SFF2
« on: September 07, 2015, 12:30:41 AM »
Hi Folks,
Can anyone let me know the name of a program so I can check a few styles to see if they are SFF1 or SFF2.

Thankyou in advance,

Adrian

Adrian,

You can also use MixMaster:

MidiPlayer also shows the style file format and included sections on the main screen.

See http://psrtutorial.com/MB/midiplayer.html

Hi  Everyone
Thankyou for your quick response to my question.

Piet, Mixmaster looks a fantastic program I shall study it later

Michael, your midiplayer is also good, I have used it before but I had lost it because of computer rebuilds etc over the years

Matrix, I have also previously used Style Format Finder and also had lost during changes, I have chosen to use Style Format finder at present for the job on hand because it is still clear in my mind how to use it.

Thankyou all,

I am very gratefull for your help

Adrian

MixMaster is certainly more powerful that MidiPlayer, but the latter is is simpler to use for some basic tasks.

Unfortunately, Microsoft's withdrawal of support for MidiPlayer's underlying code has made it too difficult to support for newer instruments. But getting a list of style file formats is one  area where it is more convenient. And this works for all instruments.

The goal of all my programs (since before 2000) has been "To give users the ability to work around common annoyances, overcome operating discrepancies between instruments, or facilitate the management of PSR files."

MixMaster does do more, but the underlying objective is what guides it.   

If you or any user has a unaddressed problem that is midi based (not registration or casm related), please let me know.

Regards,

Michael,

"Unfortunately, Microsoft's withdrawal of support for MidiPlayer's underlying code has made it too difficult to support for newer instruments."

That's why one of my laptops will always remain with Windows 7 installed; to continue using your (and Jorgen's) awesome programs. I did take advantage of the free upgrade to Windows 10 on my other laptop, which previously had Windows 8.1 installed.
Sincerely,
Arthur

Hi Michael,

Sometimes it is better to use a simple one job tool, I find that sometimes I can spend many hours to do a simple job on the computer just working out how to use a program, many hours of life are taken up by the computer

Adrian, another nice feature of Style Format Finder is that it can list the format of all style files in a folder. I'm not sure whether the other two programs mentioned have that feature as well, but it's very handy.

Right, Michael.

This feature is the reason for writing the program!

Michael:

Yes, both MixMaster Multi Process View and MidiPlayer's opening window display data from multiple files, selected from either in one or more folders. See attached.

Both programs allow you to view the midi data and Casm and the OTS(in MidiPlayer).

MixMaster supports a greater amount of viewing/processing/editing.
