Say you’ve chopped up a drum break and want all the kicks laid out next to one another, the snares together, the hats etc… Organize Samples organizes the samples in your instrument based on their name.
I don’t know how to do the nifty animated screenshots so I’ll just post a series.
You have to do one piece of prep work for this to be useful: you have to name the samples.
Step 1. Name your samples
At this point, you could organize the first few samples to set the order you want… but I find it easier to run the tool twice. The first will group everything, which lets you easily see the groups and set the order that you want.
Step 2. Run “Organize Samples” to group the samples
Now your samples are organized by name - nice!
Step 3. Set your order and run again…
Now that you can easily see the sample groups, you can specify the order by arranging the sample names at the top of the list:
Run it again, and everything is grouped and sorted just the way you want it!
