Description

This tool changes the colors of grouped tracks according to their group color and applies different shades.
Group member colors change whenever their group color changes or when a track is inserted/moved into a group.
Vice versa, when a new group is inserted, its color will be changed according to the member track it was inserted to. 
The tool adds Menu entries as follows:

 

Main Menu:Tools:Auto Track Colors Config... :

Opens the configuration GUI where the tool´s behavior can be tweaked.
Parameter values are stored in the tools´s preferences file.

 

Pattern Editor:Set All Track Colors From Group and Mixer:Set All Track Colors From Group :

Changes the colors of all grouped tracks according to their group color and applies different shades.

 

Usecases
If you tend to have your track colors similar to their group color but do not want to set them manually all the time, this tool can save you some work.

It's one way to keep tracks in groups visually organized.
