Forum Folder Structure Autobuilder v1.1

Forum Folder Activator Autobuilder v1.1


Unzip this file direct to the root of the Beatmaker 3 browser, it will create the folder structure for the forum resources.
There are two ways to do this, it takes a couple of seconds, see the video above.

You do not need to do this, all resources will still work, however, on my packs i put in the extra effort to put everything in to individual folders for easy browsing, so if you don't create this structure and you try to load one of my banks, you will need to search for files and resave on each bank, and when i update the bank, you will have to do it again.
You can always create this folder structure at any time manually too, but this automated method is super quick.

V1.1 Updating
If you have previously created the Forum Folder Structure, you have two options.
1 You can run this activator again, it will auto add in the new folders, you may want to back up your Forum Folder first, it has worked every time here, but safety first (this will take 30 seconds or so depending on folder size)
See video below.

2 You can manually create the new folders, click inside the main forum folder, then create a new folder called Drum Hits, inside this folder create two folders, Acoustic and Drum Machines, so...
Forum/Drum Hits/Acoustic
Forum/Drum Hits/Drum Machine
See video below.

  • Oh, wait till tomo ;)

  • @5pinlink thanks for making this. I’ve been trying to be more rigorous with my file management and this a good way to do it (might clone for my own resources). thank-you again.

  • No probs, just means anything we share should akways work without sample search :)

    Yep definitely less time dicking around with searching for files is a good thing

  • will there be a complete version so you can just get all resources at once ?

  • No this is just a folder structure, there is no point doing that to be honest, if people add banks i have to rebuild the entire thing, when it is just easy enough to download and extract to the correct folder.
    Keep in mind you don't need to use this folder structure, it just works better with my banks in particular at least, because i spend a lot of time separating samples and then resaving, so it is a much more desktop like browsing experience (A lot better)

  • Nice. This is much appreciated.

  • When sharing new Bank Presets, should I follow this method?

    It may be worth while to either send them to me for reformatting, or both of us discuss how you need to format them, there are strict guidelines for the forum folder structure ala sample naming, so that they are unique enough that they will be found in a search, took a few weeks for me to work out that one well hahahaha.

    I have just set up an IRC chat if you want to join that.

  • How are you creating the MIDI files?
