IconBank Auto Name (Bank Window)



Auto Name displays a dialog to enter the basic name for each entry in the bank.

You may wish to rename Patches this way when:

1.Only the name of the Patch needs to be changed, its faster than opening the editor
2.There is no Editor for the SysEx, so this is the only way to change the name
3.There is no name SysEx stored in the patch itself, so this is the only way to change the name

The last option applies only to some older instruments where names were not included as part of the Patch. In such cases, the program will create space so that names can be assigned and stored. Remember that these names cannot be sent back to the instrument, the instrument does not know how to store them.


To auto name each Patch in a Bank:

1.Select one or more Patches you wish to name.
2.Choose the Name button or Bank Edit/Edit/Auto Name...
3.Use the displayed Patch Name Dialog to enter a new name
4.Press the OK button
5.If more than one patch was selected, the dialog will appear for each patch until each has been renamed. If audition is enabled, the patch will be auditioned before the name appears for editing.
