Snapshot Management: Remove all presets except current?

0 votes
Slight preset management pickle: If you don't ensure you create and overwrite on the Default snapshot to begin with, you can be left with an undesired position 1.

I would like to be able to remove all presets that I am working on, leaving the current VCS layout as the position 1. (If you use the current 'Remove all presets, the currently loaded one is removed, and the default reloaded, with no way of over writing it)

I would also like to be able to remove the Default snapshot, with the order shuffling up to replace it.

Does this make any sense? Thanks, Charlie.

Yea, am now in a situation, where snapshot number 3 is Default, can't be removed. Going to have to try and update it to match my other ones. Or else when it cycles around I get the unwanted state.

You could try this:

Select current snapshot;

Rename preset to Default;

Remove all presets

This would leave the Default (which is now set to your target preset).

As you add other snapshots you could try renaming them to Default2, Default3, etc to ensure that Default is the first one.

When using presets on a live performance I usually name my presets with prefix 01foo...02foo etc... This ensures that they have a name that describes the preset and an option to smoothly progress through various different combinations of parameters. This also helps to keep the InterpolatedPresets-sound in a useful state that can be tweaked if needed.
