cleaning up reaper files
 
stupidly didnt make separate project folders when i started using reaper now i have all these crappy out-take samples that i dont need and no way of deleting them without screwing up my other projects

anyone know if there's anyway i can delete all the sample that arent being used in any of my projects ?

thanks

Re-save the projects you want in a project folder and then just delete everything else? I may be misunderstanding your predicament.

i tired doing that but all the samples stay in the main folder

ive started moving them manually into separate folders but its going to take a hell of a long time

I'm also wondering this. I did the same thing and I have roughly 3 years of projects that are stuck on my HDD haha. Anyone have some insight? Me and TS will love you forever, we swear :)

Save as, select the option to make a new project directory and to move all files to the new location. Delete all your old project folders and audio clips once you're sure the newly saved project directory and project files are working correctly.

So, i don't know if you have aready figured this out on your own or not, but i figured it out. Go to file>Consolodate/Export Tracks

Make The new folder where you want it to be, and consolidate the project to there. All of the files will be copied to that new folder. Next time you open the project, navigate to that folder and find the project file, then open it with that through the File>open option in reaper.

Side note, all of the midi things ie. drums or whatever will become one solid midi part, so make sure you edit the cut pieces first before you do this, less it gets very tiresome to edit a huge line of midi in post production.
