Sorting Tracking stuff (overview over the chaos :))
Reply with quote

Being a chaotic nature I want to get some order into my collection. My question is: How do you get a good overview over your tracking stuff. I mean I have directories for Instruments etc. But I know have a lot of CDs with abandoned modules and I usually save different versions of one module so the space on the CD is getting short. Any wise help? Maybe using the OnDisc setting maybe a help. At least something I could then add to my tutorial Smile My father always says: Non scolae set vitae. That means: We are learning for live not for school . He should know it he is a teacher.

Any help appreciated.

Regards

BMX

I'm not sure I'm the right person to comment, since my HDD is in such a mess right now. But I have my modules categorised per year. Everything I've done in one year is in one folder and so on. That only goes for completed modules though, unfinished stuff just floats around in a "unfinished" folder Smile My instruments are totally random placed, so there I can't give much advice Confused
