With a song-list approaching 100. it is difficult to navigate.
starting a new piece the song creation defaults to the pre-destined name and date.
this is fine, but after the first save, then this name cannot be edited without losing or muddling associated data. so out of fear I have a whole list of pieces titled "myname-date" and have no way to identify or change them without running the risk of deleting cross-associated data.
quite often i will not have any idea of what "style" the piece will take until i am half way through creation. then when i do decide on an appropriate association title which clearly describes the piece, I am forced to "save again", meaning that i have two or three pieces of music all the same, but located differently.
this is also difficult because i then cannot add a visible "description" to the name to identify it as "style" or Project.
this is NOT a reference to the "project" page, but a request for "Project Folders" which can be easily moved to external drive storage etc.
I have completed several CDs of music, but have no way of "folder-ing" those pieces to identify them as "completed works" they remain in my song-list in progressively "most recent" order, and I have to wade through them to find the materials that i am currently working on.
I cannot grab an entire song and "move" it to another folder without losing track of VST or PRESENCE instruments. This is mainly through "Fear" on my part, but i cannot afford to lose material from a song that I have worked on for a week.
I cannot "SEE" folders in the track list, nor is it clear where the track and associated audio or vst files are located.
"show in folder" is nice, and provides a bit of info as to what is going on, but again if I touch anything in there then i run the risk of StudioOne losing track of smaller portions of the song data.
A DEFAULT SETTING OF DRAG AND DROP FOLDERS WOULD MAKE LIFE SO MUCH EASIER.
IFFF that drag and drop could carry EVERYTHING that is needed to re-create the song itself including 1. all StudioOne materials, 2. all VST materials, 3. all audio files. - WITH AN ASSURANCE THAT THESE PARAMMETERS HAVE BEEN TAKEN CARE OF SO THAT I DO NOT HESITATE THROUGH FEAR.
My computer music system is complicated and has taken a LONG time to work out all of the VST and Midi implementation.
It also took a great deal of time to "DESCRIBE" these parameters to StudioOne in order for it to work correctly.
I cannot keep track of all of the "finer details" of each inclusion in a piece of music. a VISIBLE FOLDER containing "all relevant data" would help.
sorry, this subject is confusing, i am confused about it even as I write this, I HOPE my description is clear enough.
