I’ve noticed a weird phenomenon over the years when it comes to audio projects.
Somehow, some way, Logic projects will turn into a rat’s nest of disorganization.
Maybe you’re better than me. But try as I may, my aspirations for organization somehow go out the window midway through a recording or writing session.
Everything starts well enough! I try staying on top of my name and color schemes.
But when ideas spark the creative fire, somehow staying organized falls out of my thoughts.
So these days I have a very strict policy for organizing my Logic sessions. Since I’m handling projects not just for myself, but for clients too, I can’t chance losing things.
Years from now a client or artist will say (it already happens):
“Hey! Any chance can I get some of the stems from that one song we did 5 years ago?”
If I had stuck to my old, bad disorganized habits, I’d have to try and find those stems in a mess of:
- “Riff 2”
- “Ah Ha 43”
Ugh… that’s painful to admit.
Now I’m a total fanatic about organizing my Logic Pro sessions. And you should be as well.
So in today’s video I share my particular workflow for organizing in LPX:
- Specific naming structures for projects
- Auto-coloring tracks
- Naming tracks for easy recognition
- Adding Icons
- Cutting Dead Space
- Using Markers so you know where you are in the mix
How do you choose to organize your LPX projects? I’d love to hear in the comments below.
