Chapter 3. Starting a Project > Using the Empty Template

Using the Empty Template

When none of the templates fit the needs of a project, you can use the Empty template to start completely from scratch. However, most of the time, you will find starting with a template easier, and if you spend some time making your own templates, you'll rarely find a situation where you have to use the Empty template. If you find yourself using the Empty template often, consider whether you can create a new template for at least some of the situations where you are now starting from a blank slate.

To create a new project with the Empty template

1.
From the File menu, choose New Project, which opens the New Project dialog box (Figure 3.29).

Figure 3.29. The New Project window opens, including the list of available templates; select the Empty template to start a project from scratch.


2.
Select the Empty project, which creates a blank project with no audio or MIDI tracks; then click OK.

3.
In the Select Directory dialog box that opens, navigate to the folder where you want to save a new song or create a new folder (Figure 3.30); then click OK.

Figure 3.30. Locate a folder for the project or create a new one.


4.
A new, unnamed project opens. Save it right away by choosing File > Save As and naming it (Figure 3.31).
