Are all the .asd files created by Ableton Live cluttering up your sample folder view, too? Yeah, I know – it is annoying. We need them but we don't have to see them.
An easy tip on how to hide them on a Mac:
• do a search for .asd on the root of your HD to find them anywhere
• open Terminal and type "chflags hidden" (without quotes)
• drag and drop all the .asd files that Finder found onto Terminal window
• hit Enter

Boom. Now they're hidden.

I post about other music production related stuff on my FB page – peep if ya dig!

Sounds great.
But to be sure of what i'm doing, can you explain what "chflag hidden" does ?
