changing drive letter

Postby pbattersby » Fri Jun 16, 2017 10:34 am

I'm using sforzando with Reaper on Windows 10 in case that's relevant. All my new projects reference .sfz files from drive D. Old projects reference the same .sfz files but they were on drive C and they might also have been in a different sub directory. Is there a config file I can edit to quickly redirect where sforzando is looking for the .sfz files? Otherwise I seem to have no choice but to reload every .sfz file in my entire project one at a time.

I've looked through the Reaper config file (the .rpp file) for the project and I don't see any reference to the location of the .sfz files, so I'm suspecting sforzando might be responsible for storing the location of the .sfz files.

Hi

Once 'bare' sfz files are loaded and saved in your DAW sforzando will store the absolute path and compress them in the plugin serialization chunk, and theres nothing you can do about it.

As an alternative in the future is to go to the settings tab and set "User files path" to your main SFZ file older (if you have one),
then all subsequent saves would reference this folder even if it is moved.

One thing that would make "user path" easier to use is if the drop down menus would scroll in response to the mouse wheel. Any chance that can be added to a (near :D ) future update?
