    Default Organising Tracks ??

    Hi,

    I'v come to a point where i need to stop downloading tracks and
    start organising, beat gridding and analysing.

    How do you guys organise your tracks?

    If you click on advanced search and search the word organize in titles only you'll get quite a few results with exactly what you're looking for.

    I jus simply download tracks, then when I finish going through that process I then go and find songs that I think would sound great together. After that I go ahead and name it something, and there you go! Playlist / Songs organized!

    Don't use that one.

    Be original.

    I use Madras, Korma and Tikka as my folder structure. I even have a Vindaloo folder for hot tracks, and a Phall folder for scorchers!

    It is kind of a legit question though. People do it differently, some by genre, some by tempo, some by artists etc. Good to get a mixed audience's perspective and then go for you own mixed version.

    Personally, I'm about to re-organise my collection by key and then by tempo. SHould be able to do harmonic or tempo mix very easily then, able to find compatible track sstraight away.
