    doh…
    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:

    pT1_P1_pt1
    pT2_P1_pt1
    etc.

    or:

    pt1P1_pT1
    pt1P1_pT2
    etc.

    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..)

    edit: mm, prefix, yeah?

    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
    methods…)

    ie:
    pt1P1_pT1
    pt1P1_pT2
    pt1P1_pT3 …

    and

    pt1P2_pT1
    pt1P2_pT2 …

    and

    pt2P1_pT1
    pt2P1_pT2 …

    etc.

    cool link !

    i like camelCasing right now 😉

    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.

    bookmarked. cheers.

    underscores… should one really avoid underscores?
    i find them really useful and only had that one problem
    once.

    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
    problems.

    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
    it is.
