What better program to organize the PCG?

I'm using PCGTools, but it can not copy the patches with reference to Waves Sequences and Drums Patterns in different banks.

I need to go from patch to patch and manually change.

I use all three well-known Kronos freeware (PCG Tools, TidyKronos and the Kronos Editor) as each offers certain advantages over the others.

In most cases, if you copy/paste a program, the new duplicated one will not refer to waveseqs, drum patterns, etc. But references to waveseqs and drum patterns will be intact if you instead cut/paste a program. Note that references to combis might be lost depending on what you do.

PCG Tools can help to work faster for certain things, but as you found out can also create additional work for other things. The other two freeware keep all references intact when you know what you are doing, even though initially it looks like they are not as fast (but with them you avoid additional work later).

I want to copy 127 patches that are in a PCG I bought, but several progs and combis have references to new styles of Waves Seqs and Drum pattern, I want to easily put everything in my PCG without having to edit.

I've already seen that PCGTools does not do this.

Which one of those you quoted, do you?

Did you download and try the freeware I mentioned ? They are good tools to help one organize everything in a Kronos. Of course, nothing will do all the work for you without effort or some editing.

Hi, when time permits in the next few weeks, I should be released my kronos.factory librarian, which should do what you want, as I have written it to allow me to do that. I.e. If you copy a Program to a new file, then Wave Sequences and Drum Kits and Drum Patterns will be copied as well. If you move a wave sequence in a file, then all references made by Programs are updated.

PS: You can check out the beta version, highlighted on this thread, to see if it does what you want. If it doesn't then let me know and I'll see what I can do.
