Let me delete the current song

Pretty annoying message on the songs page when I try to delete the “current song”. :wink:

Ok to ask me if I’m sure, but don’t prevent me from cleaning up and force me to load another song, come back, etc.


I agree with this!!

Agree! Just make the icon gray/disabled

This is more about letting the user perform the requested action than making the UI more obvious that deletion isn’t allowed.

A one step confirmation dialog box (“are you sure?”) is ok, but not necessary.

I have a different spin on this as an idea request:

When you press and hold the Play/Stop you get the pop-up “Are you sure you want to delete all tracks?”, instead I’d prefer the pop-up had three choices and I had to select one: “Delete all tracks?”, “Delete current selected track?”, “Cancel”.

To me this would be way faster and more intuitive than having to click Play/Stop after a take, then hold down the track button to clear what was just recorded on the track.


That’s a great idea. Even better if I can make a choice via footswitch and/or scroll wheel. :wink:

The original post was reporting a bug on the Song Page, not in the Loop Studio. On the Song Page you can delete any song on the page … except for the one open in the Loop Studio.

Yes. This feature would definitely be great. Have the ability to delete just one of the tracks via the footswitch.

Agreed that disallowing delete of the current song is a strange constraint. This caught me off guard. Why not allow the user to delete the current song and let them start a new one? Clear all the settings and then start from scratch again. This feels like a broken interaction or a way to circumvent a limitation of the software. I hope SS removes this constraint.
