Management sucks, obviously

Saturday, August 20, 2016

Managing this project is mostly unwieldy. Or, i have it down to a process, but it’s time consuming. After generating a final mix, I have to track the order of all these files as they need to be released in series. Alphabetic won’t cut it. I have all these things tracked in a LibreOffice doc, and added a series column I can sort by. However, Logic X and Ozone just produce the filename, as I don’t know the release order as I create songs. So I created a little Ruby script to parse the spreadsheet and rename the files in order. Pretty nice, as I can decide at the zero hour after months of writing how to release and quickly re-order everything. Yippee. Coming soon, a really cool new idea I had for releasing the album. Exciting!
