I can put in a vote of agreement for this feature, it would help me out a
LOT when dealing with 4 seperate takes of 24 tracks each from a live
performance situation, where I might pull certain songs from one take and
other songs from another(Like I am currently doing) and like to line them
all up in a single session easily.
