mtr data, list, recording and editing

February 26, 2010 | 2:18 pm

Hello everybody.

Does anyone know how can I edit the contents of an mtr object?

My problem is: in order to edit data recorded via an mtr, I am saving the list as a’(.txt)’ file, but later the mtr can not read it.

The question is: How could I convert a ‘(.txt)’ or a ‘(.pad)’ file into a ‘(.mxb)’ file?
I tryed just adding the ‘(.mxb)’ at the end of the file, but mtr can not read it.

Thank you.

mtr should be able to read text files. Could you post the contents of the file you are trying to read, perhaps you have inadvertently introduced a syntax error.

I ran into this too, if I save the mtr recording as text, it shows up as binary (and can’t be read in), and if I save it without an extension, it’s readable text. Strange. I would just save it without an extension, and you should be able to see the tracks/delta times in a text list.
