KRISTAL stores your musical work in KRISTAL Project files (*.kristal). When starting a new project, you should create an empty folder first (e.g. in "My Documents").
Next select 'File' - 'Save As...' from the main menu bar and type in a name for the new Project file.
Audio files created by recording are stored in a 'Media' sub-directory, automatically created in the same folder as the Project file.
If the project was not saved yet, recorded audio files are stored in "My Documents\KRISTAL Media Files".

It can be edited by selection 'File' - 'Project Information...' from the main menu bar.
Additionally, the dialog displays the project location on your harddisk and the Sample Rate.
