Not directly Renoise related but if I remember correctly one of the members here created a little program quite some time ago that would randomly select a number of files from a directory (and sub-directories?) and copy & paste into a selected location. I believe the main idea behind it was for creating sample packs for competitions.
Anybody know what I’m talking about and where I could find it?
No, those scripts aren’t mine. The whole project is a collaborative effort from a few members. I’ve only written the windows frontend, not any scripts. In case of “rndpack” the original version was written by Bytesmasher and Conner ported it to PHP later.
it seems like the script can already do that, there’s just no GUI option to set the -r(ecursive) thing. this should be trivial for someone who knows what they’re doing, all the prerequisites are already in the code… I tried adding option for it (recursive yes/no) at the end of the .cfg file, but then it got used as output folder
Also delete the “lastused.ini” in the “xrns-sf” folder.
Normally the script could make use of optional parameters using a single textbox, but for this to work one would need to modify the parameter checking in the script itself to accept this. The above is just a workaround for now. Something like below would be better of course but needs a fix in the PHP code to split the “-R” and “-P” properly.
Cheers Beatslaughter. Think I’m unlikely to want to change the defaults often so OK with having edited the .php but I may try and do it more “correctly” and some point and add the option for each variable in the future…
