Proper data structure for Solaris Presets

Post by John Bowen » Mon Feb 04, 2013 12:37 pm

Here is an important reminder, to make sure that any user Presets are properly ordered.

The Solaris requires the following structure:

Presets/BankN/Patch/p0.pre, p01.pre, etc.

(Where N following Bank is the next available bank number in your Preset folder).

So, a typical folder setup would be: Presets/Bank7/Patch/p0.pre, etc.


thanks,
john b.

Ah, I should have corrected this....last time I had a chance to ask Julian about this, he said it doesn't matter! He changed to all caps in the new OS v1.2...so, I guess it was an unnecessary effort....sorry about that!

Is there a limit to the number of banks? Patches are limited to 128, I do believe, but I have no recollection of seeing a bank limit. Sorry if this is a trivial question.

We did decide to limit it currently to 128 Banks, since that's the MIDI spec. Originally we had no limit, but it seemed unnecessary - 128 banks seemed to be enough.
