Its great but it dose not let you manipulate the tracks as you would "hard disk edits" because the group functions in reaper doesn't let you copy unless items are selected . splits seem to confuse reaper as to whats grouped etc.

Hears a couple of macros I've been playing with which let you do "hard disc edits" on a folder track and its contents.(no grouping necessary) using your drum overview macro first of coarse to provide the overview track to edit. You could use this to do a complete rearrange of a project I think but haven't tried .

Folder cut w

Hover the mouse above ware you want to cut ,press w .
Cuts all tracks in folder inline with mouse cursor and selects items on right. .

Item : select item under cursor
View : move edit cursor to mouse cursor
Item : Split item at edit cursor
SWS : Save loop selection to slot 1
SWS : Select children of selected folder track(s)
Item navigation : move courser left to edge of courser
Loop points : set start point
Item navigation : move courser right edge of courser
Loop points : set end point
Item : select all items in selected tracks in time selection
Item : Split item at edit cursor (select right)
SWS : Restore loop selection slot 1


Folder item select: F
Hover over item to be manipulated, press F. Selects item under mouse cursor and selects all items directly inline, in folder. You can then manipulate as before (Copy repeat move shorten change pitch etc)(no grouping necessary and if you use the cut tool above you'll be able to perform beat mashups with ease.

Item : select item under cursor
View : move edit cursor to mouse cursor
SWS : Save loop selection to slot 1
SWS : Select children of selected folder track(s)
Item navigation : move courser left to edge of courser
Loop points : set start point
Item navigation : move courser right edge of courser
Loop points : set end point
Item : select all items in selected tracks in time selection
SWS : Restore loop selection slot 1

To glue just glue overview track only.

Is there a way I can get automation to copy with items in this manner?

p.s. What do you use to show your screen captures
