Though using git sounds like a great idea—especially working with branches for
plugin configurations—I doubt it will work well with large audio material. You
would need a remote repository to store probably gigabytes of data.

I made some good experiences using syncthing¹ which does not require a central
server and works great for transfering large audo material. The only thing to
note is to not edit the session file simultaneously.

Maybe a combination of both would make sense: Using git for handling session
files and any non-audio file and using syncthing to transfer the (large) audio
