Someone reported a problem that I’ve never encountered before: they can’t get Synth1 to receive patches from Synth1 Librarian.
Synth1 Librarian sends patches to Synth1 via a temporary patch folder, which is located at %APPDATA%\Synth1.Librarian.64|32.net\TempPatches (the 64/32 depends on the bitness of the Librarian). So the requirements to send patches are:
- Synth1 Librarian needs to point to the correct Synth1 DLL
- Synth1 Librarian needs to know Synth1’s INI file location
- Synth1 needs to point SoundBank00 to the temporary patch folder
- Synth1 needs “Select program from host” enabled
Synth1 Librarian should automate steps (2) to (4), but in some cases file permissions might prevent it from doing so. To get around that issue, try running your DAW/host as Administrator.
When everything is configured correctly, the options in Synth1 Librarian and Synth1 should look like this (note the highlighted areas). Whenever you select a Patch in the Librarian, you should see Synth1’s UI update:
If you continue having problems, please report them using the comments, and I’ll do my best to fix them for a future release.
UPDATE August 4th 2018
If your Windows user name contains UNICODE characters (e.g accents or umlauts), double-check the SoundBank00 path in Synth1’s settings. If the path contains strange characters, use the Browse button point it at the correct path (e.g. C:\Users\Zoé\AppData\Roaming\Synt1.Librarian.64.net\TempPatches)
