Kit Creator updated to v0.99

June 19, 2022, 1:36 pm

This is a big update that’s seen a huge amount of work in terms of restructuring into a modular system and refining the small things. I think this really should be v1.0 but I want to see if anyone has any feedback. The formats conversion is still to come but that shouldn’t impact any existing features.

v0.99

  • Added a new Pad Screen which shows which allows clicking on a pad and showing/enabling which of the folders are assigned. Pads can also be labelled and saved as label presets.
    • Pads will display folders faded if they do not have any folders assigned. Folders will be faded if they are not assigned to currently selected Pad.
    • Pad Screen allows drag & dropping multiple folders and drag & drop re-ordering.
    • Pad Panel shows which pads a folder is assigned to when hovering over a folder.
  • Folder Displays now have a right click menu that provides various options such as remove, clear, copy Path & open in Finder/Explorer.
  • Processing Panel added and all previous top controls moved to it, it has a modular design so different inputs, tasks and outputs can be assigned now as they are developed.
  • Possibility to randomize Volume, Pan and Release in existing folders of files.
  • Added options to enable/disable the numeric/Random name generators.
  • Numeric name now counts existing files and starts numbering at total+1.
  • Added Folder Size Display to Folders Panel and total at the top.
  • Folder Highlight Colour added to themes.
  • Folder Border added to themes.
  • Added Mouse Over highlight to the dummy folder box on the themes page so that Folder highlight can be previewed on that page.
  • Output Amount now displays ‘All’ instead of -1.
  • It’s now no longer possible to load the exact same directory twice.
  • Folder and Slider Headers were using the wrong Text Colour, should have been Header text.
  • Folders now support Drag & Drop to change the order instead of the up/down arrows.
  • Slider number labels now use the correct theme colour.
  • Slider panel parameter Enable controls moved to processing Panel.
  • Rewritten how the messages are used throughout the app, now hovering over controls will display messages at the top instead of through the Tooltip system.
  • Right click menu added to file displays with delete file/save etc…
  • Preset Table Border now uses the border colour correctly.
  • Manual rewritten to reflect the many changes.

Kit Creator updated to v0.961

May 28, 2022, 4:30 pm

v0.961

  • Fixed issue with crashes related to aif cache files or other non audio files with .aif + further extension.
  • Added Version Number to the Logo Display.

v0.96

  • Folder Tooltip now shows full Folder path in case it’s too long to fit and the Folder field truncates the path so you can always see the end Folder. This also applies to the MPC output field.
  • Option to disable copying samples for Live Kits so the kit points to their current location instead. Note that this isn’t possible for MPC as Programs and samples have to be in the same folder.
  • Boiler Plate code implemented, I’ve hopefully covered all scenarios now.
  • Scan logging implemented. Each time process is started log.txt is cleared & created in documents/Homegrown Sounds/Kit Creator.
  • Improved the Collection name text editor so that it saves correctly on enter and restores previous name on escape.
  • Fixed the scan message not displaying.
  • Added Reveal buttons for opening the destination folders in Finder/Explorer.

Kit Creator Updated to v0.95

May 26, 2022, 10:47 pm

  • Adds a Preset System and Theming:
  • Settings storage improved so they can easily adapt to additional settings in future updates and a pathway towards themes and presets.
  • Preset System added. Saves Slider, Folder and Export options. You can decide whether the folder paths are loaded as they are only really relevant to the local machine. Presets are stored in /documents/Homegrown Sounds/Kit Creator/Presets and presets need to be created in this folder.
  • Info display now shows Slider values as they are edited.
  • Added Set All Buttons for each Slider Bank “A” which sets all Slider values to the same as the top slider.
    Each Parameter now has an Enable Button to decide whether those values should be randomized.
  • Global Default implemented, click the ‘D’ button. You can overwrite the Default file by using the ‘save default’ button.
  • Theme system implemented using all 22 Colours with an in application colour selector and load/save mechanism. Themes are stored in documents/Homegrown Sounds/Kit Creator/Themes.

Analog Drums Samples/Instruments

A large collection of 3,500 Samples recorded at 24-bit 96k using an Analog Rytm. The samples are mono recorded directly from the outputs of the machine. This sample collection is about capturing the raw analog power of this machine’s engines and so doesn’t use the onboard effects.

    – used by the included Kontakt Instruments
  • 24-bit/16 bit 44.1k
    – Suitable for MPC Live

MIDI MOD Updated & Second Instrument MIDI Snapper added

January 27, 2022, 7:15 pm

MIDI Mod has been updated to 1.01 with the following:

  • NEW Instrument added – MIDI Snapper.
  • Added ‘Note Through’ option so that it can be used purely for CC data and made that the default which I think makes a lot more sense so you can play notes elsewhere.
  • Setting Slope to 2 will turn Sequencer Mode on so the sequencer behaves as a step Sequencer instead of an Envelope LFO.

MIDI Snapper is a simple MIDI Instrument that allows control over up to 8 MIDI Control Changes with 12 States that can be changed via the assigned Octave of triggers shown in Red on the Kontakt GUI Keyboard. It supports MIDI CC Profiles created with the onboard Editor so that a list of Named and relevant Control Changes are the only available options in the Menus.

There is also a MIDI Recorder which can record all MIDI Data which can be drag n dropped elsewhere.
