    Organizing Sample Folders

    Whats the best folder setup for storing all your smaples?

    Re: Organizing Sample Folders

    I have mine organized by collection, e.g.:

    EastWest Orchestra/
    Big Fish First Call Horns/
    Kontakt Experience/

    I know where I've spent my money so that's how I organize the sample folder. Also one thing to note is that the encoded Kontakt/Kompakt Player libraries (like EW, Big Fish, etc.) can't really be split up, so it's not like I can take the trumpets from FCH and EWQLSO and put them in the same folder, because they won't find their respective samples. So I leave everything organized by sample package, the way they were originally downloaded.

    I created a few catch-all folders, like "Pianos." In my Pianos folder I put all the various pianos I have -- some of which I downloaded from the internet, some of which I converted from Akai or Giga CD's, and so on...

    So I guess I use a combination of the two methods. Pre-built sample collections stay organized by sample collection. Then some instrument-based folders contain instruments from a variety of sources.

    It's all up to you and what makes most sense to you, but I find that I'm easily able to navigate around my library and quickly find the stuff I need, since I organized it myself.
