Once you’ve amassed a large collection of samples properly cataloging all of these sounds is critical for optimum workflow during a studio session. On Mac I’ve found a great program that handles this, AudioFinder. AudioFinder lets you catalog all of your sounds by genre, type, or project. You can then quickly search through for a particular sound, for example “hi-hats” and it will retrieve a listing of all the hi-hat sounds on your system. You can then right within the app preview the sound at any pitch or BPM and if you like it just drag and drop it right into Logic, ProTools or Ableton.
