The other day I was previewing a bunch of Halion Presets and getting annoyed by the workflow of jotting down the names of possible choices. Then I realized that I could make this a lot easier using MediaBay.
First I created a custom Y/N Attribute called “OK-ish?”
Then I set MediaBay to “Allow Editing in Results List”
This now lets me mark any preset that has potential and then use the Logical Filter to list only those presets after I’m finished previewing.
Once a final selection is made I can clear all the OK-ish? tags.
This works fine in the MediaBay. The only problem is that using the full MediaBay is not a very good way to preview presets on an existing Instrument Track. That is much better done using the (unnamed?) MediaBay variant that opens when you click on the Program field on an Instrument Track’s Inspector. However in this view it doesn’t let me change the OK-ish? field, although changing Ratings works. There doesn’t seem to be anyway to allow editing in the results from this view. So close, but…
