there are so many patches around for Organelle these days, I think its really hard for anyone that wants to have something specific to find it.
we can see this by quite a few threads on samplers, saying I need a sampler that does X.
I had the same dilemma the other day, I just wanted a sampler to play different drums on different notes (very simple), but had no idea, even if I just restricted myself to the C&G patches (there are lots )
there is the ‘patches category’, but that’s not easy to search really, nor is patchstorage (and is incomplete since its not got C&G patches)
is this a common problem? or is it perhaps just samplers? as sampler is a very generic term, compared with the variety and features of the sampler patches available?
(i.e. if you want an FM synth its relatively easy to search for one!)
perhaps we should have one topic, an ‘overview of patches’ topic.
which just lists the patches with a short description, of whats is useful for… no details, no controls, no marketing
anyone could add entries to it, but the thread would only be for this (no discussion/question), and of a particular format to help searching
e.g. an orac entry would simply read.
(link could be patchstorage link, or a link to a topic here on the forum, doesn’t matter really, a jump off point for some more info)
if the topic just contained nothing other than patches, with brief descriptions, it would still be long - but probably still be manageable.
and because anyone can create the entry, its not putting a burden on the developer.
(theres a requirement for users to search before adding entries to avoid duplicates)
I guess the difficult bit is coming up with a short enough description that it can be read quickly (too much detail, makes the exercise pretty pointless, as others wont read it)
… e.g. how do you differentiate the different samplers, which have very specific characteristics, which make them unique…
anyway, that’s just one idea…
perhaps someone has a better idea for collating patches?
perhaps a wiki would be better?
perhaps just some posts from users who use different patches, and they say which patches are the ones they use regularly, and what they find them good for?
its a great problem to have, as there are so many good patches out there, just a bit overwhelming if your look for something particular
or perhaps its just me, and I should be organised and write down what the difference is between sampler style, loop rec, distributor is !
