It’s common for producers to create different versions of a track to try out different arrangements, mix settings and other adjustments. More often than not, this leads to multiple files left on their computer with names like: Project1 mix1; Project1 double chorus; Project1 more bass!!! and…you get the idea.

Logic Pro X has a useful tool that can keep your hard drive a little more organised.
