Scott,

First off, I got your new book X2 Power recently and like the new format, although the font is smaller. I like the little tips highlighted in the boxes. Man, there is so much information to digest. Is your book utilized as a textbook somewhere? Is that the CENGAGE Learning connection? Back to topic...........

Your earlier offering gave tips for organizing plugins. Do you have any system or tips in organizing drum loops or samples? Any samples really. I'm a soft synth neophyte, but when using them often find a sample that 'oh that's cool' but lose track when going away and trying to find my way back there. So many samples are included how do you even begin to make any organization? Suggestions please.

so the ideal place would be an external hd this way ya don't eat up valuable space on your main drive.ya call recall your drum loops and or samples lightning fast.dedicate a folder called drum loops and one for samples.
vst plugins mainly go to steinberg/plugins on default.but with that said some companies put them all-over-the-place.watch when ya install new vst plugins to see their path goes to steinberg,if not make note.
"So many samples are included"if ya mean there are tons to hear--well ya just have to audition 1 by 1 and save the ones ya like to those folders.if ya don't have external drive than create a folder of your choice and save them there.

Hey Kevin,

Thanks very much for picking up my book! Glad to hear you're enjoying it. I'm not sure if it's being used as a textbook anywhere.

As Jack suggested, you either need to make a note of your favorite samples/presets or save them in a specific location.

Unfortunately, there's no other easy way to keep track of them because different synths save their presets in different manners.

For drum loops and samples, you can put those in a favorite folder location on your hard drive with subfolders and then access that with SONAR's Browser.

Scott
