Sure thing. Let me know if you have any other problems (PMs, etc. are fine, too).

Just tried out the Editor again, for some reason it doesn't go to 100 on the DM10 Module?

You probably need to enable MIDI program changes on your module. Hit Utility, then MIDI (second button from the left under the display), then EXT (same button). Make sure "Prog Chng" is set to "RECEIVE" (should be OFF by default).

Once that's done, try relaunching DMEditor and see if that works.

Int he .zip file should be one .exe (the actual program), a directory called 'soundsets,' and two .xml files in that directory (stock.xml and bluejay.xml). If you don't have those XML files in that directory, the program doesn't know what any of the instruments are.

It might be wise to edit your first post (at the top of the thread) temporarily with the GDrive link until the website is fixed.

I did; check the line under the link. :)

I'm going to have to completely redo the site, as it's totally hosed. I'll edit the first post to clear that up.

Thanks very much, that worked fine, though to anyone else that might read this, you MUST store it after you set it to receive.   ;D

Any chance of a mac version?  I'm an experienced Java developer - as well as a drummer :) and I could help. Then we'd have a mac/windows/linux version.

I have just arrived on the site, and wanted to say AMAZING!!

I actually opted for the DM10 over the others not through cost but playability...

And now I have found Corvidae's genius....I am really excited... dig out the PC from the loft time!!

Splendid work!!! I am off to trawl the site for Hi Hat Trigger options now....Any Idea's for upgrading... really not sure about the Gen16 due to it being SOOO proprietary... thoughts?

Thanks again!

So all the kits on 00-99 were put on my slots 100-199. ? I want to edit the kits 1-99 but I want to have the basis of all kits all ready there.( for example I only want to edit like 4 sounds on one kit but I don't want to take the time to edit every sound in the module. As an example If I choose  kit 83  "Funk Pop", I want to be able to save it to 183(which I did) then edit it through this editor. Then I want to replace the original "Funk Pop" with the kit I edited in the editor. I want to have the base kits  such as "Funk Pop" then make changes to them by using the Computer Editor. Is this possible? Is there an unedited listed of the kits 0-99 that I can replace with the default kits in the editor?

Unfortunately, there's no way to export the original kits from the module. I could put in support for that, but it was mind-numbing enough getting every setting of the "Default" kit... doing another 99 would probably drive me more insane than I already am.

Your best bet might be to fire up the module and DMEditor side-by-side (but not connected) and duplicate the kit in DMEditor, going screen-by-screen in the module. Once that's done, you could connect them and tweak the kit from there.

Sorry there isn't really a better way to handle that. If someone wants to go through and document every setting on every kit, I can put it into another build.

You know, I was thinking about DMEditor today and realizing that a. I don't want to have to fix dmeditor.com yet again, and b. I'm pretty much done with it, so I decided to do something potentially foolish.

It's now open source!

If you don't know what that means, you can safely ignore this post; for those that do, let me know if you have any questions or improvements.

This is not foolish at all.

Now if we had a bigger library of kits, all would be harmonious in the universe.

If someone wants to "donate" a couple of sample kits, I could throw them in the distribution (hint hint)...  8)

I think we need to make sure anyone who donates kits specifies what hardware they are using and what conversions are in place on their kits.

Also please provide a step by step guide for donating kits.

When donating a kit it doesn't matter at all whether the pads are stock or mesh - what matters is the number and type of triggers connected to the module - single zone or dual zone; cymbals or pads.

The type of conversion has to do with trigger settings - not drum kits. :)

Fortunately, if someone makes a kit where Perc2 is a tom and you want it to be on Perc3 instead, you can always swap the instruments inside DMEditor and not have to adjust your kit. :)

OK, I understand. I thought we were also donating trigger settings which I think we all agree are essential to the playability of any kit.
