I have noticed that when you do have a touch device like a tablet you tend to acquire muscle memory and often want to touch when touch is unavailable. I think this will accelerate the move to touch when touch monitors are competitive with non touch monitors.

You can also rename multiple clips at once with the Inspector.

Wouldn't it be great to right click on a clip, and select "rename clip" . . . perhaps someday.




That's how it used to be. right click, properties, name.
I guess they had to make it better so they could make it worse so they could make it better again.

Yeah, perhaps Cakewalk's next flagship product (labeled something other than Sonar so that it doesn't fall under the lifetime updates umbrella) will add back some of the functionality they took away.

Re: Fastest way to rename clip? 2016/09/27 09:34:53 (permalink)
I like the inspector in general, but would like a faster method for renaming a clip. I'll admit that renaming clips frequently in SPLAT can be a little tedious for me.

So I have a suggestion that fits the Windows paradigm. How about these new steps:

- select clip (or clips)
- press F2 to open dialog box
(appearing next to cursor with text highlighted/selected)
- rename clip(s)
- press enter/return

Hi, I'd like to share this I've found past week (I'm using CbB 2018.06).
If one hits 'Play' on a project he will be able to rename a clip by right clicking over it. That will open a menu with the 'Rename clip' option. :  )

Good spot!
 
I wonder why it's only available when the project is playing though?
 
Seems a bit odd

Yes, when I tried to use it again it didn't show on the context menu. It took a while to figure it out.

Just went back to Splat & sure enough you can do it there too. Don't see it in X1, 2, or 3.
 
A better way would be to just double-click the clip name itself, making it edit-ready, then simply type the new name.

Given the location of the function and lack of documentation, it appears to be an incomplete implementation that was developed after X3 and before 2017-01. My guess is the dev was called away to work on something else and this code managed to sneak into production. I filed a report on it.

The rename option being available only during play was a bug - its been fixed for the next release.
Also I changed it so that for new users by default double click will open the clip inspector for audio clips rather than the loop construction view. (this is a preference in the track view options / click behavior)

By "fixed" I hope you mean it can now be done while stopped too....

So - overall, what is the value of clip naming? Is this an OCD fix? - or does this naming extend to raw file naming for file storage? I never really felt a need to identify specific clips as I tent to bounce to clips quite often to condense file overhead.

I use the clip (re)naming when I produced a clip (audio or midi) outside of CbB after importing. Then I append the creation/update date to the clip name to know later on which version it is.

... many years before ...

True, it would be VERY nice if bouncing a clip RETAINED it's name so we're not constantly renaming it.

Bounce a single clip does retain the clip name. Also exporting with source category clips will export and retain clip naming as far as possible.

The value of clip naming?
 
It's critical sometimes in certain comping situations. I might want to cut up a track and rearrange it in different order and want to name the different clips I've created Intro A, Fill A, Fill B, Fill C, etc. so as not to lose track of them. Not all my projects happen in the same session where I can keep all of the pieces in my head.
 
I've also had situations where audio has been imported and then the song name has changed, and you might consider it "OCD" to rename the clips, but it can prevent confusion that saves time and accidents, so the easier it is to do it, the better.

Re: Fastest way to rename clip? 2018/09/27 14:47:56 (permalink)
So, I have a bunch of clips in a track, each with a unique name. When I look at the individual files in the audio folder they are all named "<track name> (Bounced, XXX)". Is there a way to get them to retain the clip name? Is this a setting somewhere?
