Sound Kits Folder, Why By Brand And Not Genre?

  • #64900


    So I see a zillion people selling soudkits, I loved your production folder course but a small curiosity, I probably know the answer but why do you recommend organizing it by Vendor, I understand why you don’t want to do it just by sound but why not by Genre? Some vendors sell kits for hiphop, reggaeton, edm etc… so if the producer is in the mood for a reggae beat lets say, wouldn’t it be easier to go to reggae soundkits? as compared to vendor xyz? thanks for your time!

    Hey Emmanuel!

    Thanks for watching the A Specific Music Production Folder course which is all about creating a custom music folder for music production that is organized and efficient!

    Obviously you can organize your stuff however you want.. but I’ve found that organizing sound kits by Vendor, and throwing in each drum kit you buy into that particular Vendor’s folder, just allows for the easiest organization.

    Over time, you will KNOW where your sounds are.  That’s a part of being a music producer!  It’s like if you are a construction worker and you have a tool pouch.. each tool gets its own area, and you know where they are when you want it.

    Sure, there are “sample managers”, or you can try to organize your sound kits by “genre”, but I’ve just found organizing by Vendor is easiest because since I don’t have millions of sounds (and I don’t recommend that either for my students.. as it’s all about VARIETY and QUALITY which you will learn in SAFE SPOTS), I can easily remember where I can go for a certain style of sound, if that makes sense.

    If you want to buy another drum kit from that vendor, you can easily look to see if you already own it!

    I hope you are enjoying the Drum Bundle TRIO sounds.. lots of versatility in there!

    Again, do what you want that works best for you..

    As long as you have a music folder, with a DRUM KITS folder, that will be the biggest takeaway from the course for organization for you 🙂


    Awesome. Thank you for your answer I understand and agree with your approach I was just curious.

    No problem, always feel free to ask a question.. that’s what it’s here for!

    Again, the drum kit organization approach is just what I like to do.. the industry has changed in terms of “marketing” on how they sell sound kits, but I personally like to purchase a single drum kit as I find it provides the most versatility as a music producer.
