Are there some sort of "Import Session Data" solution in the works?
What springs to mind is something simular to what Pro Tools have.

For Studio One v3 maybe?

First, no need to post the same question in two forums.

Second, what exactly does "Import Session Data" do for those of us who have not used ProTools?

Import one or more tracks from an existing song.

If that is true, you can do this now. Drag and drop any WAV file into any song from the browser. Not sure i understand what you're asking for...

Replacing or adding tracks with inserts, sends VSTs and so on While working on a song on two machines, importing song data will be helpful.

Then take a look here:

All videos show slightly different uses of Import Session Data. Very powerful feature indeed.

When we first are at it, what a hell:

A bit old video, and he is in Pro Tools HD. But from PT9 and onward it has full Import Session Data also in the native version.

Very useful feature when mixing albums far example. It's not handy to use templates, especially when I have to copy fx channels from one song to other. Track preset is nice, but it doesn't contain level, panning and sends. And it's takes a lot of time to copy 50-70 presets with taping level, pan and sends (I did it couple times )

s1 song is zip archive. Try to rename it as *.zip and fix it with any archive fix tool

Also I suggest to integrate Import Session tool in browser. Songs should be expandeble and inside them we should see all tracks, buses, fx and automation, Then just drag'n'drop into session window. No way to do it simplier

Now that is useful information. Thanks.

Even knowing that they use *.zip all over the place it never even occurred to me that the song package was also a zip package. Duh! I'm actually curious now, from a third party "hacker" point of view, if it's possible to inject some track data into an exising song package with XML... hmmmm....

First of all you can save a corrputed session and secondly as I do most of the time for example I can create a session just for brass section editing and etc and without having to export them I just import those tracks to the original session. A lot of more usefulness really

I've never used mac, so I don't know any zip fixers. I only know that you should rename file from test.song to test.zip (this way it works in win anyhow)
my "integrate Import Session tool in browser" was suggestion how to realize importing data from one song to another
One time we tried to remove plugin from track using unzipped xmls from song but nothing turned out We just couldn't solve the structure of xmls
