New update: 0.4.1.140

Kronos bugs solved
Sorry not interesting for you guys (and girls).

Window size
For people using laptops or notebooks with a small screen: when making a window smaller and close it, the next time it will open in that same size, so you don't need to make the windows smaller every time you open a PCG window or a combi window.

Updated bar sync
And also when a combi window is shown, the status bar is now showing the data of the accompanied PCG file.

Below the full changes:
Code:

0.4.1.140  15-Jan-2012  Improv:  Windows are opened at the same size as when closed the previous time.
                        Improv:  Updates status bar with PCG info from a focused PCG window/combi window.
                        Bug Fix: Prevent crash when combi banks selected in PCG window when I-A is not present (Kronos only).
                        Bug Fix: Prevent crash/corrupt file for OS1.5 PCG files after moving/compacting patches (Kronos only).

New update: 0.5.0.148

Support for SNG (Sequencer songs) files
In this intermediate update, for the first time SNG files (created by the sequencer) can be read. Its functionality is not that big, but it is a start for more features regarding these files.

As can be seen in the following screen shot, the song (names) inside the SNG file can be shown and the used samples. I hope this helps you with easy viewing the most important information of your SNG files.

In the next update I hope to show which programs are used but this will take a lot of effort.

See the screenshot below for the the new screen (consisting of two tabs).



Multiple file selection
Multiple PCG or SNG files can be selected. Since it can take some time to load multiple large files a wait cursor is shown. Also for saving files a wait cursor has been added.

Already opened message improved
Now the file name of a file that is loaded multiple times is shown only once and the file name is shown.

File saving improved
Previously, a file could always be saved. Now this is only possible if the file has really changed.

The status bar shows the Triton model and file type (PCG or SNG)
It shows now PCG or SNG. Also for Tritons, a specific name is shown (like Triton LE, Triton Extreme etc). Files can still be copied from one Triton/Karma PCG to another.

Copy/paste/move up/down and compacting has been increased
It might be possible that this feature is very slow ... I removed some unnecessary print statement but I'm not sure if it has affected a version in the past.

Prevented unnecessary warnings when a file is already opened.
When the same file is already opened 3 times and is opened again, previously 3 warning messages were shown. This is reduced to only 1.

Below the full changes:
Code:

0.5.0.148  25-Jan-2012  Feature: Show song names of a SNG file.
                        Feature: Show used samples/sample files of a SNG file.
                        Improv:  Added two columns for set list slots: Timbre ID and name where it refers to. (Kronos only).
                        Improv:  Multiple files can be selected in the open dialog window.
                        Improv:  A wait cursor is shown while opening/saving files.
                        Improv:  When opening a file that is already opened, the file name is displayed with an info message.
                        Improv:  PCG file can only be saved if it has been changed (asterix symbol is shown).
                        Improv:  Status bar shows active file type (PCG or SNG).
                        Improv:  Status bar shows Triton model (i.e. LE, Extreme etc). Copy/Paste Triton in family works.
                        Bug Fix: Increased speed of copy/paste/move up/down and compact functions.
                        Bug Fix: Prevented unneccessary warnings of the same file being already opened.

Beta testers requested:

Because I made lots of internal changes and some small improvements/bug fixes in around a month time I would be glad if others would take some time to test (certain) areas of this application.

See
http://www.korgforums.com/forum/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=70251

If you are interested, please let me know.
Also if you are interested in proofreading the manual.

In case there are multiple people who like to test for the same workstation, I will split the functionality (and believe me, there is enough to test for everybody).

Thanks in advance.

For those who are already using the application or want to know more about the working of every function and setting: the manual for PCG Tools can be downloaded at:

www.korgforums.com/support/kronos/Manual%20PCG%20Tools.pdf

The manual is from Version 0.9 BETA while the (latest) application is 0.1.5 but functionally it is more or less equal. I hope to upgrade both the manual and application soon to 1.0.0 and continue to add functionaly afterwards.

There are lots of screen shots, tips and examples.

(Thanks to Sharp for upload, including future uploads for the manual).

New Update

PCG Tools 1.0.0

Finally, after about two and a half month since the last update I think it is time to get this application out of beta stage.

The application has been betatested and after not getting serious bug reports and fixed some issues I think it is safe to publish the application. However as always: please report bugs and issues and always make sure you have a backup.

Below is a full list of changes, there are no real features, except for the manual which is already published by Sharp (Thanks Sharp!) and hopefully he will upload the new version of the manual soon.

The counter of users is currently almost 450. Thanks for all the nice mails I have received until now.

The next topic to be covered will be cut & paste (as opposed to copy & paste). I expect the next update will not take another 2,5 months.

Kind regards,

Michel

PCG Tools 1.0.1: because the command for Move Up and Move Down were broken, a bug fix is performed.

However, another issue has been introduced which cannot be solved yet (see Known Issues List at http://www.korgforums.com/forum/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=410864#410864).

Also, until further notice the Move Up and Move Down commands only are active when exactly one patch is selected.

I will now concentrate on new functionality, since the Move Up and Move Down commands are now usable again.

Below is the complete list of changes:

Code:

1.0.1.167  18-Apr-2012  Improv:  Added Karo to External links window.
                        Bug Fix: To prevent issues, move up/down patches only works for single selection.

PCG Tools 1.1.0

Finally a new update. As promised, I would add cut/paste functionality.
Now programs, combis, set lists and also complete banks can be cut and pasted (and of course copying them was already possible and is not changed).

The main advantage is that when cutting patches and pasting them, all references will automatically be changed to the new paste location.
Cut/paste is only possible within a PCG file (otherwise you can use Copy/paste).

Small example:



Cut in this example program I-A000.

Then paste it to location U-G013. Notice that e.g. for the combination I-A000, the Kronos German Grand is automatically now referencing the new location U-G013:



Also some other items have been added or changed.

Of course the manual is also changed accordingly and probably will be updated soon by Sharp.

Below is the full list of changes.

Code:

1.1.0.168   6-May-2012  Feature: Cut/Paste functionality, renamed copy/paste occurences to cut/copy/paste.
                        Improv:  Changed text of hints in Cut/Copy/Paste settings.
                        Improv:  Removed Copy/Paste Help button and dialog text (not needed now manual is available).
                        Improv:  Added Supernatural Heroes to External links window.
                        Bug Fix: Prevented crash when clearing combis for workstation not supporting sub categories.
                        Bug Fix: Fixed keyboard short cut text for Move Up and Move Down commands in menu.

New update: 1.1.1
This should fix the cut/paste bugs of combinations and set list slots including related references. Thanks for the notifications and help finding the bugs.

Also some links are added.

Kind regards,

Michel
Code:

                        Improv:  Added Toon Martens Project to the external links window (and manual).
                        Improv:  Added kronos-mw, a French language Kronos site to the external links window (and manual).
                        Bug Fix: Prevented copying programs in the clipboard when cutting combinations or set list slots.
                        Bug Fix: Prevented wrongly cut combinations and set list slots including references.

PCG Tools update 1.2.0

After more than a month it is time for another update.

Actually it is more an in between update, because this time there is no added functionality, however maybe some of you like to see the new user interface. Also a bug is fixed.

And a new splash screen has been introduced which shows one of the several donators every time the application is launched. It is only shown for a few seconds so I am sure it will not be considered as advertisement. Actually, it is another thanks to those people who appreciated my app and donated a fee.

Below are some screen shots of the new splash screen, UI and thank you screen.

Splash screen example:


New UI example 1:


New UI example 2:


New UI example 3:


Oasys Donators screen:


Hereafter I will fix an M3 problem (if possible) and more SNG file functionality.

The manual will be updated later.

Below is the full change set.
Code:

1.2.0.174  25-Jun-2012  Improv:  New theme/UI look for the complete software (thanks to Vanni).
                        Improv:  Added splash screen with a random donator name/logo.
                        Improv:  New screen for thanking Oasys donators of Korg Kronos voucher codes.
                        Bug Fix: Fixed menu items for setting cut/copy/paste settings and exiting cut/copy/paste mode.

PCG Tools 1.2.1

Because some people notified me of several small bugs and because I could fix most of them reasonably easily I decided to publish an inbetween update with some improvements and some bugs being fixed.

The M3 v1/v2 bug is still in place and will be solved within the next 3 weeks hopefully.

The most important improvements and resolved bugs are wrapping the widgets in case of making the PCG window small (appeciated by users of small screens probably) as in an example shown below, the splash screen being displayed longer and the program IDs of banks U-AA to U-GG being displayed completely.



Below is the complete list.

Code:

1.2.1.179   1-Jul-2012  Improv:  Automatically wrap buttons in a PCG window to accomodate small screen sizes.
                        Improv:  Improved screen layout of a PCG window (stretched windows and visible scroll bars).
                        Improv:  File Save As now shows the current file name as default in the Save File dialog.
                        Improv:  In the list generator, the output file is not read only anymore.
                        Improv:  In the list generator, file related errors are shown.
                        Improv:  Added Music House (Muziekhuis) Lyana to external links.
                        Improv:  Name added to Oasys donators of Korg Kronos voucher codes.
                        Bug Fix: Widened program IDs of banks U-AA to U-GG in PCG Window (those were truncated).
                        Bug Fix: XSL files are only created in case of XML output is selected.
                        Bug Fix: Double clicking on scroll bar of a PCG window does not display edit window.
                        Bug Fix: Removed column reordeing in PCG windows to prevent other problems.
                        Bug Fix: After saving File As, the new name is shown in the PCG window title.
                        Bug Fix: Splash screen is now shown for 5 seconds instead of 0.1
