Often when revisiting older projects, tracks with a lot of samples, I find myself right clicking the instrument list, selecting ‘delete unused instruments’ to see which instruments are already used and which aren’t. Then ctrl+z to bring the deleted samples back. Of course you can also listen, but having to play a song back, muting & un-muting tracks gets tedious quickly.
I like preventing too much repetition and keep things fresh, introducing new samples over time. Being able to see what has already been used and what not would help with this kind of administration . The deleting of unused instruments and undoing of this action works, but you sometimes have to remember a lot of unused instruments. It would be better if the sample name could get altered through a tool, maybe through adding some kind of symbol at the start of the instrument name.
Anyone willing and able to cook this up?
I know about the ‘organize instruments by…’ tool, which lets you order the instrument list by ‘most used’, but this shuffles the complete instrument list order and I’d like to keep the order intact!
