Re: Best way to rename large quantities of samples for organizing?
Yeah, it does tend to suck, but it can be done.
I think the key is to not have too many samples at all.
I try to have a maximum of about 60 MB of samples after 7zipping.
Most of the time, I only use samples for drums, and everything else is VSTi's and effects.
Although, I do occasionally use field samples too. But those I tend to name right as I make them, and that's not hard.
The other thing is, I've realised that I can't tell the difference between 24-bit drum samples and downsampled to 16-bit drum samples (after processing and editing). So, thankfully, I just tend to use 16-bit eventually. It keeps the archive sizes smaller. And I don't go any higher than 48 kHz either.
