PCG Tools 2.7.0 is released today and can be downloaded from the website (http://pcgtools.mkspace.nl ).

One of the new features is a new choice in PCG windows where you can select 'All Patches'. This shows all patches in a big list and most commands can be performed on different patch types simultaneously.

Also the normal program/combi/set list banks has a new feature: patches are selected from ALL selected banks. So you can use move up/down over bank boundaries, same as sorting, compacting, clearing, copy/paste etc.

Another new feature is made by mTrilby: PCG Tools will automatically backup every x minutes changed PCG files, which can be used to restore to older versions. mTrilby is the second developer (the other developer is KorganizR) who made a new feature to PCG Tools. If anyone like to make or improve a feature, please let me know (programming skills are required though).

Also the move up/down GUI bug has been resolved and links have been updated (like we have another Portuguese/Brazilian translator: Thiago Costa.

The complete change list:

Code:
Feature : New mode "All Patches" in PCG window showing all type of patches simultaneously.
Feature : Auto-backup of changed PCG files every x minutes (thanks to mTrilby).
Improv  : Patches from all selected banks are shown simultaneously in PCG window.
Improv  : Moving up/down patches (and most other commands) works over bank boundaries.
Improv  : Most actions can be performed on selected patches from multiple banks.
Bug Fix : Prevented crash when assigning a PCG file as master file.
Bug Fix : Fixed GUI behavior of move up/down buttons.
Bug Fix : Fixed header of File Content List, created by the List Generator.
Links   : Added several people, like translator for Portuguese(Brasil): Thiago Costa.
Links   : Fixed website link to Qui Robinez (creator of sound libraries/tutorials).

A new version of PCG Tools has been released (version 2.7.1). Russian language has been added (thanks to Igor Elshaidt). An internal bug has been solved by Mike Hildner (and maybe he will fix more bugs later, or even add more features). Furthermore some language texts have been improved (thanks to various translators), some bug fixes have been solved (like moving set list slots, Z1 and Trinity file reading) and some links have been added.

Internally also changes have been made and not all is tested. If you encounter problems, you always can revert back to 2.7.0. As usual the download location is http://pcgtools.mkspace.nl.

Full change list:

Code:

Feature : New mode "All Patches" in PCG window showing all type of patches simultaneously.
Feature : Auto-backup of changed PCG files every x minutes (thanks to mTrilby).

PCG Tools 2.7.3 has been released.

Bug fix: When moving, sorting or compacting programs, timbres set as External (Ext or Ex2) are NOT affected anymore (since these are not referencing to the moved programs).

Dear all,

It has been a long time ago, but there is a new version of PCG Tools (see http://pcgtools.mkspace.nl)

Major changes:
- Support for drum kits, drum patterns and wave sequences (although when moved, patches using them are not synced, I hope to add this in a later version).
- Splitting double to single setup keyboard layouts (Kronos only).
- Initialize combis as MIDI MPE standard.
- Patches can be shown in HEX/ASCII format.
- Various improvements
- Various bug fixes
- Various new links
- New installer (note that it might be necessary to remove the old installation of PCG Tools manually... to do this, go to Control Panel, select PCG Tools, uninstall it, and install the new PCG Tools 2.8.0).

Full list:

Feature : Drum Kits, Drum Patterns and Wave Sequences can be moved up/down.
Feature : Drum Kits, Drum Patterns and Wave Sequences can be sorted.
Feature : Drum Kits, Drum Patterns and Wave Sequences can be cleared.
Feature : Drum Kits, Drum Patterns and Wave Sequences can be compacted.
Feature : Drum Kits, Drum Patterns and Wave Sequences can be (de/semi)capitalized.
Feature : Splitting double-to-single keyboard set lists (Kronos only).
Feature : Initialize combis as MIDI MPE standard (for e.g. Roli keyboards).
Feature : Patches can be shown as HEX/ASCII for analyzing purposes.
Language: Several language words/fragments updates.
Improv  : All patches show as tooltip their empty/initialized status.
Improv  : Programs and combis show as tooltip their used drum kit/track info.
Improv  : Changing set list names directly updates the set PCG window.
Improv  : Cleaning set lists will also clean the set list names.
Improv  : Renaming set list names auto updates the screen (Kronos only).
Improv  : Song names and sample info from a SNG file can be exported to a text file.
Bug Fix : Prevented crash when pasting set list slots (Kronos only).
Bug Fix : Prevented crash when selecting MIDI Tracks in song file.
Bug Fix : MS200, MicroKorg and MicroKorg XL programs seen as modeled program (instead of sampled).
Links   : Added new window with personal links (Co-Incidental, Nothing Else Matters, Altran etc).
Links   : Added link to several donators and GitaarDemo (guitar shop).
Install : New installer.

Kind regards,

Michel Keijzers (developer of PCG Tools)

Dear PCG Tools users,

As you have noticed, it has been a long time since there has been an update for PCG Tools. Due to lack of time and being very busy with another project, I have (in principle) no time anymore to add more features. This does not mean there will never be any new release anymore. Maybe in some future or when I have a more time I will pick it up again. Or even better, maybe others want to continue contributing to PCG Tools.

Because of that, I made the source code available on my website download page.(http://pcgtools.mkspace.nl/download.php).

I will still answer questions about PCG Tools.

Also I want to thank everybody who helped me, contributed to it, posts bugs, had discussions and used it.

Kind regards,

Michel Keijzers

Dear PCG Tools users,

Despite my last announcement that I would stop developing PCG Tools there were a few bugs to be fixed. Therefore this new version.

See website: http://pcgtools.mkspace.nl

Code:
===   Version 2.9.0  Date: Sep 22, 2017

Improv  : List generator patch files optionally contain columns for set list slot reference ID and name.
Improv  : List generator file names now include the name of the PCG/source file.
Improv  : Exported Cubase files now include the name of the PCG/source file.
Improv  : Exported files from the song window now include the name of the SNG file.
Improv  : For all above items, whenever not set, the MyDocuments folder will be applied correctly.
Bug Fix : Program Reference Changer now only handles each patch once.
Bug Fix : Prevented crash when clearing duplicate set list slots [KRONOS ONLY].
Bug Fix : For the Browse button in the list generator, the correct folder will be used.
Bug Fix : When All Patches is selected, drum kits/patterns and wave sequences are copied too.
Links   : Created a special screen for people creating instructional (youtube) videos of PCG Tools.
Links   : Updated several donators properties due to donations (thanks!).

Kind regards,

Michel Keijzers (developer of PCG Tools)
