How to collect .txx file into a software library

Unread post by dfinucci » Wed Feb 27, 2008 2:02 pm

Good morning, Sirs. I'm an SY99 owner. I have also a copy of SoundDiver and Sy Manager too. Finally, i have a lot of "all data" files (*.txx file extension) on my hard disk.
Is there a way to build a library on the pc without using the floppy of the keyboard ? In other word, i would like to have a sound library file (built by adding singles .txx files ) in the hard disk and then send to the SY99 only the sound that i need at a moment (via MIDI, of course).
Many thanks and sorry if it's a silly question: i'm rather a novice on that matter.

Hi,

Have you looked at the following?

I'm writing my own librarian for the SY77 which would do what you want (once I've finished), but unless there's a huge demand, I doubt I'd make the effort to make it SY99 compatible as well.
Regards

Thank you Derek for your prompt reply: yes, i own SY Manager software and it seems nt to comply with my needs. I'm now hoping that your sofware will be SY compatible and of course my demand is huge :-)
I'm a Visual basic programmer (not very experienced, but average quality): could this help ? May be your software will support plugins ?
Many thanks

Some other options mentioned in a rather long thread on this forum, Soundiver, Midiquest 9, and Uniquest. I can't say anyhting about them as I have never used them, but it might be worth looking at their websites.

Hi,

Sorry, I'm a Java man 8O

I got lured by the ability to write once for many platforms.

I hope to release the first version for the SY77 within the month, so take a look at the demo version when its out and see if an SY99 version is needed.

In the meantime, you could download one my existing librarians for the other synths I own, so you can get a feel for what an SY version will do (the core functionality is identical).

What will be new in the SY version is the ability to add all your patches to one database.
Regards
