Community Tip - Keep Your Studio Organised.

With the support of iLok, more tips & tricks from the community. Here is one from Joe Teresi….
I know this sounds stupid, but sometimes can be overlooked. I recently took “everything” apart. Every chord, cable, patch chord …whatever, and wrapped them neatly with twist ties. I also neatly labeled All my physical inputs and out puts, so I’m ready for any recording situation. I went out and purchased two “3 Drawer” Storage containers like this one….

I keep spare guitar chords and MIC chords in one drawer, adapters in another and so on. Now, I can find things quick and they are just 1 step away from me. All of this has made my work flow increase dew to just being ready for anything at all times without having to make anybody wait until I find “that extra guitar chord” or something. Well, thanks guys! If this community tip helps at least one person, then it was worth it.
Mike - I have a similar drawer unit in my studio but I got it from Ikea. Mine is discontinued now but there are these two are similar, the one the left is called ERIK and the one on the right is called GALANT.
