Description:automatic audio sample-tagging for lazy artists: converts audiosample-directories into symbolically linked trees sorted on tags (kick/hihat/etc)
Author:coderofsalvation

Automatic audio sample-tagging for lazy artists. This bash-script converts audiosample-directories into symbolically linked trees sorted on tags (kick/hihat/etc)

The tags are based on wildcards. For example, in the script a tag like:

 tags["clap"]="clap|klapp|clp"

will create a directory 'clap' which creates symlinks to all files which filename match 'clap' 'klapp' or 'clp'. Basically this is what most people do manually when they use sample-organizers..but with this script it goes automatically.

Why is this handy and why is this made? The author was maintaining huge amount of samples, and wasnt satisfied with the sample-organizer applications. They all had one thing in common: it is labourous to keep your directories up to date with the application's tag-based database.

So, as with many things in lifeā€¦a simple bashscript + a cronjob can do magic.

WARNING: not for the fainthearted, bit knowledge about bash is required.
