Usage

Insert media files as item on existing similarly named tracks or and new tracks

A file called “Guitar.wav” will go on track named “Guitar” or on new track if non exists.

Importing file on named track is the core concept of this pack.

Insert media files as item on existing similarly named tracks or and new tracks (parent track prefix support)

A file named “+BUS+ Guitar” will go on a track called “Guitar” under the parent track named “BUS” if it already exists.

Works with parent tracks.

Insert media files on a named track or on similarly named tracks

This aims to replace the default Import Media action, by allowing you to either import on a single named track, or to fallback on “Insert media files as item on existing similarly named tracks or and new tracks (parent track prefix support)”.

Choose one or the other behavior.

Custom Patterns

With patterns, you can pre-process file name to do partial matching, for eg, to match all Guitar_01.wav type of files be imported in sequence on the Guitar track.

You can change default patterns used in these scripts (for finding parent track for eg), by creating a Preset script and putting the User Config Area variable of the original script into it. More info on preset script doc page.

EDIT (2024-05-06): The scripts have been updated to have a user popup to let you input filters.

New filter popup.
