i'm using umenu to call up samples such as drums for examples. one umenu for kicks, one for snares, etc. each group is in a different folder. i have the menus populated but it gets confusing as to what umenu is for what so i want each one to display a title in the first slot. so for one umenu it'll say "snares" and then in the drop down will be "dry1.aif", "reverb1.aif" etc.
could i have a umenu with just the "snares" as the menu text and then append the file names? i tried to do this with autopopulate on and it just erased the "snares" option. could i prepend "snares" on load to an autopopulated menu? i just see append and setitem options.
