Is there a way to rename a group of selected tracks?
When working on some parts, I tend to add midi and audio tracks quickly and then prefer to go back and rename them after recording.
So, I’ll add, say, five MIDI tracks
and then go back and rename them –
Is there a way to do this in Cubase? I tried the “append date” macro but either I don’t understand how to use it (likely) or it’s not doing what I’d like it to do. If the Operations Manual explains this, I’ve not been able to parse it.
Also, on the Audio Output Tracks, the names assigned are rather arbitrary and need to be renamed and colors assigned for grouping clarity.
Re: Audio Outputs:
Groove Agent assigns names one way, HESS uses another convention, Loop Mash yet another. Other multi-out instruments use other output names and need to be re-named and re-colored when setting up a mix. I understand that Templates need to become my friend here I guess. I know I need to develop better templates and more track archives, but, nevertheless, I’d still like to be able to batch re-name a set of selected tracks. Is there a way to do this?
Also, can we sort tracks by name, re-number them and sort tracks by track number? You get the idea… (Other programs I’ve used in the past did track sorting and renaming very well and I miss it).
As always, any tips, references or general thoughts about track sorting, renaming and general Track Name management – MIDI and Audio greatly appreciated. Thanks.
