PCG Tools 1.6.0.

From now on I send newsletters. Everybody who received PCG Tools updates in the past is automatically added to the list. If you want to have PCG Tools and be updated, please subscribe (freely) at http://eepurl.com/u5Hk5

This is the newsletter:


Welcome to the first newsletter of PCG Tools. I will not send this newsletter often; mainly for announcing new updates like now.

MailChimp is a company being able to send newsletters free to a big number of people without me getting into problems due to spamming.

Besides that the advantages are for me that I do not have to maintain a list of emails anymore. And for you the benefits are:

You can subscribe directly
You get the newsletter all at the same time.
You can unsubscribe in a clear way.
If you want to change your email address or name, check the links further down this newsletter.

Main changes
The main changes in this version are new languages and a new installer. Besides that, a new way of delivering the application is announced. All will be explained in detail below.

Delivering PCG Tools
Until version1.5.0, PCG Tools was delivered as attachment. Because this resulted in a rejected mail once in a while (mailbox full) and big emails, I have decided to store the latest version on Dropbox and share the link here. The links can be found below.

This file contains the executable of PCG Tools as a zip file so a rename action is not needed anymore. However, to prevent anybody just grab it from there it is password protected with the password: PcgTools
This password will change after each new update and will be of course shared by this newsletter.

New Installer
Because version 1.5.0 did not install on Windows XP machines, I decided to use a dedicated installer (InstallShield) in contrary to the previous installer (ClickOnce). The benefits are:

PCG Tools is supported for Windows XP (SP3), Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8, both 32 bit/64 bit.
You can install PCG Tools on a self definable location on your hard disk.
Important note: the first time you use this installer (i.e. when installing version 1.6.0 or later for the first time), MANUALLY remove the earlier installed PCG Tools (details will be in the manual soon).

I will work on the manual soon and explain all details but I'm sure most people will have no problems using the new Installer. Remove the old file by selecting Control Panel, Software, Remove Software, select PCG Tools and remove. It may deviate for non Windows 7 OS's though.

Another benefit of the new installer is that from now on, files with the extension .PCG are coupled to the application PCG Tools. If you double click on a PCG file in the explorer, PCG Tools automatically will start with the selected PCG file. It only works when selecting a single file. If you select more, multiple instances of PCG Tools will start. PCG files will be recognizable with the following icon:



Languages
Due to some very fast working translators, PCG Tools will be supporting six languages (in alphabetical order):

Dutch
English (default language)
French
German
Portuguese
Spanish
I want to thank Honza Mikulik, Mathieu Maes, Francois Rossi, Yuma, .Jens, Rubens Sanches Felicio, 404bekawe, Mario Pablo Gonzalez Soto for their work so far.

Translations on Czech (Honza Mikulik), (David Craig) and Italian (Fabio Grimaldi) have started or will be started soon.

If you like to volunteer for translating PCG Tools in your own language, please reply. It takes about a single day work to translate (and check) all words.

You can change the language by selecting your desired language in the Language menu.

Due to the fact that some words are longer in other languages, a lot of screens have a different layout to accomodate the widest text needed.

PCG Tools Links
PCG Tools Installer
Password: (only shown for subscribers of the PCG Tools Newsletter list)

Social media links / Manual:
See the link in my signature below.

The new manual is uploaded after being finished with updating it to the latest version of PCG Tools 1.6.
Over 180 pages ... I don't expect you to read it all but if you want to know more about features, there's the first place to look.

Link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9d8y8tcyar693zs/Manual.pdf

Note: the link inside PCG Tools to the manual is incorrect (points to the old version; I hope to find a solution for it before the next release of PCG Tools).

PCG Tools 1.7.0

A new release with several new features, improvements, bug fixes and a new language.

Korg Trinity Support
From version 1.7.0, PCG files from the Korg Trinity, (both V1, V2 and V3) and Korg TR Rack can be managed. Version V1 will be show as V2 or V3 but behaves correctly otherwise.
SNG files from the Trinity are not supported.

Programs from the M bank can be copied to the S bank and reversed.

Sort
Programs, combis and set list slots (from the Kronos (X)) can be sorted in several ways:
- by Category/sub category
- by Name
- by Title/Artist

The last option might sound strange, but a special character (e.g. dash: - ) can be specified and patches having that character are considered having a title - artist or title - artist form.
The main usage is when you play in a band having the songs of a set list in a range of combis then you possibly order them in the order of your gig.
However, in the rehearsal room it might be easier to have them sorted by title or by artist. Or what you can do is copy the combis to another bank and have a different sorting on that bank.

You also can sort multiple banks at once.

Move through open windows
With the F6 and Ctrl+F6 keys you can easily move through all open PCG or Combi windows.

Synthesis type shown
Until version 1.6.0, program banks and several other generated list showed either Sampled or Modeled programs. From now on the correct synthesis type is shown, possibly different per workstation model.
E.g. for a Korg Kronos: EXi or HD-1 is shown, for a Korg Trinity Z1/Moss or Access, for a Korg M3/M50 EDS and so on.

These types and also the workstation model is shown in the status bar when copying programs.

More list generator options
Text filtering can be performed on drum kit and wave sequence names.


More improvements
Also a lot of other improvements are implemented. See the list at the end for more info.

Bugs Fixes
Several bugs have been fixed. The most important is the Master File support for the Korg Tritons and Karma.

Translations
A new language variant (Portuguese for Portugal) has been added.
Also all new texts have been translated by some great translators willingly to spend some time to perform this task.


More external link
More external links / logos are added.

Complete list of changes
Code:
1.7.0      27-Mar-2013  Support: Added support for Korg Trinity, Trinity v3, Trinity Solo and TR Rack.

PCG Tools now has an own home page ... just one page yet but possibly in the future I will extend it.

From there all important links are gathered. I still will use FaceBook and KorgForums as discussion threads and announcements.

I will only send newsletters for feature releases (like 1.7, 1.8 etc), and high likely not anymore for manual updates. I will anounce manual updates on social media and on KorgForums.

The website is: http://pcgtools.mkspace.nl/

Also version 1.7.1 is released ... the most important change is the fix of the sort bug ... now everything can be sorted (programs, combis and set lists). You can download the installer via the home page. The password is equal as version 1.7.0 (see the code you received from the Newsletter).

I'm busy with sorting timbres, but due to lack of time and the added complexity it takes more time than expected. I hope to send out a new version next month.

Also, I calculated the total views for all PCG Tools KorgForums threads (where the main thread of course has the most views), and it has reached 100,000 now.

There are more than 1,200 subscribers (with more than 100 new subscribes this month) from more than 50 countries, spreaded among all continents.

Keeping you informed.

Michel

As you know I have annoyed all of you with the password protected zip file for PCG Tools. The main reason was to have a way to make sure everybody got the latest version by using the subscription model.

However, I'm going to change this. Subscribing will still be possible and has benefits, but it is not necessary anymore. The benefit is you get automatically an email when a new version is published or for important communication regarding PCG Tools. The next version I hope to launch in January.

Please always download the latest version through http://pcgtools.mkspace.nl, because only on that website you can assure you have the latest (and virus free) version.

A message for subscribers: in case you don't like the subscription method, you can unsubscribe if you want (losing the notifications of course). Currently there are over 2,300 subscribers, so I want to thank you for that. However, I cannot send any mails for free until the subscribers reach below 2,000. But please don't unsubscribe en masse lol. If in January there will still be more than 2,000 subscribers, I will maybe manually removing the latest subscribers. Sorry for this inconvenience. To get PCG Tools until the next release, you still need to subscribe.

And of course I wish you a happy christmas and enjoy the holiday.

A bug has been found in PCG Tools, namely that the program/combi bank EXB-H is not supported. This will be fixed in the next release of PCG Tools.

New website: As of today the new website layout is launched at http://pcgtools.mkspace.nl/ . For you the most important is that the password has been removed. Also more information is shown and the information is split into several pages. In the future, I hope to add more useful information whenever necessary. Enjoy the site!.

Because of the password removal, the subscription to the newsletter to acquire the password is not mandatory anymore. However, there still is a benefit: you will get email notifications when a new version is there. However, on the downside, there are currently 2,400 subscribers and due to the Mail client I am using I cannot send any emails when there are more than 2,400 subscribers. So for those who do NOT want to have email notifications, please unsubscribe from the newsletter list ( http://eepurl.com/u5Hk5 ). When I want to release the next version of PCG Tools and there are still over 2,000 subscribers, I will remove anyone above 2,000 to be able to reach as many users as possible. Sorry for this inconvenience.

In PCG Tools 1.8.0 there is an issue that the list generator for some or all PCG files from Korg Triton Studio/Rack/Classic will crash the application ... I'm working on it but it will take some time to fix the problem.

PCG Tools 2.0.0 is released. You can download the application for free as usual at http://pcgtools.mkspace.nl.

What is new?

Virtual banks for the Korg Kronos and the MS2000 (see the Virtual Bank files to be downloaded on the website). With these files, you can store 50 program and 50 combi banks, so you can keep all your patches together in one location. Of course you cannot use them directly on your synthesizer, however you can copy from/to that file like a big storage box. And if you need more than one file, just fill another Virtual Banks file.

PCG Tools does not support only PCG files anymore. For the Korg MS2000, microSTATION, microKORG, microKORG XL and microKORG XL Plus a variety of files can be loaded and managed.

Also Greek language has been added thanks to Dadanos.

Besides that the Set List Generator has been rearranged so it looks better (I hope).

Last but not least a lot of small improvements and bug fixes.

Kind regards,

Michel, developer of PCG Tools


See below the complete list:

Code:

2.0.0      22-Mar-2014  Support : Added support for Korg microStation PCG files.

Hi Michel:

I guess my only question is whether to install on my XP or Win 8.1 touchscreen, laptop.

Is it running natively better on one or the other?

Hi Michael,

it works on Windows XP (with SP3 only) until (including 8.1). I haven't tried myself but got positive results from others from both operating systems regarding running PCG Tools .. in case you can choose, I would suggest 8.1 since it's the newest and still supported by Microsoft.
