Could the loop parameters be saved in the .hdr file for the song?
Yes Please this would save so much time.

Geil, wonderful work with MTS. I have been using it for about 5 years on Mac.

Feature requests (and PLEASE forgive me if I have missed that these things are already available. I HAVE looked for them in manual and forum).

1. Bump: more choice of colours on the track title.
2. Bump: a longer track title window for names (or perhaps remove the "mono audio (.aem)" line and allow that to be used for additional user entered characters. The "mono.." could appear in the drop-down.
3. The ability to edit the automation of volume, pan etc simultaneously for multiple tracks, probably via the "Multitrack editor" window.
4. A simple "duplicate track" function that copies both the sound file and the mixer's settings to a new track. I sometimes want to keep the original and then have a second track that I then edit.
5. Bump: the ability to group Tracks in the mixer (not just in their output sections) so that say tracks 1-5 are the first part of the song or the whole rhythm section and I can collapse ALL of them in one click, then expand tracks 6-10 which are the second part of the song. If tracks were able to be grouped, also having a Mute/Solo button for that whole group without needing to actually send their outputs to the group routing would be nice. I COULD use output-grouping for this, but the way I work with tracks would mean that I would need to be constantly changing a track's grouping.
6. Bump: that the Editor Grid is dividable into 3 (triplets). I have to create a second click track and quantize it to triplets so that I have a visual triplet grid in the editor to align/edit other tracks against.
7. Clip Shelf: is it possible to have a little play/preview button against each clip because I soon forget what each one is, even with creative naming. And the names have to be kept short because the clip shelf takes up space much needed for the mixer and I only have one monitor. Could the clip shelf be movable so that it could sit horizontally at the bottom of the screen?
8. Would it be possible to save the Clip Shelf to the song, so that each song could have its own clip shelf?
9. Section Markers. I use Markers a lot, but I soon run out of space on the Overview Bar in a long piece. Could we have it that a user can make 'sections' on the Bar and that they be coloured, which would save needing to add a label for beginning and end, AND / OR could there be a zoom feature for the Overview Bar, perhaps responding to the zoom + - that is already a feature, so that I can just focus on one part of the song for a while.
10. Bump: A record button, one that automatically re-arms the last track or tracks that were in record mode and starts the transport.

By the way, there are so many features that I have wanted to have over the years, only to find that when I check, they are already there, perhaps because of recent updates. I'm really impressed with your dedication to ongoing development. Plugin Manager was a Godsend!

As before, I am happy to keep making donations as you keep adding features. Great software!

Thanks for the ideas.

5. You can right click the small 'collapse' buttons in the top-right corners and choose from options like 'collapse same color tracks'. Perhaps this helps.

6. This was added in the 9.3 release: https://www.multitrackstudio.com/version93.php (item #3).

One simple wish: built-in MIDI velocity normaliser.

I have some no-name chinese USB MIDI controller which has poorly implemented MIDI sensitivity. It's either too high or too low at random. :?

I use "ignore MIDI velocity" settings or VeloScaler VST plugin. This works great but it will be easier and faster* if similar plugin will be built-in.

* faster as in "it takes some minute to scan my large VST collection"
