Working with Sessions

This article includes:

Creating a New Session

To create a new empty session:

  1. On the Create Session panel, type a name for the session.
  2. Specify a tempo and time signature for the session, or accept the defaults. Note that you can change the tempo and meter after you create the session.
  3. To find the approximate tempo, you can tap the Tap button in time four or more times.
  4. Click the Location bar to open a dialog where you can choose the location for the session file, or accept the default location.
  5. When you have configured the new session settings, click Create.

A new session is created in a parent folder of the same name. When you export files, an Exported Files folder is created in this folder. This folder is the default location for any files exported from the session.

To create a new session from the main LUNA window, choose File > New (or use the Command+N shortcut) from the File menu. 

To open an existing session, either:

  • Click the session name in the Recent list, and click Open, or
  • Click Open From Disk… and select the session, then click Open.

To clear the recent sessions list, either:

  • Right-click in the Recent sessions list and select Clear Recent.
  • Or choose File > Open Recent > Clear Recent List from the LUNA menus.

Importing an AAF Session

AAF (Advanced Authoring Format) is used by DAW and video applications such as Avid Pro Tools and Adobe Premiere to exchange sessions. LUNA can create new sessions using the AAF file, the audio files generated when the AAF is exported, and a multi-track MIDI file generated with the AAF file. 

What gets imported

When you export or import an AAF file, you can exchange multiple audio tracks with their time positions, fades, and track names. Automation, panning, master tracks, buses, and plug-ins are not included in an AAF file. 

To create a session from an AAF file:

  1. On the Create Session panel, type a name for the session.
  2. Click the Start From AAF button.
  3. From the dialog that opens, choose the AAF session to import.
  4. Type a name for the session.
  5. Specify a tempo for the session, or click the MIDI button, and choose a MIDI file to import.
  6. Click the Location bar to open a dialog where you can select the location for the session, or accept the default location.
  7. When you have configured the new session settings, click Create.
