I was trying to decide how to organize the sound folders/files on my sounds hard drive the other day, when it dawned on me that whatever I decide now I'm going to have to stick with - forever. Otherwise, when I pull up a sequence that has a bunch of VSTi's that all go out and look for their presets and sounds at a particular path, if that path isn't there I'm outta luck.
Is this true? What do you do to ensure that the libs are located where your plugin can find them when you pull up that project from a year or two ago? Do you have to just keep everything eactly where it is on the same drive letter and path? How else will the sequencer/plugin find the right preset/lib file? I use Cubase. Seems like archiving might be problematic when you're talking about these mega-gig sized libraries. Or am I missing something?
