Hi mr. Neutrino Sky
First, great compliments of the wonderful VST plugin Synth Librarian.
It’s great to explore the sounds in such a fantastic way.
I have a little issue.
I have a Linux based Lionstracs Keyboard in which i can import several VST instruments.
The Synth1 is a great addition to a lot of patches.
Because of the lots and lots of patches, i want also to put it in my keyboard.
I have almost the solution.
1. Unpack all the zip files in a folder (almost 200 folders with patches)
2. download and use “Bulk Rename Utility” ( http://www.bulkrenameutility.co.uk/Download.php )
3. Rename all the extensions from “sy1” to “csv” (it’s only text so it’s possible)
Go to the root of all the patches (f.i. zipfiles)
check: Subfolders, Extension “Fixed” to csv uncheck: folders
Select all the files and click on rename
4. Now all the sy1 patches have the extension csv
5. I made a macro in Excel which get all 128 patches of one folder and put it horizontal in a worksheet.
6. The macro deletes all rows except the first two.
7. The macro makes from the rows columns. (Paste transpose, typical word for a non musical program 😉 )
8. Save it as a csv file and rename it back as a txt file.
It’s a lot of work but it went a lot faster than to type everything though ?
I succeeded to import a lot of these patches in my Lionstracs keyboard but often with strange names.
Now my issue.
I thought that the first row was all the names of the patches.
When i look at it in my keyboard, it is not always the case.
Do you have for me a sort of an Excel list where i can find all the patchnames, such as in your youtube explanation ?
I can send you the VBA-source code. Maybe you can use it for inspiration.
I hope you can help me.
Thanks in advance.
