Sujet Best way to organize music
Posté Fri 26 Nov 10 @ 10:06 pm
All of my house music is organized by BPM and Key note, and it's the same way for my trance and electro tracks. Now, since I usually don't like to recycle music, I normally label folders by the name of the club where I will be spinning along with the date. For example, I will label one folder as Rhythm Lounge 11252010, and my set is actually organized by Key note and BPM.
That's how I organize my music.

As for organization, see below. I use playlists heavily and ID3 Tags MUST be correct. I find it easier to keep all tracks in the same place to keep my filter folder scripts easier to manage.

when it dies you lose windows PLUS your music ....not necessary to lose the music also
strip the new unit of the barfware it shipped with ....photo programs , norton mcafee, whatever ,
get real anti virus , or none at all
remove the battery and don't use it
set power management profile to always on , then everything else to "never"
turn off all system sounds
defrag the new unit , it's a mess when you get it outta the box .....
use CCleaner (free) to clean caches , registry , master file table ......
set the paging file to 3x the size of the RAM and then move it to your external drive (yet another way to
remove a workload from the C: drive )
turn off unneeded background processes and startup programs (this will require researching these items on Google
get a copy (free) of Quick Restore Maker .....
make it a habit to set your own restore points several times a week
now the easy stuff organizing the music
the above suggestions are good , if those will work for you
i work in a strip club and do mobil events so i have many real and virtual folders and filter folders
i don't bother much with playlists for 2 reasons ... i feel too much i'm serving up leftovers , and
you always have the history list which duplicates somewhat a playlist
as far as external drives go .....i've used many sizes and many brands .......use smaller sizes , they defrag faster
use what's cheapest , they're uhhhh cheaper ......they all last a year or 2 and die anyway.....
no matter how much you wax it , it won't go faster ......

My mac had alot of music on it and nothing is organized at all so before I start moving stuff to the laptop I want to be organized better than I did on the mac.
For some reason my WD & Lacie external harddrives are not working with this laptop.
Also I don't see a point to save anything by BPMs because when I put the same genre music together and bring it up in VDJ it will get sorted out there plus some music is slowed down or sped up to match anyway.

I'm starting all over again since the last time I categorized my music in 2005. Any ideas for folders? I had before one folder for music that I always played called "Dance" since I DJ clubs. This would contain anything that is danceable I don't do mobile gigs or weddings. I also had genre folders for stuff I played like twice a year if the club deicded to have a private party, lets say 80's night or country music. I'm having a hard time with electro & house since there is more what I consider mainstream dance then in 2005.

To remove background services before using VDJ download Game Booster, it's free once done with your session it will restore those services back to normal.

One thing i do is, I make actual folders inside my laptops HD. I can switch to any dj software and it will read it and i never have to worry about a data base error. All my folders are always there.

make another "Copy" and take up space somewhere on your computers disk? I assume it's just a Virtual Reference but I'm not sure
