Hi guys (and gals).
I'm having a problem not with installing soundpools on my system, but with actually getting all of the samples recognised within the library of Magix Music Maker. I know for a fact that it has something to do with it's inability to pick up on long file names that don't have an underscore for spaces on many of them.
I did at one point see a video that explained how to use a program called Advanced Renamer to actually put the underscore in those filenames, without having to trawl through all of them and manually putting_the_underscores_in_cause_it_would_drive_anybody_barmy (the number of times I just hit the bracket key in that alone was almost enough). So I've tried looking through the forums on the AR website, and I looked for any useful 'how to' vid on Youtube, but they're all about just clicking on 'adding styles' which isn't what I'm looking for. So I was wondering (as well as hoping and praying), if anyone with the voice of experience (if not expertise), could actually tell me how to do this with Advanced Renamer, cause I'm afraid logic isn't exactly my strong point.
I get filenames in my sound samples from the soundpool in subfolders which are in turn in folders given a name to indicated their 'style' (rock, chillout etc).
The filenames might look something like
Grand Piano A.ogg
Grand Piano C.ogg
Grand Piano F Sharp.ogg
But they need to look like
Any help would be appreciated....I know this is probably in the wrong place, but I am using Windows 7, and Magix Music does work on 7, it just refuses to handle long file names like it should. Magix has been asked about this numerous times, and nothing has been forthcoming from them, so I really have come here as a last resort to finding out how to get this sorted out.
Thanks for reading this.
