I have 150+ patches and they all have a rack panel that is unique and a rack panel that is the same. The common panel hosts the widgets for my three effects chains; one for pads, one for keys and one for “other” instruments.
Those widgets are mapped to my Lemur template so if I want to tweak reverb or shimmer or cutoff or chorus, etc. I go to the “Pads” tab in Lemur. It sends the OSC commands and my widgets update.
Problem is, when I want to make a change to that boilerplate panel I have to make the same changes 150+ times. When that change involves mapping every single widget it can take 45 minutes each. I had no choice to do this when I converted from MIDI mappings to OSC. For every patch I had to clear about 50 MIDI mapping and set up 50 OSC mappings. It has been killing me.
Countless hours could have been saved if I could have saved my rack panel and have the mappings save too. In the save dialog you could have a checkbox to indicate if you want to save MIDI or OSC mappings with the panel.
For me those widgets always map to the same blocks on the rear side. To save remapping all 50 widgets I would want those blocks to be saved with the rack panel. Thus the front and back of the rack are saved as a set.
Then all you need is inputs and outputs for each rack panel so you can route audio and MIDI between them.
This fits the UI nicely and would save a ton of time.
