I am attempting to start organising my .WAV/.AIFF samples by using Tags. Unfortunately the app I want to use them in, does not support Tags. I'd like to spend a few days setting up my 100gb+ sample archive using Tags, and then somehow figure out a way of showing them using the app that doesn't support Tags.
So far I've tried to look at the Finder Status Bar, while in a Tag "folder" to see if there's a path I could paste into the Terminal, and then open up - i.e., a "physical" location for the Tag "Folder". I haven't figured out how. The app that doesn't support Tags does have a way of going into even hidden folders, just by selecting "Go To Folder".
But I'm not sure how to use that knowledge to then dig up where I should inform the app to go.
I've just created a Smart Folder that only shows files Tagged with that specific Tag. However, this seems to be a file with the extension .savedSearch - so I'm not sure how to access that "folder" via the Terminal, figure out it's path and paste that onto the App that doesn't support Tags or Smart Folders.
Also, if I drag a Tag to the Terminal, it will show up as a .savedSearch too, but unfortunately I cannot access that either.
So, how do I organise my files using Tags so that I can access them on apps that have no support for Tags? I don't want to physically move the files around as that will take me months and months to do, time is limited as it is already.
Edit: Nope, I don't want to create tags or smart folders using Terminal, just access them just like if it were a regular folder.
