When I drag multiple samples the file token praiser doesn't give me all the options.
Also, there seems to be a problem with the RR group assigning where after a certain amount of files it doesn't let me assign the samples to the group
I'm using the latest version for MAC
What do you mean it doesn't give you all the options. When you say the latest version, are you using the release from the download page or did you build the latest version from source?
I am using a release,
I mean that in the Import Dialogue menu I'm getting only one line in which to input
String Property Datatype Items Values
My files are labelled
PianoLvld C2 V1 RR-01
(Key) (VeloGroup) (RRGroup)
Should I change their names?
@roy-n What have you assigned as the separator in the token parser?
Ahh I see I might need to rename as it doesn't accept the space key as a separator?

@roy-n Actually I think it does accept it. Give it a try and see. You can put multiple separaters in there so you could have a space and a dash. The usual method is to use either underscores or dashes and to use MIDI note numbers rather than note names because different systems use a different name for middle C, sometimes it's C4, sometimes it's C3 but it's always MIDI note 60.
@d-healey Great! think I've got it.
Thank you very much!
@d-healey In the same parameter dialogue menu. How do I set a low and High velocity value?
@roy-n I can't remember which option you need based on your file names, click the little ? and it should tell you. It will be something like velocity range or velocity spread.
@d-healey I have just assigned a group number for example V1, V2, V3...
I guess my question is once I've chosen the velocity range or spread what do I input into Items and Values (I'm sorry I've read the manual on this and don't quite understand thank you for your patience)
@d-healey I'll be more specific I want V1 to have a velocity range between 111 - 127
@roy-n Yeah I'm not sure, just try one of the velocity values and see if it works the way you want. If it doesn't try another one, repeat until you find the one that works
assigning a custom string to a certain velocity range is not possible, but you can use Velocity Spread to distribute them equally over the 127 range, then make the changes manually to your exact desired range in the sample map editor.
BTW, if the parser doesn't behave like you want, you can also use scripting to change the sample attributes like this:
- Throw the samples into the sampler, but don't care about velocity arrangement (use Ignore for all tokens related to velocity)
- Add a script processor in the Sampler
- Run this script:
Sampler.selectSounds("V1"); Sampler.setSoundPropertyForSelection(Sampler.LoVel, 111); Sampler.setSoundPropertyForSelection(Sampler.HiVel, 127); Sampler.refreshInterface();
- Repeat for all other V# tokens - I'll leave this as little excercise
More about this topic here:
Oh, and space is like the worst separator for tokens (only beaten by
-(minus) which fires for lower note names like
C#-1. Nothing beats
_when it comes to token separation robustness.
Also having issues manually assigning the round robin groups once the initial importing has happened where they either not change or revert to 1
@roy-n Why are you manually assigning the groups, were they not assigned by the token parser?
