Dear PCG Tools users,

A new version of PCG Tools is released (version 2.5.0).

The most important items are:
- Program reference changer, useful for changing references to multiple programs from combis (or set list slots). I will add later in the KorgForums site and facebook more information how to use this feature.
- Automatic pasting of programs used by combis/set list slots with programs having a similar name but not mandatory to be equal.
- Added color/transpose controls for editing set list slots (Kronos only).
- Various bug fixes (like copy/pasting set list slots for Kronos.

The application can be downloaded for free at http://pcgtools.mkspace.nl

Below is a complete list of changes.

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).
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.

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).

I'm afraid not ... since the Trinity can read PCG files by itself, the need for converting into sysex/midi files is not really needed I guess.

True ... but I'm afraid I haven't support for that (nor I probably will have the time for that, sorry).

I can help you for the Trinity and the Triton (PCG ~ MIDI), but indeed, this is not in your priorities.

Thanks ... maybe in some future I can add it (or when I want to add MIDI capabilities at all). But if I make it for one model, everyone will ask to do it for all other models too.

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
