DGPatchMaker is now open-sourced for quite some time, but got some polish in the last weeks again. I also added some documentation and an introductionary video.
What is DGPatchMaker?
It is a graphical tool to create drumkits for DrumGizmo for existing sample libraries. Creating the XML files by hand is quite a hassle, so I wrote this tool to help a bit.
What is the difference to DGEdit?
DGEdit was created to cut the freshly recorded multi-tracks after sampling the kit (possibly in a studio) and create a DrumGizmo patch out of it. DGPatchMaker is for existing sample libraries.
Where it was used:
- For the Salamander Kit
- For the SM Mega Reaper Kit
- For the DrumDrops sample libraries for the Mapex Heavy Rock kit, the Vintage Folk kit (11GB of samples!) and the Modern Folk kit
Currently, there is no support for
- Clicky-Kit/Image Maps
- Directed Chokes
- Improved Metadata (but this is under work currently).
How to use
Since writing a manual was too time consuming, I recorded a video about the usage of the tool to create a drumkit:
