Custom File Naming

 

 

Use Custom File Naming

 

The Use Custom File Naming option allows you to name your file in many different ways. You insert codes into the code line and your file will be named according to those codes.

 

In order to use the codes for BARS, SECONDS, TIMECODE, SAMPLES etc. You must have selected the correct option in Transport Time Display.

 

When using Custom File Naming - MEAP will always read the part position from the transport bar. You must have the left locator displayed in your audio application transport bar.

 

Codes for Dates will work at all times as will codes for file naming.

 

Any word you enter that is not a code will appear in the filename as it is.

 

The box underneath the code entry area will give you an idea what your output file name will look like. You may need to enter some text to update this area.
