Categories renaming in NAT

Postby Grim » Mon Nov 14, 2011 7:12 pm

Have been trying to organise my libraries better within the preset menu by renaming, recatorising etc using NAT

I found that there were presets I kept overlooking because of their placement in the list or even because I forget what they were because of their non-descriptive naming!

Now,not sure if I am missing something or if this isn't possible, but is there any way to edit a list of programs imported to NAT without having to edit every entry individually?
I thought maybe the export csv would allow me to edit externally so I could use a decent editor's replace functions etc, but I can't see any way to make this work.

Has anyone been able to do this or know another way to achieve the same thing.

Thanks.
Grim.

i was suggesting this long time ago, but it is still one by one.
i trained a habit of copy and paste, while going through the list, but it is really a pain, with big librarys :roll:

i don't know if there is a solution planned ....

giancarlo?

in the meantime, click your way through :lol:

Same here.I did that when I purchased Nebula.Each and everyone manually.The good thing is that you learn what you got (commercial library).I organized it by brand and gear model. That's the way I like to work.

The second "good thing" is that Giancarlo made some improvements in Nat text editing.As Mathias said it's easier now on the copy/paste/type than it used to be.

But yo,it's still a pain in the ass...

But less than having to deal with calibration,slicing tape,soldering,carrying amps and shit.So good luck (do it step by step,take your time).

Positive thing: It can be worse...you can be on MAC. ;)

which one exactly, to configure the categories of programs all together in a list style or similar approach?

i only know of creating and configuring nebulas with specific library contents, but would gladly learn, if i overlooked some tool :D

i went through the tools of zabukowski, but i don't find one, were i can read and change all categories and !subcategories easy and fast.

what i would need (and gladly pay for) is a tool, were i can see all my programs at once (this exists from zab) and then mark a bunch of programs and define a categorie !and subcategorie 1 and 2 for them.
it seems so easy, but i don't know of such.

the list in nat is perfect, but does not give me the option to mark more than one cat-field and edit the name for the marked ones in one go. this is the only thing that is missing for me.
maybe it is not hard to implement, i don't know,
but this would do the trick.

again, if someone knows better, please let me know.

I also tried all the tools & useful though they are, none of them address this specific task.

I actually decided to go back to multiple instances in the end combined with a little less NAT editing & am fairly happy with what I have.

Took me a fair while to work out why I couldn't get Neb Consoles to show in Cubase but finally realised it was not possible to have instances named Nebula Compressors & Nebula Consoles at once....must be something to do with the first 8 characters of the names making them seen as the same.
I changed Compressors to Dynamics & all good.

Thanks to Zab's NebSetups this was a lot easier than when I manually created them a few years back with individual program & vector folders for every instance.
