I have every song duplicated on Beat Buddy. One in a set list folder and one again stored in an Alphabetical type folder. This way when performing live, if I get a song request I can leave the current set list folder and go to my alphabetical song folder and locate the target song.
Since you can only store a limited number of songs in a folder and searching a very large folder would be very time consuming during a gig. I’ve created multiple alphabetical folders. Example I have folders ABC DEFG HIJK LMN OPQ RST UVWXYZ
issues with this:
- More work for me
- Doubled storage
- If I change a stored song I have to remember to change in both folders
In my view the songs should only exist physically once in a set list and be indexed into a master alphabetical indexed folder or multiple alphabetical folders like my example if there is some number of songs constraint per folder reason or it may be too time consuming for us to search through hundreds of songs alphabetically in a live situation. The multiple alphabetical folders do allow me speed to locate my songs quickly in live situations.
