    Great Stuff!

    Can you provide more Options.txt choices?
    Also, you didn’t explain this one -_RelaxFileManagerSearch

      There aren’t endless Options.txt commands. _RelaxFileManagerSearch will let Live’s File Manager bypass the checksum comparison for replacement candidates so that audio files that were changed in a different app and might have a different checksum will be “recognised” and replaced.
