Project templates for AudioChain
An audio project template is nothing more than an audio project. If you want to create your own templates, start with a new audio project where a template is not in use. You can add anything you need to the audio project and save it anywhere.
You should not record any files when creating the template, because the template contains only the information which audio devices are used on the tracks. The recorded audio data is stored in separate raw files and are not part of the template.
What happens with a new project where a template is used? There are two notable points: the initial creation and the further incremental addition of new audio tracks.
When the new project is created by a template, AudioChain clones the whole template to create the new project. This means that the result will have the same number of audio tracks and on each audio track the same audio devices used in the template. That is easy to understand, since the new project is a trivial copy.
The second point to notice is the creation of new tracks. If you do not use a template, you will get empty tracks while adding them to the project. If a template is in use, the newly created tracks will be copies of the rightmost track of the template.
What is this good for? If you create a template, you might want to have the drum computer always on track one. But all other tracks should have a recorder as their source audio devices. In this case you would make a template with two tracks, the first track with the drum, the second track with the recorder. Projects that uses this template will create the first track with the drum and all following tracks are copies of the second template track, so they will all have a recorder.
Here are some useful templates for you to become started quickly and can just focus on your art (right click, save as).
