There's no problem, I write a Python script to inject the Product name, Bank name & Sub-Bank name in your Groups (.mxgrp) and Sounds (.mxsnd).

Download the Python script NIMBank :
For Windows user, install Python to use this script (No tested on Windows OS).

Be careful, this script is deliver "as is" and the manipulation is at your own risk.This script is write with reverse ingeenering. It's not write by NI or with NI Information.Save your files before.

$ ./NIMBank.py -p "99Sounds" -b "Cinematics" -r /Users/Shared/Maschine\ User/99Sounds/Cinematic\ Sound\ Effects
Select the folder in the finder and drop to to Terminal.app
