Traktor Organization

The topics of organizing songs get discussed over and over again, and the same arguments have not gone away with the times.  What has changed it the way in which we are able to organize songs so effortlessly, if you choose to have it this way – in fact there are programs being developed all the time with the simple purpose of helping you organize your songs, the many thousands of songs you have sitting on your computer in folders whose whereabouts are unknown.  If you really want to get intimate with your music, the oldest option is still the best option.  Sit down and listen to your songs, title them, and name them.  This will give you complete control.

For those who do not have the time to do this (which is most of us), you need a better method to gain a footing on what you have in your collection.  iTunes, as unfortunate as it may be, is still one of the best methods of keeping track of your songs.  The only problem is that you have little choice over how your want your folders organized, which means tree and trees of folders.  If you are able to stand iTunes, then your playlists should be well organized within Traktor.
