It’s my hope by asking questions 10 different ways to Sunday, I’ll gain both knowledge and wisdom to help me in my ripping project, and maybe give you ideas as well. These are some maybe questions that didn’t really fit in any of the other threads, but I still could use your opinions as to whether these are worth worrying about... Such as, whether you keep tracks separate, or in some cases they absolutely HAVE to be tied together, such as the instrumental intros that go before the Boston and Steve Miller hits, but have a separate title? Or those all those Zappa live albums where the songs change with no air between them, like all the Stevie Wonder albums? And we all assume, you HAVE to keep each track of the Side Two medley together, right...(or does “Her Majesty“ occupy her own throne)(and, with or without the long pause...)? Of course, "customizing" tracks ends up playing holy-hell with your tags, and it sometimes means doing them over to reflect your changes. I’ve done a lot of “post-producing” on album tracks to separate them aside from the way they’re presented on the record; sometimes Joe Jackson does a kick-a** medley where one track sounds just dandy all by itself, and I’ll have both versions on the server. Mine of course will always be re-labeled in the track name as my own mixes, but I'll still store them with the albums, as well as those singles and tracks that were released as b-sides under the umbrella of the albums era. I’ve done some mega-mixes specifically for cassette, one of which I faithfully recreated (perhaps tighter, better quality on a workstation), using extended mixes, segue’d transitions, beat-to-beats, and morphing back and forth between live and studio versions. I did it in .wav, but only had an mp3 player to play it in at the time; obviously that’s gonna have to stay in some mp3 dumping ground on my server, unless I can locate the original .wav some day on an older hard drive. If you were proud of a work like that, would you put it in with actual albums or an artist folder, or keep it separately as your own personal work? In some cases, I’ll have the altered version set aside (like a single), and keep the other one either with the album it belongs on, or in my “third” folder (first folder “go-to” tracks, second folder “GenPop” in other words, everything I would listen to, and third folder, the extras, duplicated tracks in perhaps lesser mixes, and everything else I wanted to have SOMEwhere but just didn’t want to have available to listen to all the time). And yes, I'm saying some of this stuff all over again, but hoping to keep it relevant to the threads they're in, so some points don't have to be spread all over the five threads and render them babble. Thanks for understanding!
