Colour code midi presets
« on: July 01, 2021, 03:54:52 AM »
With regard
to automation entries being edited.
Is there any possibility midi presets can be colour coded?
Perhaps a colour dropdown similar to that used in song details.
I can see this as such a time saver in the automation editing process.
Cheers

Can you give an example of how you would use this?

I already have tags for MIDI presets on my wish list. I can imagine that categories would be a similar approach.

Well currently I have automation for lyrics, moving the page up so that the current verse is at the top of the display
which means it’s hard to get lost.
Then there are midi presets which turn various effects on and off.
All of those entries are “white” which means sorting through preset titles, I could imagine just looking at only yellow entries
knowing they are all lights, blue being effects … etc., instantly narrowing the target entry.
Even using time to edit can be confusing with all white entries, when some of which are very close.
The most edited presets for me are lights, and this would really help.
