Renaming... Sample/waveform preset?

Ok, I have a bit of a weird question.

What if I was so OCD about keeping my projects clean (asking for a friend, right…) that I needed to rename this (red circle)…

…without having to save/delete presets or copy things into new instrument or anything. Just a quick rename, like in the parts marked in green.

Is there any way I can do that? If I load up a project done in an older version of Renoise, it’s automatically clear (“Init”). With the new version, it always keeps whatever filenames I (err… I mean my friend…) had in the folder.

Bumping this.

I’m aware it’s not a top-priority bug fix by any means (not even sure whether there will be a final update or such) but it still annoys me, after having gotten used to ‘cleaning’ cluttered texts from my projects since, well, pretty much the 1995 FastTracker days.

It’s annoying seeing a sample named “__quick-n-shitty-reocrding-_test11” up there, in an otherwise surgically organized project…

Saine, I’m not really saying that this helps at all, but what I found is that if you click on ‘Save Preset As…’ and then click cancel to that dialog, ‘Delete Preset’ option should become available, click that, then click yes, and that might bring the preset back to ‘Init*’.

It works! icon_clownstep.gif

Yeah, sure, it’s a quirky workaround (would make more sense if the delete preset option was available straight away) but… It works! Thank you :slight_smile: I thought I had tried that, but apparently, I hadn’t. Awesome :slight_smile:

Reviving old topic here - not a top priority one, just annoying.

A few versions ago the workaround suggested by @4tey still worked, but no longer does = can’t get the “delete preset” option to be shown anymore.

I know one out of a gazillion people are bothered by something like this, but just bumping this in case a fix is out there.

What the issue is:

If I have a bunch of samples named “grammys_diarrhea_just_reached_level_10----pleasenotenewrecordingversionsopleasedeletetheoldversionok###TEMP.WAV” it annoys me that the text will always be shown, when the project file is just trying to be cool and low key.

I can remove it (so it just says “Init”) by selecting the entire range (of the sample) and clicking “Copy Into New Instrument” and then matching all the sample settings, but this is a hassle. :slight_smile:

Can you post a screenshot of exactly what you are talking about?

My mind keeps going straight to Control-R or Right-Click -> Rename, but I have a feeling that is not applicable to the specific scenario you are describing.

Edit: You’re talking about the Sample Presets

Like in this drop down menu on the far-bottom-right?

Yup! That’s the one :+1:t2:

Basically it’d just need to default as Init* like in the older versions - or have the ability to clear the name / delete preset (but keep the sample).
