Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, Regarding the Copy Preset function, I shall be doing this again in the near future, so I shall make sure that I preserve the original soundfont, and then what 0.996F does to it after attempting the paste. Presumably this is what you are after. The combined soundfont is about 40 MB in size, ...

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, I have made a zip file containing three log files. The two dated ones show 0.996F importing some sample files and then doing a Purge and Save. After the Save, some of the existing samples (not the new ones) sounded corrupted. However, after the soundfont file was closed and Viena exited, wh...

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, I am pleased to report that with CSDispatcher installed, a log file is now being created. But I can't see any icon anywhere. So I do wonder whether it is on all the time, or whether I have control over it. (In typical fashion, the internet "reviews' of CSDispatcher are fairly mixed). J...

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, Sorry, but version E is also not creating a log file. I did a "Windows" Search for VienaLog, with no result. I am carefully following your instructions. Today I noticed a new problem being introduced by 0.996E. Although it allows me to hear the sounds in the Preset view, for some ...

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, To make sure, I have just added two more samples using 0.996D and done a Purge and then a Save. I then closed Viena. This time everything behaved itself. But again, no log file appeared in the SynthFont folders found either in "My Documents" or in "Documents". John Reimer

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth,

In adding 8 samples today to a small soundfont (one preset of two instruments) 0.996D did not scramble the samples. However, it did seem to do that when performing a Purge (but only after saving the Purge). Unfortunately it did not create a log file. I am using Windows 7.

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, What is frustrating is that it happens only very occasionally, with most additions causing no problem. What I do recall is that it is certainly not a case of matching up samples with the wrong splits. The actual samples are degraded, but I have not checked on how widespread the damage is.. ...

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth,

Bad news. 0.996C has now corrupted the samples twice, on normal non-complicated addition of new samples. I haven't yet managed to get it to do this with the DBWIN32 active.

Fortunately the backup file came to my rescue.

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Hi Kenneth, I believe that this time Viena 0.996C has reproduced the "Save after Purge" problem. Here is the debug link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/67344903/Purge%20Test%20Viena%200.996Ctest2.txt Regarding Mike's problem with replacing a sample with one of the same name, I have ju...
