What is the problem?
Many interesting Play’s features work only if folders’ names are respected. For example, kicks should be placed in “Kicks” folder, or else you won’t be able to use relevant fills. However, not every sample pack have the same way of folder organization.
What do you want to achieve?
It would be great if Play could recognize some filename’s patterns and propose to sort them automatically. For example, if user loads a folder, all the files with “kick” in their names could be interpreted as “kicks” automatically (and placed in a relevant project folder). It could be especially usable when all the samlpes of different types are in the same folder by default.
It could have some json-like file, so player could add his own rules for interpretation.
Are there any workarounds?
Otherwise, user should organize his sample library especially for Play’s needs. Doable, but tedious.
