Yes, I know. But it is not a big deal to make it more useable.
If I have changed one (existing) track I have to “Force” export all songs. It needs hours.
In windows and linux/mac there are functions to compare the files and upload the new ones, the changed ones and remove the deleted ones. Thats build in functions. Why uTool did not use this?
It is very confusing to see after export in quick mode all tracks are still in the same version and nothing tells me that there is a difference between local and exported tracks. I could not know wich ones are changed by other persons but I allways want to have the actual versions on my disk I use on gigs.
This is not that easy as sounds. Using your computer you have the files on your internal drive. Easy and fast to compare to files which are the same and located in internal drive.
Using uTool you have a source (mono) files on your computer and you have a ready made content on the USB drive which can be mono wav files (LP-16) or multichannel wav files (uTrack24 and uTrack-X32) then you need to compare those files to the source mono files. Open each file from the USB drive then extract them to mono and compare to the local files on your computer. Believe me that will be also time consuming process.
In the meantime I had talk with the developer. That issue can be solved easily if the uTool use the timestamp provided by settings file. So once you change the wav files in your source (uTool) it will check the timestamp provided by the song on your USB drive if the two does not matching the song will be overwritten.
We going to implement this in the coming uTool version
Yes. The Tracks are numbered (1-16 for example). And so the no 11 comes after no 1 and so on. The tracks shoul be draged and droped as listed in the left window. Thats why they are (channel-) numbered – in my case.
If your songs named properly like 01; 02; 03 …. 10; 11; 12 you will have no problem with the order.
It seems a little bit weired, I know. Sometimes a song wich never has had a midifile but in quick mode has an error sign (no midi file).
If I go to the song and klick the trashcan nothing happens but the error sign in quick mode was not shown any more.
I recognized this after changing from 44.1 to 48kHz. After this change NO midifile was able to export in quick mode.
And some of the songs without midifile got the same error.[/quote]
To be honest you are the first person who report that issue if the song has no midi file. We need to take a look that issue. But it happens randomly I assume difficult to reproduce (and fix) this issue
