Hacking the name matching rules

Reading Time: 1 minute

Someone over on KVR asked if they could adjust the name matching rules.

In this specific instance, he wanted the Librarian to find the patches with PLC in the name, and add them to the Pluck category. This feature doesn’t exist in the UI yet (it’s on the TODO list). But, if you’re feeling brave you can try this:

  1. Using Explorer, open the folder %APPDATA%\Synth1.Librarian.64.net (or Synth1.Librarian.32.net if you’re using the 32 bit version)
  2. Find the file categoryFilters.json, and make a backup of it somewhere
  3. Open the file using your favourite text editor
  4. Search for a section that resembles this:
    "Name": "Pluck",
    "InclusionWords": [
      "Pluck",
      ...
    ],
  5. Add an entry for PLC, so you end up with this:
    "Name": "Pluck",
    "InclusionWords": [
      "PLC",
      "Pluck",
      ...
    ],
    
  6. Save the file, then restart your DAW (this forces Synth1 Librarian to reload the categoryFilters.json file)
  7. Rebuild your library, and Synth1 Librarian will match using your rule

If all this sounds too scary, I’m afraid you’ll have to wait until I include this in a future release 🙂
