Vic, maybe this idea for basic GUI

- Option to select number of files to be randomly selected
- Display list of selected files with preview for each file
- Option to keep or discard file
- Option to re-random (run again) unmarked files
- Option to save final selection in sequentially numbered folder in source folder

Thereafter all processing  and organising done within additional software

Oh! One last thing. How many random files should be selected by default? (your personal preference )

Ideally, option to select 16, 32, 48, 64. This is because the hardware I use (Novation Launchpad, Atom SQ and Atom) are all based on a grid where multiples of 8 are the norm. However, "8" is rarely enough for me! Depending on the musical context either 16 or 64 are most common.

Edit: Let's say 16 as default, with option for 64

That would be fantastic publicdomain! My curated sample collection consists purely of wav, flac, ogg and very rarely mp3. The ability to be able to preview files before committing to a sub-folder would be very useful but can imagine that will possibly be problematic - especially as my sound uses an external sound interface using asio. Thank you for your interest!

As a musician I sometimes like to work with sample sounds (mostly found sounds) to use within an improvised music project. Music software is a bit lacking in this area. I use usb midi interfaces and control surfaces to trigger sounds. The control surfaces I use provide options for up to 64 sounds.

I wonder if it is possible to create a basic script or app with simple GUI that allows random selection of common music files (wav, ogg, flac) from a single directory and copies the file into a sub-folder. An option say to select the number of files is important. Also, perhaps, the ability to read file tags and comments would be fantastic.

Why random files? It helps avoid repetition of choice, and is often inspirational. Also, working through 35,000 files can be very dull!
