The Splice app can privately and securely back up every save and sample of your Ableton Live, Logic, Garage Band, and FL Studio projects. The best part - backup is free and unlimited, forever! First make sure you're logged into the Splice App (download here).
How Splice syncs your work:
There are two options for how the app syncs your work, which you can change in the app’s preferences page:
- (default option) Sync projects in the Splice folder: After installing, a Splice folder and shortcut will automatically be created. Save a project into the Splice folder and the app will automatically sync it. You can also drag and drop existing projects into your Splice Folder to sync them.
- * Sync projects anywhere: If you save a project anywhere on your computer or external drive, Splice will ask if you want to keep it synced with the cloud. You can change the sync setting for a project in the app preferences screen.
Once a project is synced with Splice, then all of your saves be backed up to the project’s timeline on splice.com, which is private to you.
Some DAW-specific things to know:
- Ableton Live - every project folder will be considered a new project in Splice. So, if you have one project folder with 10 .als files, saving any of those .als’s will update the same project. Save-as into a new folder to create a new project.
- Logic Pro X and GarageBand - Splice only supports projects in the “package” format, not the “folder” format. Every .logic and GarageBand file will be considered a new project in Splice
- FL Studio - every .flp file will be considered a new project in Splice
