please recommend a naming convention for my parameters
for easiest management via Modulator List:
(so that i can order by name easily and have things
appearing in convenient series)
-regular 4 partial structure presets, with multipart(8)
so, for example:
partial1, pitch envelope T1 for Part1 could be:
or? .. (ie: by prefix or by suffix?)
i suppose i really want them to appear grouped in
their parameter order. i guess i can just order them
by VSTIndex. it would be nice, visually, to order them
by name too. sorry for this simplistic lazy question
but i guess it’s an issue we all face, and i want to
nail it before i do a load of work and regret it afterwards
(am at fresh rebuild stage, just idly mulling this over..)
answering my own question again.
easiest way is evidently prefix. makes it much easier/quicker
to replicate for following partials and parts; i can
then just run down my list changing numbers. doh doh doh.
(and they should appear ok in the Mod’List)
(not *completely* irrelevant if i have to rewrite all the
but f’kn *underscores*…i’m sure that was my problem
with something where three variable all started with
the same 4 character prefix, then underscore, then the
rest of the name…just would not work. and then i got
rid of the underscore, bingo.
underscores… should one really avoid underscores?
i find them really useful and only had that one problem
if i use prefixes, lots of modulator names will start
the same way, followed by underscore – big little dilemma..
so many panels have underscores in the names without
i’m going to carry on: prefix, underscore, name
see if i hit that problem again, see what happens.
some names in panels use capitals at the start – you’re
not supposed to – so i don’t know how much of a big deal
