Description: Batch-process Clips in Live

Do you have a Live set with hundreds or even thousands of clips and ever wanted to apply a certain action (e.g. change color, rename, delete, move, change length, etc.) to many clips at once? Batchelor (alpha) might be (soon) the right device for you.

How it works:
1. Select all clips you want to manipulate based on:
- Name (or parts of it including wildcards)
- Color
- Type (Midi, Audio)
- Length
- Location (Tracks, Clip Slots)
- Manual Selection (with by mouse)
- tbd (based on your feedback)

2. Select what kind of action you want to apply:
- Rename (incl. replacing only parts of the clip-name, adding Track-Name, Clip-Slot names the clips are in, etc)
- Change Color
- Change length (absolute or adding/subtracting time)
- Delete
- tbd (based on your feedback)

This is an early alpha and hasn't been really tested well. Just send me some feedback (whether it works, what kind of features you need, the workflow you would be using it in, etc.). Just leave a comment.

Have fun!

Hey MaxIma,

this sounds great? Unfortunately I am unable to open it both in Max 8 and Live 10.0.2. I'm on OS X 10.3.6. When dragging it over both audio and midi track in Live I get the forbidden sign and double clicking it in the Live browser doesn't do anything. Same happens when I open it from Finder, Max 8 launches, but the patch doesn't open.

Cool idea.

Rad! Can't wait to give this a try. Will be great for building sample packs.

Doesn't seem to be working with Live v10.0.5 (2018-10-18_8aeadb1597) using the bundled Max 8.

Would love to use this tho! The batch rename clips feature would be AMAZING.

Did not work in live 10

Is this abandoned?
