Option to rename samples when renaming pad
I'm fussy about file names. boom808-2567842, an example auto-created file name from the slicer, isn't convenient for remembering what it is. One can rename the pad to something like boom808-BD, but the corresponding sample remains cryptic. If you do rename the sample, the song/bank will fail to find it on reopen.
So my suggestions:
- Have an option to save the pad name to the sample name when renaming a pad.
BUT ... I just realized that will break any other banks using the sample! So ...
- Link pads to a unique internal file handle rather than the file name and location. This will stop the continual breakage of banks and songs if samples are moved, or renamed.
- Make a check when deleting a sample whether it's used anywhere. Don't allow deletion, or throw up a "Warning!" dialog, if the sample is in use.
Oops. That makes three requests in one thread. I'll break them up if that will help. I really think the last two would help with many of what people are reporting as bugs, but are really just lost connections to samples. I'm pretty sure you have some file-handle going on in the background since the song will continue to function until closed and re-opened. So hopefully that could be preserved some way when the song or bank is saved?
