I'm entering the nutty world of virtual recording, and have some good help around, fortunately. But it's still a catch-as-I-can kind of a pursuit, so I have a question about the best way to back up my work so it's not just sitting there on the hard drive, like a little duck paddling around on the wrong pond, waiting for a spray of buckshot (a crash or some other disaster)... I'm getting a Tascam US428 USB interface, and a computer with ample capacity and speed, CD-ROM drive, and an internal burner; so I'll be condensing files (that I can open back up- for work in progress, etc) onto CD's. But, is there another format whereby one may save work, with actual individual tracks represented, rather than a compressed file? Am I talking about ADAT? Thanks for any informed input, Rog.
