library of containers

I have a dream :

Exporting a library of figures, from the same "ensemble", to a "library of containers"…

you can already drop containers to a library. this adds all phrases in the container to a new folder.

But not Library to arrangement in container…

It's true the library takes phrases only, one folder per container. However, dropping a container onto an arrangement with totally different instruments would not make much sense anyway. You need to decide which phrase goes to which instrument. While doing that, dragging them individually isn't really much extra work.

In containers, you can have triades, or rythmics sections for example ;-)

True, a library can't do that. This is also on my personal wish list. Unfortuantely a library has no means to keep multiple instruments in a single object. This requires a major rewrite of the library code.

What you can already do is drag a container from its original arangement directly to a new one. This way Synfire knows all the sounds plus the inherited figures and harmony, so it can properly make a copy in the other arrangement.

A virtual group, is it possible ? Maybe a "symbolic container", no "physical container"
The tracks are in library but you add a group of symbolic-link for buid a virtual container (I dont know your framework ;-)

Yes, I do this, it's a good feature … :)
