Hello happy Renoise users,
I’ve developed a tool that builds XRNI files directly from samples and does the keyboard mapping automatically.
For example, if you’ve got an “elecpiano” samples like that :
my tool will turn all the samples into a elecpiano.xrni instrument with correct mapping of samples on the keyboard.
It’s called “TomatE”, it’s free, and you can find it on my homepage.
Oops! I forgot to say that it’s coded in Java, it will work on any system (that support java).
You can find Windows and OS X “nativized” version too.
I just checked this out with a multi sampled instrument from a magazine cover disc. Every month I get them and think “i should build these into an xrni”, but I never do. It worked on the first attempt and seems to have allocated all the samples correctly. I’ll definitely be getting some use from this.
