ableton live - save samples in buffer with live set


    Apr 18 2006 | 10:53 pm
    Hi,
    Im creating a pluggo for ablteon live, it's a little drum sampler with sequenser. The problem is that when I save the liveset the samples which I have put in my drumsamplers buffer~ are not there when I openup the liveset.

      Not sure if this will work but have you tried putting the samples in the Library/Application Support/Cycling74 folder. This did work for me with some files my pluggo was writing and reading to. This was on OSX

      perhaps also affected by this, if you have very latest versions < https://cycling74.com/forums/index.php?t=msg&th=18918

      why do you exspect them to be there?
      did you do anything for that? (like creating automation parameters for filepaths?)

      I didn't really expect them there, because I know there's something I need to do first. I just don't know what that thing is.

      well to save settings (of whatever kind) you have to create automatable parameters, that is the requirement to be able to save presets, and the ability to save presets is what makes your host program recall the last used status/save settings with project.
      you make things a plug-in parameter by connecting them to a [pp] object. to be honest, it is not the perfect, not the easiest solution to store filepaths to samples that way, but they only way pluggo suggests it by default.
      VST/AU/RTAS plug-in all can also store hughe data amounts as presets, but they all do it in a different way, this is only one of the reasons why pluggo does not offer that at all. (you might know that for example NI synths use always a propetiary format preset system in addition to VST and RTAS formats, for exactly that reason.)
      so if you really want to save paths i would suggest you implement a simple textfile export option. [capture], [coll], [dialog], [folder] and stuff like that are your friends there.
