Edit this script has now been realised, alone with the randomiser, thanks to conner_bw and Beatslaughter. For new people coming into the thread I’ll keep this updated:
I occasionally have the need to merge to songs, especially when merging seperately made verse and chorus ideas. Could a 3rd party xrns program handle this task?
The arrangement would be simple: You have file1 and file2. File1 is the selected host and file2 is considered as the import. The master effects of the host are retained. In the merge process the respective file2 amount of new channels and sends are made after the file1 channels and sends. All automations and send addresses are re-ordered to accommodate the file2 data. The pattern data from file2 is appended after the patterns of file1.
It is then up to the user and the new file to edit the merge manually to their liking, having all the data from both parent songs to meld at their fingertips.
I would program this if I had the skills, but I’m flat out being a composer. Any one think this is a juicy idea?
