Organizing the presets in user-defined categories

Post by burnsound » Sun Nov 07, 2010 6:25 pm

I am tired of having 27 categories of programs to click through. I want to make my own.

I've gone into the xml program files and altered the organization of the programs within Nebula. This works... and I get it down to like 16 categories... but then it all goes back to the way it was the next time I restart- 27 categories. :cry:

How do I make the re-organization permanent?

Sorry if this info is located elsewhere, I looked.

Thanks

With changes like that it's best to delete the contents of the "temp" folder before changing or restarting. But a better way to change the categories is to use NAT.

Ok, I'm confused.

The xml files that are in the "Temp" folder- those are the files I've been modifying to try and create my own folder hierarchy.
So what other methods should I use to create my own system of organization?

(And I can't use NAT- on a mac here)

Thanks!

I wanna reorganize the order of the categories since i use most of the time the EQU category and is the 15th in my list.Can i make this to be on top of the categories?I just order some equ's in NAT to be in EQU category,not to be separate but i don't know how i can change the order of categories in NAT or with other method.
Thanks Enrique for the tips of the month on working with NAT.

Ahh, no NAt for you.. ok.
My next thought is that you may have forgotton to save your edited XML file in the Temp folder :idea:
Otherwise, it should work. Open the XML in the Temp folder, edit the category to what you want, then make sure to save it...

I'm not sure of any method to do what you are looking for, sorry bout that. Since it does not sort alpha-numerically in sequence, I'm not sure.

Yes, that's exactly what I have done- edit the individual xml files, and then save them. And it works... I open Nebula in my DAW, and the programs are where I want them, and unused categories are gone.

Except the very next time I open Nebula, everything is back to the way it was before I reorganized, and the categories I got rid of re-appear. :cry:

Those unwanted categories just won't stay dead! :evil:

Hmm, okay try this. Delete all xml's in your temp. Then open your DAW and open an instance of Nebula with a preset like an EQ for example. Then close your DAW and it should have rebuilt an xml. Now go to that XML and edit the EQ's category. See if that works. enriquesilveti he's on MAC so no nat available for him.
