Subject:Group events to meta-event

Here's a suggestion:

I'd like to group events - snippets of different length, sample starting points, spaces between them etc. (all of the same track) - , so that this group of events, the "meta-event", can then be pasted, cut, dragged, resized etc. like one single event.

If I'm right, what I _already_ can do in AP5 is group (=select) a number of events to drag, copy, transpose or delete them. But I also would like to paint, "slip", "slip-trim" and "slide" that "meta-event", probably using a dedicated editing tool.

What do you think?

And yeah, if it already can be done and I simply didn't realize how - please let me know.

The only way to do this is to render the group to a new track (Ctrl+M) thus making it one big event. ACID can only edit a single event at a time.

I have the feeling that this could involve the folder tracks in some clever way... but it could require a lot of head scratching to make it user-friendly.

not really. .. just look at the folder tracks in Cubase SX... you can chuck all your tracks in there and then move stuff around.. that would be a nice feature in future [?] version of ACid...

Doesn't sound like a bad idea. The best way to deal with slipping, etc. right now is to do what JohnnyRoy mentioned; render those events to a new track.

Be sure, as always, that if you have a suggestion, to fill out the Product Suggestion form. They don't respond, but they do listen.
