    As far as I see the 3.0 tries to handle this situation with file naming and searching features in some degree. However it hardly improves the situation of having a single folder that holds all samples recorded internally as well as resampled ones and including those shits that are never used :)

    posted about this here too but would like to expand on my ideal solution. http://forums.synthstrom.com/discussion/comment/9566#Comment_9566

    The search or tags in songs and presets are fine but a folder solution is really needed for sample management. Seems logical then that the solution could be generalized for song/presets.

    when you hit load or browse you should see

    In the above image you can see file 1 in the root of folder 3 selected. Should be able to scroll through the rightmost layer with the up/down knob. Color reflects sample length/cpu load per voice of a synth/number of clips in a kit/song.

    hit the left on a folder to select and display contents. hit the right pad to see the name only.

    hit the left pad on a sample/preset to select and audition, hit the right pad to select without audition. hold both to see the waveform.

    At any time you should be able to toggle the keyboard button to enter qwerty search for the current folder/subfolders.

    with a file/folder selected we should be able to use the load(Copy)/new and Save(paste, move, rename)/delete buttons. No reason you shouldnt be able to move copy or delete multiple files at once either.

    Press the select button to load/slice the file and enter/multisample the folder as we do now.

    Again moving a file around should be reflected in the songs/presets that use that file.

    full sample management with no computer and much less wear on the select knob.

    edit folder 3

    It’s reallh needed to organise synth presets!!

    Folders for pads/leads/bass/etc are absolutely essential!

    Sub menus are really needed as well as a simple collect and save function as mentioned before in here .. BUT I STILL LOVE MY DELUGE LOL

    @rcz i like the idea of using the grid for sample and preset browsing.
    about tags, just came to my mind:
    writing and typing textual tags is a bit a pain.
    what if presets and maybe also samples could be tagged with colors.
    audition/mute columns could be used to set 0-N colors for a file and filter a folder by colors.
    for example color blue for a all bass sounds, purple for lead sounds, or orange for a 3rd party preset collection.
    does not fit so much for samples though I guess.

    Thanks, really like how this would use the mute/audition pads. You should be able to set the color tag to whatever you want.

    I'd love to see folders implemented. Scrolling through presets is very slow while a track is playing, especially if the sound is trying to load samples too.

    I love the pad/colors/matrix to folders for browsing idea. No idea how it would/could be implemented, but the idea of nearly instant access from the grid-pad is brilliant. Folders, section markers? I don't mind as long as I don't have to scroll through 200 patches just to get where I want to be.
