I am interested in automatically creating a separate (logically named) xrni file for each of the east west .ewi instruments I own.
The way EastWest Play works is that it is a single plugin, but there’s a keyboard shortcut within the plugin editor to choose a specific ewi instrument (e.g. tremolo strings, distortion guitar) based on its filename. Unfortunately, the parameters in the Instruments.xml of an xrni of an ewi instrument are encrypted, so I can’t just change the filename there.
I have a list of all of the ewi instruments I own. How can I use lua scripting or some other method to repeatedly create an instrument instance, open the plugin editor, use the keyboard shortcut to select an ewi, and then save and rename the instrument as an xrni? In particular, all of these seem straightforward except using the keyboard inside the plugin editor.
I don’t necessarily need to reproduce their library - I just want to automatically choose which instrument (which I own) to select within their VST editor. Unfortunately, I can’t think how this would be possible.
