new xml to old prs preset format conversion

Post by bigears »

Hello,

I am trying to breathe some new life into some of my unfinished tracks.

I sort of moved on to ableton and thought I would use the FL wrapper and finish them in FL - if I manage.
Don't hate me too much for this, I do not really have the fu skills to jam/seq well in buzz :(

So, for example, I used Arguelles Alpha quite a bit, and when I save my presets I get the new xml, which I cannot
feed the FL machine wrapper.

I opened the prs files, some parts are legible, but not the preset-specific info afaik.
Is here a way to convert them to prs? Or should I just try to use a buzz version before xml presets to export them?

This post got longer than I thought but thanks if anyone can help.

Perhaps try to contact a Buzzer called "tinga" he knows a lot about preset-stuff in buzz and he might be a person who is able to solve such a problem ... ;)

I could add an "import xml file" to the buzz wrapper in polac vst, shouldn't be a problem to do. Export to prs file is already possible there.

Good idea Xlutop (imo), if you really wanna do this work. Thx in advance ... Btw if you "fly" around here, I have a problem with Zoom H 1 and Buzz ... I'll open another topic in devs ...

Hello Polac! Thanks for the reply and the nice suggestion.
For me it would be a nice feature, I do not know where it is on everyone else's (or your :) list.
I played around with your wrapper but it reads the prs only the moment - so no recently saved (xml) presets. At least for me.

Ok i'll add this then, give me a week or two. Should be pretty easy to add.

@ Polac: Yes, if you feel to do so: "JUST DO IT" and allthe Buzzer's should use it and post their presets here, like the good old " GiantHamster" and other's did in the good old days ... (don't ask me right at the moment no time and furthermore a little bit lazy ;) .
