Just a quick remark on how this is (was?) handled in the old Cubase 2.0 on
if provided two distinct ways to make copies of a region (called 'part' in
1) normal copy
- this makes a duplicate with the intend to alter it
- gets a new name (nice to see where it from originated)
2) ghost copy
- this is the equivalent of a unix symlink; editing one (any) instance
makes is also effective in all other 'ghost copies'
- basicly there are multiple instances of the same part;
Perhaps it gives some idea?
