BAD BAD BAD HISE!
Ok, I just opened my recently completed project and my interface has disappeared. I've tried to load the hip file and the xml no avail. What am I doing wrong?
..and now I cant create any new widgets - well I can but as soon as I compile they disappear.
I had a similar problem recently - https://forum.hise.audio/topic/1162/preset-hip-opens-empty/9
And I encountered an even more weird one last night which I'm trying to resolve now, might be similar to yours.
yep getting very similar symptoms - on loading tells me :
component with name <XYZ> wasn' t found
and like you when I try and reload for a second time HISE crashes .
I've narrowed mine down a bit. I commented out the line in my code that is loading sample maps and now it loads just fine. Now to solve this sample map loading...
I've started going through all the testing tools in the tools menu, so far I've discovered that for some reason none of my sample maps had the correct ID set.
OK I found that too! - so how do I set it correctly?
OK looking at the sample map as XML shows the sample map set like this:
-- so that looks wrong
@Lindon Tools >> Update Sample Map Ids Based On File Names
thanks yeah just found it.
OK I think I'm back to where I was this morning (I've completely rebuilt the UI) now all I need to do is work out how to load samples on init.
I cant get loadSampleMap to even be recognised as a command.
What the!!!! its done it again. Everything LOST..... this release seems to be broken in some way.
@Lindon What version are you using? Save as an xml as well as .hip. Use GIT to keep working versions. Did you get the sampler as a child synth? If so you need to use

I have same issues though my project isn't based on samples, just a synth with synth modules.
@ossian1961 Can you post a snippet?
@d-healey I'm on 2.0 build 650
@d-healey I must still be doing something wrong - where is the documentation???
heres my init call back (I have a sampled called Voice1):
@Lindon Yeah that's not quite right. Not sure if it's specifically documented but it will be hidden away on the forum somewhere. I keep thinking we need a wiki
So first you have to get the sampler in a variable - right click on the sampler and select
Create script variable declarationand then paste into your script.
Then you will have a variable called something like
Voice1in your case.
To load a sample map you'll use
Voice1.asSampler().loadSampleMap("XylophoneVoice1"). When loading sample maps HISE automatically uses the SampleMaps folder.
Sigh so this means then that the API documentation on the web is wrong/incomplete and the api documentation in the instrument itself is wrong/incomplete - WTF!
really "asSampler()" appears precisely nowhere.... Ok well moveing on...
So when I deploy my vst how do I structure the folders?
the dll alongside two folders called "Samples" and "SampleMaps"
Will that suffice to make the dll start and automatically load the sample maps - so I dont have all this .hp1 silliness??
There will be a reference to it somewhere because I think Christoph told me on this forum.
So you only need to use
asSamplerif you use
getChildSynthto store the sampler reference in a variable. If you use
getSamplerinstead then there is no need. However I prefer to use
getChildSynthbecause sometimes you'll want to treat it as a
childSynthand sometimes you'll want to treat it as a sampler.
The sample maps will be embedded in the exported VST, all you need to supply is the ch monolith files, assuming you've converted your samples to monoliths. If you want to be fancy and include an installer then you'll want to use the
Export >> Export samples for installertool which will compress the samples into an HR archive. This is a delivery format only which provides a smaller download for your customers. Once the user opens the instrument they will be asked to give the location of the hr1 file which will then be extracted to their chosen location, after which they can delete the HR files. Here's some detailed user documentation for this process - https://librewave.com/knowledge-base/sample-library-installation-guide/#Installing_the_samples

@ossian1961 I mean open your project go to
Export >> Export as HISE Snippetand post it here. Then I can open the project and see if I can find the problem.
