I usually tar mine up (with gzip compression) and burn them to CD (or
DVD) when im completely done. I haven't analyzed the compression, but I
think it gets you around half the size (eg. 8 Gig session down to 4 Gig
tar.gz file) which I believe is close to what FLAC can do with the WAV
files. Not to mention that you may also want the session files and
everything else in your session (which FLAC doesn't do).
Ex: tar -czvf mySession.tar.gz mySession
With this method, I could restore the session and do whatever (remix,

Does anyone have a tool for archiving old sessions? I've checked lists
and found suggestions for such a tool which are quite old but can't find
references to anyone having implemented one.
I'm primarily after automatic FLAC encoding/decoding of the wav files,
preserving whatever header information may be needed. For some projects
I'd also find ogg (yes, lossy) compression handy. I record a band
rehearsal weekly and it eats space.
Usually I don't need the recordings after about a fortnight so currently
delete them but it would be nice to be able to keep them around, albeit
at lower quality.
