Description Chuck 2011-11-11 13:04:43 CET
If I add and SFZ instrument to an orchestra, trying to load it into a
channel by right-clicking on the instrument and then selecting "Load
Instrument" and then the desired channel results in a "Failed to load
instrument!" error.  This happens even if I change the enging in the
desired channel to "SFZ engine" first.  I can load the instrument if
I do the whole operation in the channel itself (the rack-mounted unit
in the center), even if I choose "Select instrument from orchestra),
so the summary I entered isn't completely accurate, but I didn't know
how else to word it.  I want to be able to load an instrument directly
from the orchestra listing at the left, but I suspect it's assuming
the GIG engine, and there's no way to specify otherwise when adding
instruments to orchestras.  The instrument I'm attempting to load is
the Salamander Grand Piano, but I don't think it's specific to that
instrument, and the problem may also apply to SF2 instruments (I'll
have to check).

I just tried a couple of SF2's.  Same problem, so it's not limited to SFZ's.
Comment 2 Grigor Iliev 2011-11-23 22:38:52 CET
I added a combobox in the Add/Edit Instrument dialog, from which you can choose a sampler engine to be used to load the instrument. I think this fixes the problem.
Thanks for reporting this issue!

Thanks.  That works great!
Comment 4 Chuck 2011-11-24 10:42:30 CET
I spoke too soon.  It works great until I exit JSampler and restart it,
and then it reverts back to the GIG engine, so the engine isn't getting
saved.  Should I reopen this bug, or open a new one (since it isn't
technically the same problem)?

I've just committed a fix for this. Hope now it all works Ok.
Comment 6 Chuck 2011-11-25 05:49:29 CET
It looks like it's working properly now.  Thanks.
