Tools organized

Continuing from The Tools

Ok, so far I organized all the tools that are accesible via tool browser. I think I did it correct, but I’m not sure about “MIDI/OSC Remote Control --> MIDI Mapping”. So all the tools are assigned to a certain entry in the manual, so maybe a certain part of manual could have the listing of tools that improve/aleter it’s workflow.

Of course, if somebody spots a mistake in the assigning, let me know. And if someone could match the no ideas it also would be cool. Ok here it goes:

1.Global Song Control --> Song Settings

Groove Tool

Made into sticky (pinned, per agreement).

MODS: Do not unpin, for now anyways. Thanks.

Oh, and moved to Tools Discussion area.

Looks like a good start.

You have a few options here about where to put things, and whether to put tools in more than one category.

However, I would suggest the following new category:

  1. Performance / Live Use:
  • Dj Tools - Crossfader
  • Cells!
  • Grid Pie

and split section 13 and 14 into two parts each:

13a.MIDI/OSC Remote Control --> MIDI Mapping

  • Push Back
  • Midi Zoom Select

13b.MIDI/OSC Remote Control --> External hardware

  • SysEx Librarian
  • JX Programmer
  • Pking
  • Guru


14a. Sample Editing --> Sample Editor

  • Rubberband timestretch & pitch shift
  • Batch convert stereo to mono

14b. Sample Editing --> Sample Synthesis

  • Custom Wave Synth
  • PadSynth
  • AwesomeSawce
  • Overtune
  • ReSynth

Regarding what’s left in ‘no idea’ I would probably put paketti in 11 (Song Construction --> Pattern Editor) and Nibbles in an ‘entertainment’ or ‘misc’ category.

Yeah, I agree with you mxb about that, but I wanted them to be labeled as some certain entries in the manual, so that if someaone reads about some aspect, he may also check out the tools list attached to it and see if he’s interested in something.

I’d put Groove Tool in 11.Song Construction --> Pattern Editor as well

Yeah, that’ll might be a good idea but look, if somebody reads about groove in the manual, and that is in the Global Song Control → Song Settings, he will be able to take a look a Groove Pool right then, instead of looking in the pattern editor entry. So maybe it should belong to both entries? I’ll edit the list then and put it in pattern editor in brackets

It’s me again, bumping the thread just to say I’m still here.

I just want to make sure that we’re clear that I’m creating a single page called “Tools FAQ” (or some better name) and not putting links to the tools on the other pages.

Right now the first post doesn’t have URLs. Example:


  1. Instrument Editing --> Instrument Settings

Midi Management Console
Slice Master
Vsti From Menu


Before I can actually make this page it would be cool if you (or someone else) did the links like above. Also, we need some sort of intro paragraph. I won’t just cut and paste a bunch of links onto a page.

Thanks again. Good progress so far.

Ok links done, what now? Paragraph? What exactly do you mean?

Hi Vietkong, one error in the document… link called “Play and Loop Pattern” links to Overtune instead of the correct link (
