In episode 126, I invited Michael Rooney (the author of the shareware program, Mediasweeper) to come over and have a chat about exactly what his application is designed to do, and how it works.
For anyone who uses the multitrack side of Audition, this program is a MUST-HAVE!
With versions 2 and 3 of Audition, pressing record in the multitrack writes the new audio directly to your hard drive, even though you may not yet be sure that what you’re recording is going to be a ‘keeper’.
This means that over time, you can end up with quite a lot of saved audio files on your hard disc that you don’t need or want to keep.
Mediasweeper will help you identify (and move) those useless files to another folder ready for deletion (or archiving).
And if you can spare a few bucks via a PayPal donation, I’m sure Michael would be most appreciative!
