request for feature - move .ASD files

Post by neuronaut » Thu Sep 28, 2006 6:53 pm

In Ableton Live, the app info for each track is stored in an .ASD file.

There are many people looking for a way to sort, and reorganize - media monkey would be the answer if:

When files are moved to a new folder structure, they could move the .ASD file with it!

file.wav and file.asd need to be in the same location.

Mediamonkey already ask if it should move additional files if a folder contains songs from one album. Do you have Confirm desired options on move... selected in Options > Confirmations?

Hmmm... Does that currently work for all file types (and not only jpg and m3u)?
Extensions: ExternalTools, ExtractFields, SongPreviewer, LinkedTracks, CleanImport, and some other scripts (Need Help with Addons > List of All Scripts).

I'm not really sure about that.

It only moves some filetypes. For example, .cue files are not moved - however I wrote a script which moves them. I will write a script for you to move .asd files as well! :)

Speaking of Ableton. Can you also move the als files (which are multiples clips of one audio files)? Thanks.

Yes, you can edit the variable at the top of the script to move any buddy file.

It's the second line of code (after the comment at the top) - you might want something like...

Code: Select all

Dim Types : Types = Array("asd","als")

Hello again. I did what you say. Also the mp3 file and the als file have the same name but it didn't work. I mean the asd file move but not the als file. I don't know why. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I tried everything to move the als file but it doesn't work. I really need help here. Do you have any suggestion to resolve this problem? Thanks

I still don't understand where to edit the code. I see the move12 listed under extensions, but there is no options box. Also, if I open the mmip file it is gibberish(compiled?)
