[COSMOS] Avoid rescanning samples after relocating libraries


Currently, COSMOS does the following:

  1. Add a folder of samples to COSMOS
  2. Wait until COSMOS automatically scans and tags every sample in it
  3. Move the folder to another directory
  4. In COSMOS sidebar, click relocate button to point COSMOS to the new directory
  5. COSMOS starts scanning and applying tags from scratch

I think this is suboptimal, especially considering the scanning process can be long and CPU-intensive.

When I used ADSR Sample Manager before, after a folder is scanned then changed, it would somehow be able to recognize the folder as “already scanned and analyzed” as soon as I point it to the new directory. Perhaps some database work, I don’t have a clear idea.

I would love to see this feature come to COSMOS some time in the future.
