Unfinished Project Names


#1

So, I am notoriously terrible at organizing my work (or at least I have been traditionally for most of my producing days). In the past when I start a new project, I always name it something stupid, ridiculous, or crazy because I have no idea how to name incomplete or rubbish tracks.

I thought it would be amusing to post some of my old project names. I know I can’t possibly be the only one that does this, so I think we should get a thread dedicated to everyone’s strange project names. :slight_smile:

Here are some of mine…

A Big Stupid Garbage Truck

I’m usually something like: « BS idea in Amin »
Or « chords in Emin » or something really dry .


#3

Mine are like “house Am 128bpm” lol.


#4

Look at you guys… being all reasonable and efficient. Makes me sick…


#5

Not so bad. I call my tracks 123, aaaaa, qoqoq and so on.

Project Names can be more specific like drop 1, drop 2, compressor experiments, or the name of trak i stealing (copying).


#6

Trust me the uncreative names are their own can of worms with a six month old file an d remembering what the hell it is.lol


#7

Something…like…Breakcore bass shit


#8

Pro tip: at least name things like cool bass or cool sound 11. Now, this is like opening a mystery bag. Bad execution.


#9

I typically use a header based on what I am working with.

Ie. Nameless_Bb_265_Am7-11 would be something like nameless (ie working title),
Bb (breakbeat, changes based on project),
265 is the tempo
Am7-11 is the key, and chord types.

This was the method we used in post production studios, at Tesla, and typically most studios.

For sound design and exercises… separate folders titled stuff like

Big Farts
The Crackheads Late Night Street Recordings
Beats, bops, and voxs
Master Splinter and the wingnutz
These are not bass
Yeah I got noise, so what?!!
Did you say, you need a drone
Don’t touch my purse
