    Funny...I was sketching a few songs out on post-it notes, but wish I had exactly this same thing handy. So BUMP! Help us poor souls out, please.

    This may or may not help...

    I put notes directly into the DAW. ProTools has a space below each track where I enter notes about the associated gear for that track. There's also a general information window where things like reverbs and FX boxes can be documented. This way the notes stay with each session and get backed up with them.

    What do you record with and does it give you the option to add notes like this? If so, that's what I'd recommend.

    Although it isn't out yet, this looks very promising.

    Aren't Excel templates fairly easy to make?

    Doh! I just checked and Ableton allows you to enter notes on tracks. Never noticed that before. Thanks for the pointer!

    Sonar has a Description field in the Track Properties for that purpose as well.

    I know about the comment section on PT and most of the DAW's but if you record on one daw and mix in another then it will be handy to have other type of sheets. but yes you are right the notes section is very handy too. Just its a diffrent scenario for what i'm going to use it.
