Keeping track of SPD-SX samples

Hi all,
More and more lately I'm doing gigs heavily reliant on samples loaded into my spd-sx. Sometimes it's repeat gigs where I really have time to internalize everything, sometimes it's quicker stuff where I have less practice & rehearsal time. My problem is that on these gigs, every track often has a whole new set of samples to keep track of. My charts always have a map of which sample is on which pad, but these often aren't gigs where I can have charts on stage. It gets to be a lot to keep track of.

Does anyone have any tricks for remembering what you put where in prep for a gig? Appreciate the help!

Not really, as I only use probably a dozen samples in 20 odd songs on a gig.
Maybe group your samples and pads by type? So always put melodic sample across the top row? Any kicks on pad 1, snares on pad 2.
Put percussion on the same pads for every song featuring percussion samples?

I put white tape down the sides/top/bottom and on the pads with a note as to what it is. Write the "Kit" number on the tape as well.
easy to remove as well.
