Does anyone know if I can repack the folders and listen to my takes & comps ? Or will that not make a difference.
You can re-pack a take folder:
Select all the separate regions then use Region:Folder:Pack Take Folder
You might find some benefit from deleting the used tracks afterwards
Well, when I get to a fifth or sixth take of a guitar part, I usually think I'd better stop and think about what it is exactly that I want and work on it for a while more before I go for another recording.
Of course, I can see there might be possibilities with improvised music, where you might be able to use parts of, or whole different takes over the course of a piece of music, but you still have to go back to a basic idea about what exactly you want to achieve and whether what you're doing is working - 52 takes just doesn't sound right to me, but maybe you do have a credible explanation.
CCT has given you the way to look at it, anyway - I tend to keep things as simple as possible in my Arrange window, so I think about creating different parts, sometimes as project files of their own; it means that I've got controllable stuff when I get to the mixing stage.
