Create song and sound folder shortcuts in the finder.

Here’s a quick tip that may save you a few thousand mouseclicks over a year period. This will work for any folder you use often. Since we are musicians let’s focus on our song and sounds folders.

Drop those into your Mac’s finder window under “Places”. This maybe obvious but if your not already doing it give it a try and see how useful it is. I like to keep all my most used folders alphabetized. If I am working on a massive project which I know I will need fast access to for a few days Ill drop it in the Places area temporarily. This gets really useful when your inside Open/Save dialog boxes or dragging things in and out of folders from your desktop.

Remember the better your workflow the less time it will take you to get from idea to composition.
