I am having difficulty getting the renumbering utility to work. I think I understand the commands and relationship between samples, banks, presets etc. However, I am wondering how to run the actual program. Do I copy the exe to the folder where the syx file is and open cmd.exe, navigate to that folder and then enter the commands?

BTW, thanks to the fantastic community here for creating these tools and sharing wisdom :)

If you're talking about the presets for the Replicants sample pack, you shouldn't need to use the renumbering utility.   I have already created 32 versions of the presets bank to cover every possible iteration of user preset banks and user sample banks (4 user preset banks x 8 user sample banks = 32 possibilities).


If you have updated to the latest firmware which opens up more User Sample Banks, I will release a download for the presets that account for all those new locations, I just haven't gotten around to that yet.

Hi Shaw, no, I already have your super Replicants pack installed on my PX in U3 and sample slot 8! The challenge I am facing is to install the Goldbaby PPG, which defaults to U4 and sample slot 8. I was trying to avoid reinstalling your Replicants samples again and change the PPG samples to sample slot 4. I have installed the PPG samples to the PX (in slot 4) but I can't seem to get the renumbering utility to change the PPG syx file to look for the sample in slot 4 rather than 8.

It is most certainly user error on my side, I'm just wondering what the steps are to launch the renumbering program, file locations etc.

I'm not near a Windows box to verify, but I'll try to help. If the px-preset-sample-renumber.exe is in the same directory as the example-presets-u8-samples.syx (the PPG .syx), then open the Command Prompt (cmd.exe), cd to that directory, and run:
Code: [Select]
px-preset-sample-renumber.exe -f U8 -t U4 -o example-presets-u4-samples.syx example-presets-u8-samples.syx

That should renumber references to U8 samples to now reference U4 samples. The new filename (after the -o option) is the .syx that should hopefully work. Hope that makes sense.

If you still have issues or want me to try, send me a note and I can renumber it and verify the conversion happened.

Thanks a mill Jeff! I've realised that I had the order of the names of the original and new syx files in the wrong order. All good now. I appreciate your help, and of course, the renumbering tool!

Hey man.  I downloaded these.  They sound amazing! Thanks for your time and effort on these.  I know how long and difficult sampling can be!

Hi, when I try to download the Replicants Samples on the modulate.com page, I get a 404 not found error on the full sample pack and the smaller zip files also.
