A function to batch rename all selected clips/samples, including a way to number them incrementally. EDIT: I found a way to batch rename clips → select all clips and rename in the inspector. This doesn’t work for the contained samples though and doesn’t help with numbering, which is pretty important imo.
What problem(s) would this feature resolve?
When making sample libraries out of longer recordings, I often have to manually rename and number each clip. This is incredibly tedious.
How does this feature fit in Bitwig as a product?
Quite well! Workflow is an important part of bitwig and so is community - good workflows to create well-ordered shareable assets are great for everyone!
Is there already an alternative way to achieve this on Bitwig?
Could it be implemented using Bitwig components or APIs, without Bitwig team’s support?
Not trivially afaik.
Could it be provided by a VST or something else reasonably integrated with Bitwig?
Plugins don’t have access to clip names, so no.
Are there other products that offer this feature?
More traditional DAWs (Logic, Reaper) tend to have comprehensive batch processing features, including renaming.
