8 Non-Audio Apps to Help Run Your Audio Business
 
I just wrote a new article for The Pro Audio Files that outlines some good non-audio apps you can use to help run your audio business.

Maybe one or some of these will be of interest to you and help you become more efficient, organized, profitable, or just save you some time.

I'm glad you found it useful.

CCC is amazing. Somebody pointed out that I forgot to mention one of its main features which is cloning your entire OS drive incase it fails, and you can be back up and running in no time.

Thankfully I've never had to try that and when it comes to new OS drives, I tend to prefer starting from scratch rather than potentially load in or restore a bunch of potential issues via Time Machine or CCC.

I do love having all my app settings backed up though to help make that process faster.

recommended! thx

wow, great indeed–I just got at least a year back of future life spent resizing the columns in finder after I install Total Finder. The other apps sound great as well.

I was planning my ios exit though after my current 6+, you see yourself staying long term? hard to get away from cloud sharing, etc. I must admit

Yeah, I can't believe that after all these years, Apple hasn't figured out the auto-column resizing thing. It's my preferred way to navigate files and if you do mastering or something where there is a lot of fast paced file management, this is a real time saver...that and the ability to bring back full color labels to file and folder names instead of that little tiny dot makes Total Finder essential for me.

Before the announcement of the iMac Pro I was strongly considering leaving Apple and going to Windows but they've sucked me back in.

Whatever OS you use, it's nice when you can have a lot of synchronicity between devices and at this point I'm too busy far down the Apple rabbit hole to make a change.
