Improve labeling of send actions
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Currenlty Labels, Buttons, Knobs, Sliders with actions assigned to Current Channel>Main> Send>x get an automatic naming of "CH xx" however this does not define the SEND that the control is currently effecting which is dynamic dependant on the "Channel" selected which could be and INPUT, GROUP, FX SEND, MIX, LR or MATRIX.
Please can controls with this type of action can the "Ident" be the associated SEND name i.e. MIX 1, GROUP 1, FX SEND 1, MTX 1.
Mixing Station knows the correct number of sends for the "channel" selection and knows the correct names for the Sends as these are displayed in the channel view "sends" window. But the controls cannot currently be labelled as to the dynamic function to which they are acting upon.

It's sadly not that simple, the action system doesn't know about sends or channel names, it's only providing access to parameters without a more in depth context (for example additional names).

You can however already use [chname] to get the current channel, but this probably won't help you with labeling the sends

aware its currently not possible hence the feature request log for future thought. [chname] just results in all the UI controls all being labelled as the "channel" selected.
I suppose what the action system needs is a [sendnamex] function.
Somewhere within Mixing Station you must have a lookup table (or similar) to which the Channel view is getting its naming for the sends window. Could this be used to also obatin the send name to the action system?

Just a thought.

No it's not as simple as that :-) but I'll come up with something
