    Cool, wish i had known about this project earlier, probably wouldnt have started mine. Though the apps could complement each other well. Mine fixes the xmls after u got a mess, neumas app prevents getting problems. would not mind looking at a collab as its the same technology.

    Well, I'm grateful you've made your version, @amiga909 😊 Options are nice and sometimes necessary for some. You could probably add some more functionality to it too, since youve likely learned a fair bit about the Code since starting the build.

    Some of you non-Facebook crew might not have seen my latest: a random Synth generator written in Python.

    Install and stuff is a bit messy as it requires Python 3.x, Pip tools and a couple of Python libraries (it's all in the readme text etc.). There's loads of configuration options to limit or ignore certain parameters. Really exposes the potential in the Deluge's synth engine.

    It's command-line only (so have to run it on your computer) and basically you supply a base patch number e.g. 250 and it will generate 26 random variations (250a, 250b, 250c etc.) based on the parameters you set. You then just copy the .XML files to the SYNTH folder on your SD card. You can run it without any options to use default randomisation and run it without any parameters at all to show the options.

    Hi @neilbaldwin .
    Thank you for what you do for delugians
    I've downloaded the random presets you've shared on Facebook and I'm impressed by the quality (and the weirdness) of them
    Could you please make a short tutorial on how to proceed when you are, like me, a dumb in computer languages?
    I've read the readme text but didn't help me at all

    I´ve started looking into making an editor (i´m a software developer), at this point i´m thinking standalone but also a VST version wouldn´t be unthinkable. The web editor is great but i really want to have direct connection with the machine and control over as many parameters as possible in real-time.
    I´m hesitating a bit since Deluge is quite simple to program on it´s own, but i think sometimes using an editor gives a better overview. Will keep you posted.

    I agree that the unit is pretty good just as a piece of hardware, but I do find it a bit awkward to read the shortcuts, esp. in poor light scenarios. I'm sure that will change when I have a better handle on it.

    I suspect I'm like quite a few other owners/users, who bought this gear, because I'm sick of staring at a screen, and using a mouse to make music.

    That said, I can't help thinking that perhaps if someone was going to create an 'external' editor/librarian, the most appealing to me - would be an iOS device. A touch screen (iPad) would be SO welcome. (I don't even have an iPad, but if it would allow me really fast configuration/arrangement of presets, etc., I'd consider buying one.

    (every time I have to write patch #400 which I've just created, into patch #4 - for instance, I'm really frustrated with the whole scrolling with a knob)

    Hey peeps,

    Yesterday I took the time to set up an MPE song in the Deluge, for use with roli seaboard blocks. This was a bit tedious, since I had to 'learn' the relevant parameters on a per voice basis: make a synth preset, map aftertouch to some parameter, copy the preset to as many tracks as voices i want, then on each track learn the midi note channel for that voice, and learn the 'Y' parameter (cc 74 for each channel by default on seaboard) to some parameter on each of the voice tracks. I realize this could be streamlined by modifying the XML directly. Is anyone working on a tool to automatically generate MPE projects in this way?

    I'm thinking of a web interface where you select an existing preset, map aftertouch, velocity, and cc74 to whatever you want, select the number of voices you want, choose a midi start channel, and the program automatically creates a Song with the appropriately configured tracks.

    Only just seen this as I don't visit here often (though that will change as I'm quitting Facebook completely this week).

    Do you need help installing or running the tool?

    Could you make a Javascript port of the tool, then i could include it in the web editor, should be easier for users to run :)
