    For Windows, you guys can try the alpha application release, link here: Download.

    It works on my Windows 10 but some forum members reported that it doesn't do anything for them.
    Don't test it in your real library though, copy a couple of sounds/groups to a folder somewhere, run the app on that folder, add it to your Maschine library and re-scan.

    Open the folder with the application and type in a product name of your choosing and click run.
    After a rescan your library should show under its own thumbnail in Maschine.

    I went back to try this again and I noticed something...not sure if this helps or not..but with the Nimbank tool 'run' and 'exit' buttons don't function at all...

    maybe that's the issue?

    Disregard the alpha... Maybe it works on my Windows PC because I have python installed, not sure...
    Without anyone with more development knowledge to at least answer a few questions I cant make this happen without sacrificing either too much time or money, so anyone who wants to use this will have to learn how to use python commands with the original script (which is not that hard anyway...)

    It a shame, so many users here claim they are devs, for someone with a bit of experience this probably could be done in 15min...

    Can any of these methods allow me to edit the bank field of a NKSF file for the custom presets I saved for my vst plugins? I would like to arrange all my custom presets for my vst plugins under specific banks.

    Thanks

    OOOOHH :thumbsup:
    Electron is cross-platform right? Cool...
    If I can somehow help with anything let me know, I am no software dev but I have some graphic design skills.
    Are planning to make this open-source or private?

    Still not sure, at the moment you need developer skills to overview what is going on under the hood, or if something went wrong.

    Electron is cross platform, but executing the python code not really, since windows and mac have different path' / vs \
    So that needs some efford to coded properly crossplatform
    The plan is to add a GUI which shows the current embedded metadata when dragging one or more files to the app. Another handy feature would be that you can drag an image to teh app and it will automatically create the NI Resouces for you :) That would be even handy for 3rd party VST's...
    But coding all that stuff takes time, ya know time is money.
    Since I am a freelancer priorities are determined by the incoming money, so it may take some time, until I find some time to spend on this project :/
    Probably I should start a patreon action about that, than I could spend more time on it ?!

    I'd be more than happy to donate if this means the guts will get reworked for Windows.
