Are we talking about saving new sessions and leaving files associated with previous sessions unmutilated? If that's the case I absolutely agree.
> I would like to be able to save to disk only those files which are currently being used within the session
Using ASIO the audio is streamed to the disk - so its already 'saved'.
> I have folders full of useless takes that are filling up my HD and I haven't the patience to go through them all for deletion. I didn't want them saved to begin with!
Then you need to be using this application - it will sort all that out and deal with multiple sessions as well.
