[Catalyst] Beginner Question: Controller Layout

Hello list,

I am at the point of starting a new project and have yet to choose a
controller layout.

my application is a site where:

music bands can
-   register
-   fill out (and later edit) a profile
-   upload pictures and songs
-   schedule events which will be displayed on a calendar

visitors can
-   browse all of the above information
-   register to a newsletter

admins can
-   edit all of the above stuff

Well, I suppose you get the picture. I am hoping to get some guidance
here from someone who has experience

One solution that comes to my mind would be to make a controlller for
each role (admin, band, visitor)
another one would be to make a controller for each type of media
(songs, pictures, band, ...)

Either way I am not able to tell which one is most suitable beforehand.

thanks in advance
