As a programmer I’m used to having a code repository for my projects. Meaning I can always go back to an earlier version of my code or just look up if and how something changed. This has caused me to be somewhat messy in my projects because I have always the repository to rely on when I make an error or delete something I still have to use later.
Now after doing a few little projects in Reaper I noticed how much I rely on such a repository. 4 different drumtracks I created for the practice website? Lucky if I still have the last one saved from that project.
Has anyone any experience with using code repositories on music projects or knows of other useful tools to help one keep track of projects in the DAW?
I don’t mean manual stuff like how to organize or something but actual tools that take at least some worries away from you so your focus can be on music and not saving everything you might need later and then not find it again and not be sure if you saved it at all in the first place.
