Tool for rendering instrument plugins to samples?

Post by pdesaulniers »

Hi! I'm looking for something similar to the 'Plugin Grabber' in Renoise:

It allows converting instrument plugins to samples, by playing a range of notes one-by-one and recording the output for each note.
Does anybody know a similar tool?
I vaguely remember a program that did this... I think it had a Qt-based UI. However, I can't find it right now, so maybe I'm just imagining things.

Thanks!

If you manage to build this on an Ubuntu based distro please send me a copy :)

It seems like it's already available in the KXStudio repositories. Do you still want a copy anyway?

Yes please! I don't have those repos installed and would rather not install just for this app. Is there a way to access the repo packages without adding them to my install?

I don't know much about Ubuntu, so I'm really not sure. However, I think you could take the .deb from Launchpad directly (though I'm not sure if that's a good idea):

Code: Select all

wget https://launchpad.net/~kxstudio-debian/+archive/ubuntu/apps/+build/10577238/+files/synthclone_0.3.0+git20130916-1kxstudio2_amd64.deb
sudo apt-get install ./synthclone_0.3.0+git20130916-1kxstudio2_amd64.deb

Thank you. Seems it needs libzip2 which isn't in my OSs repos- (probably just the start of the dependencies I'm going to have to hunt down). I'll dig around tomorrow and see if I can get it working.

Sure you can get packages by hand if you want: http://ppa.launchpad.net/kxstudio-debia ... ynthclone/

Any idea what suil-libs is? Apparently this is another dependency I need before I can run this app.

It seems like suil-libs is a KXStudio-specific package.

I've forked synthclone and added a .deb that I built myself in the releases tab: https://github.com/pdesaulniers/synthclone/releases

Hopefully, this should be easier to install...

Ubuntu appears to have the package under a different name as libsuil-0-0 and libsuil-dev. It may work installing those although I didn't check the version needed. Shouldn't be a complicated package to build if you need to. You could always grab the deb from the kxstudio launchpad if you don't want to add the repo but seems like a lot of work for something that would be very quick and easy with very little consequences to just add the repo.
