Editing Program Names/Categories

Post by LevelSongD » Thu Oct 24, 2013 1:51 am

Hi,
I have a bunch of 3rd-party libraries and not all of them adhere to the Nebula program name conventions. I have the standard categories like Tape, EQ, Reverb, etc, but alongside them I have the AlexB and CDSoundmaster libraries, which (god bless them, they're awesome, but they) use their own naming schemes.

I want to rename, for example, AlexB's Modern Black EQ so that it falls into Nebula's "EQ" category. How do I go about this? Is there a program/utility that can help?

I know there's an option to rename on the first page of the "edit" menu of a patch, but it only allows 3 letters (no parenthetical description), and when I entered 3 letters and saved the patch, the letters disappeared and the patch is now in the ( ) category. Any help or pointers here would be great, thanks!

In NAT you can edit categories and subcategories.
In nebulatemprepository click Nat exe and then List. In List Add the presets you want to edit.

Alternatively, you can use setups based approach. Make separate plugins with custom program list (one for eq, other for comp etc.). This way different naming conventions will not be disturbing anymore.

Yes, Zab's got it right; the best way is to use Nebula SetUps, so you can customize them anyway you want. Loading is much faster too, so it's good for the workflow.
