We all know our session is going to become quite messy before too long. We are so busy being creative and laying down ideas, that we forget to be organized in the process. It is vital to keep you session clean and tidy in order to find what you are looking for. Now that you've created several audio tracks, it is time to organize them into folders. You can organize them by any number of categories of your choosing. Most commonly by instrument group, like drums or vocals. However, you are able to include any type of track into a folder, including other folders. Let's go ahead and organize our session. I'm going to select these two tracks and put them under the Drums, Rename these tracks, and put them into a folder.
That's right click > Add Track > Add Folder Track, Drag this to the top. Select these tracks and Drag them into the folder. Now let's name this, (SOUND), I'm also going to change the color of this folder. Let's go over here and pick color number four. Let's go down to the Drums, Shakers and Congas. Another way to change the folder color is by going over here and clicking on Option or Alt. Another way to add things into folders is by doing the following, select the tracks you want to go into the folder.
Go to Project > Track Folding > Move Selected Tracks to New Folder, let's name this. To remove tracks from a folder, simply drag them out. We're going to put this back in. You can Show or Hide folder tracks by expanding and collapsing them, by going over here. You can have folders within folders. Simply create more folder tracks and drag the desired tracks s discussed before. I usually like to create a master track. I'm going to do that now. Drag this to the top, Grab my two folders.
Going to Drag them in here and name this Master. Let's expand these folders. We should also note that we have these familiar buttons here in the folders, Mute and Solo. These will act as a group. If you solo them, every track in the folder will get soloed, as well as mute, excellent. Creating folders in Cubase allows us to stay organized and structure tracks in our project window. Bu grouping tracks into folders, we can Solo and Mute them as a unit. They will give us a much better overview of our projects, especially when the track count starts to grow.
