Hello everyone,

I recently switched to Studio One and I'm trying to build a macro.

In Ableton Live, when I import an audio file into an existing track, that track automatically gets renamed after the file I imported.

This is useful to me since I usually work with tracks that are already labeled and I also use templates with tracks and routing alredy set up for mixing.

Since this isn't happening in S1, I'm trying to build a macro to copy the event name, modify the channel name and paste the event name there.

This is what I came up with:

edit|select all (without this one the following command doesn't work)

event|rename event

edit|copy (to copy the already selected event name)

navigation|enter (to close the rename window)

console|rename channel

edit|paste (to past the event name into the rename channel window)

navigation|enter (to close the rename channel window)

A few thins don't work: the rename event comes up, but it seems to copy a weird xml code and not the event name if I try to paste manually (it doesn't paste automatically). Also the enter command doesn't work, when I hit enter manually the macro goes on with the rename channel window, but again the paste and enter commands don't work.

What am I doing wrong? Is there a way to make it work? I searched for similar macros but I didn't find anything.

Please help me if you can.

Thank you all,
