, so why create artificial limits by creating separate projects?
What about backing up everything to computer, formating card and starting from fresh and load the projects back on?
Sorry for the stupid question, as I don’t own an OT yet, but isn’t it possible to just save samples on the flash card, without attaching them to a project? Just free-floating samples, that you can load to any project you want.

Sorry guys, I was thinking “sets” when I wrote “project”. Each “set” contains one audio pool, but you can have many projects per set.
Still, I wouldn’t create a “deep house” set, a “techno” set, unless you’re never going to access audio from the other set. I would have one global set, maybe with “deep house” and “techno” projects.
And to answer your question, there are no free-floating samples that are available to all “sets”. Page 9 of the OT manual shows this hierarchy.
That was my intention, to have one global set, and projects for different genres (very broad genres, basically just stuff that might sound good together in a live set).
So, to get rid of the confusion: I can have a set, which contains a huge, basically unimited audio pool full of samples, then inside the set there are projects that can load samples from that audio pool and the projects are limited to 128 flex and 128 static samples?
If I’m inside a project and sample something, can I save the sample into the audio pool (ie. for other projects to use)?
Sorry for sidetracking the topic with noob questions!
Correct to all those questions. Samples you record can be saved to the Set’s Audio Pool, or the project folder, setting is in the project preferences.
Even though it takes time and patience, everything can be copied between projects and sets
the part and patterns,
but you have to note the samples and locations abd relocate them
i do everything in the same project when possible
