I have a bit time to improve this script. Is there any global requests except fast render (I can rebuild it from scratch using reaimgui) and container addressing just like readrum machine but a bit more advanced?

Great news for the community!

My biggest request (I posted about this earlier, sorry for repeating it) is to be able to 1) store/recall mappings and settings across projects, and b) have multiple instances of the Rs5K manager doing different things in a project.

I made some standard kits (808, 909, Linndrum etc.), and would like to be able to either 1) save a “kit” as a track template, or 2) export a file (.json or something), that I can load into a new project later. When I try this now, I can’t synchronize the RS5K_manager_MacroControls and the RS5k_manager_MIDIBUS_choke with a new instance of the RS5k Manager script.

I basically just want to be able to do as I do in Ableton: to have multiple tracks with drum racks, and to be able to reuse stuff in later projects.

Looking forward to see what you come up with

Best
Martin

Have a good day all.
Yes for instance i put the note repeat on the midi buss as an fx

My request is for an "option to assign samples to white keys only"!

The "cool_MK Slicer" does this by default, but it would make playing easier if the "MPL RS5k manager" could do it as well.

You seem to be "advising" third party developers on the direction of REAPER, etc.

There are already tools to connect FX to FX in node representation.

Or you could certainly learn and make it yourself.
I think you will realize how hard that is.

Default Pad/Audio Problems

I'd really like to get this MPL RS5K Drum Rack script going but my Push 2 MIDI controller's screen shows nothing but the Push/Ableton logo. The touched pads show in REAPER but don't light up on the controller.

- Macbook Pro, latest OSX version

What are some solutions for this?



BTW thanks very much to the script-maker for producing this for us.I've tried using Ableton (my main DAW, instead of Reaper) but the video is almost always choppy when recording audio/MIDI to it.

Theкe is no such feedback to controller, but I think it is possible to implement using reaper sysex sending API.

I don't think that has anything to do with RS5k Manager. You might want to check here.

Default How do we replace this blue with white (visibility) ?

Just plain white text against black would be great

Default Workflow questions

how do we make the manager/drum rack appear only when the track it's in is selected?

how can we make a shortcut for
selecting its track > selecting pad "x" > importing a specific file into pad "x" ?
i'm sure this has something to do with "add custom action", but I'm new at Reaper and and am unsure about these steps.

thanks for your response, sir!

i'm not familiar with what "sysex sending api" is (i'm not coding savvy, btw), but i just started learning reaper so i'm very willing to go through the steps in achieving this if you have the time to walk me through it

Default ReaDrum Machine not working

Hello,

I'm trying to use readrum, but anytime I load a sample, the background color changes but no item name is showing and audio is not being produced from any of the pads, is there any idea of how can I fix this?

Maybe are you talking about my script? If so, here's the thread and let's talk there instead of cluttering here.

A few request if im not too late to the request party, lol.
1. "Detect Pitch" is greyed out. That's definitely needed.
2. "note repeat" ive integrated it into a template i made but its not the greatest integration as i currently use a track note once the note repeat is activated but the notes seem to go away. Maybe an added button that turns on the reaper note repeat plugin on the Input FX of the midi buss.
3. Layering of samples. I don't hate how its currently done, but idk if i love it either. When a sample is added it changes the color of the pad. No not the end of the world but its a bit cumbersome to go back and have to rename and change it. Is there a way to add a sample, and allow the pads color to stay the color it was and the name of the pad. For instance when i add a kick, it adds a kick, the kick pad is changed and the name of the "layered group" changes to note xx. Not a huge deal but again just a abit cumbersome.
4. The fx button, can it just open the rs5k instance not necessarily the entire chain? maybe as a right click option, or an option in the menus.

Maybe none of this is possible. Idk. But i love this script again thanks for the hard work!

Default Bug report and FR

Bug report:

Having an issue with dragging samples to different pads. I'm on MacOS Sonoma on an M1.

Please see here, I drag to different pads and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. You can see sometimes i'm trying multiple times to drag and nothing. Sometimes it also drags to the wrong pad.

I see when I try to drag, the box that says "drag pad" appears very far to the right so that might be an issue.

https://imgur.com/a/tfKs2OH

Feature requests:

1) When adding a new sample to a new pad, it adds a track in the TCP above the other tracks. it would be alot more useful having them add below, specifically because I want to keep my midi bus as the top track and it keeps on getting pushed down as I add more samples. But also, it makes more sense to have tracks add to the bottom.

Incase you don't know what I mean, for example: If I add a Kick on C1, Snare on C#1, and Hat on D1, my tracks show up as Hat, Snare, Kick from top to bottom. It would be much better for me if it was Kick, Snare, Hat. So that my kick stays at the top and the midi bus as well.

If this can be an option that would be great so that others who like it the way it currently is can keep it.

2) This one might be tough to code so if it can't be done it's fine. But would be nice. The ability to have tracks swap if we swap pads around. For example if I have Kick, Snare, Hat on the TCP and I swap my Kick on C1 with the Hat on D1, have the TCP swap as well to Hat, Snare, Kick. Again, not the most important thing, but my first FR is important to my workflow

Thank you so much for the script <3

one other thing, this is a bit specific but:

I have a script that someone else did for me that is working everywhere else EXCEPT my RS5K Manager "midi bus" track. it's so weird that it would work everywhere but there.

What the script does is check whether a media item is midi or audio, then performs a script depending.

This is the script:

Code:
 x, y = reaper.GetMousePosition()
local item = reaper.GetItemFromPoint(x, y, false)
if not item then return end

local take, pos = reaper.BR_TakeAtMouseCursor()
if not take then return end

if reaper.TakeIsMIDI(take) then
reaper.Main_OnCommand(reaper.NamedCommandLookup('_ebfd79aa93b64652aa71667ed43ae5a7'), 0) -- custom open midi and zoom
else
  reaper.Main_OnCommand(42575, 0) -- split at mouse cursor (snap)
end
the custom action that occurs if the item is midi will open my midi editor and zoom it the way i like it. when i double click a midi item on any other track, it works and opens the midi editor. when i double click a midi item on my "midi bus" track, nothing happens, ie the midi editor doesn't open. I have tried replacing my custom action with a native reaper action and i got the same result (ie: it worked on other tracks, but when double clicking my midi item on the midi bus track, nothing happened)

very strange. any idea why this might be?

thanks so much

Hello,

I may be a bit dumb, but I don't understand how to get a vertical view of rs5k drumrack modules.

Actually, part of the drumrack is cut :


any advices ?

Default What can you do with this?

Hi all
I've been using this script for sometime now and i just don't think the full power of it has ever been displayed. I've uploaded a track template designed to help new users go from install...to beatmaking.
Color coded.
Megababy seq/ drum map
midi item /drum map

I created a configuration called Reaper Remix. Many especially in electronic music use a sampler of some kind OFTEN. I've added many actions that are reminiscent of MPC workflow while taking advantage of Reapers best assets.

Default Children Chain Choke

Is there any solution for the children chain choke?
It doesnt seem to work at all. Im on windows running reaper 7.16
I have tried the js midi choke but it does not cut off the samples.
I am using actual samples in the RS5K Manager 3.27
but the choke group does not work at all weather
the noteoff is on or off does not choke the samples at all.
The midi channel shows RS5K_manager_MIDIBUS_choke is on
but nothing happens removed it and tried the js midi choke
nothing happens set midi choke to the keys of the samples
still nothing is working.
If anyone has been able to get this to work please let me know.
Not sure if Im doing something wrong or not but just doesnt seem to work.
I have been following the post
but I have not seen this resolved yet.
@MPL thanks for the script if i can get the choke working this will help out a lot.

I think you misinterpreted what i was saying. if you read through the history of that chat, mpl had said that he would like to implement a fully modular system. so that's when i gave advisement based off that. im aware its incredibly hard to do, and didnt mean offence or entitlement, i was just giving a suggestion on an idea he was sharing, incase as you say, he may have mutual interest. i didnt demand it or be rude, i was just giving some tips on what might be good

as for paranormal fx router, nope that does not do at all what i was talking about. in fact, ive spent over 40 hours researching whether reaper can do the modulation system i was proposing, made threads about it, discussed with others, explored DOZENS of 3rd party plugins and contacted support for those plugins when i was struggling, and still have yet to find a solution. this is because of one limitation in reaper: it can't connect more than one parameter in the parameter modulation link window. i do not wish to make this thread go on a tangent so i won't explain the details here, but just sharing that your suggestion is not the solution to what i was asking, and i'm sharing that i spent dozens of hours researching and trying stuff. it's something i want very badly so when mpl mentioned it, i was compelled to suggest features towards it

i def didnt mean it with any rudeness and i greatly appreciate mpl and all the devs and modders in this community.

@Digitt Maybe this is the part here.
https://forum.cockos.com/showthread....ar#post2771715

But it seems that MPL wanted to inspire `someone clever` to kick-start them.
Well, but if you were tempted to say, "It's you, MPL!" in a call-and-response sort of way, I understand how you would feel.

It is true that RS5k on REAPER is a very good sampler platform. I guess I'm wondering if we need a module-oriented design for it, and if MPL RS5k Manager or cool MK_Slicer or something like that could do that by exposing an abstracted API? Or would it need to be designed from scratch?

From what you said, maybe Bitwig has a wide range of API exposure in that area.
That doesn't mean I think REAPER should do the same thing, nor do I think it's wrong, but if we can discuss it constructively, that's better.

Sorry if I misunderstood.

@mpl When I register an audio item in Arrange View to the RS5k Manager,
it appears to be much longer in length.
Sorry, could you please check?

i wasn't referring to anything rs5k related, it was indeed a tangent message about suggesting to make a seperate, modular script

I have moved to reaper from bitwig. Bitwig has no API for this kind of thing unfortunately. and my reason for moving is cos bitwig is missing alot of workflow features and customization that reaper is amazing at. it's a trade-off, bitwig has the most amazing modulation system, but is lacking in other areas. reaper can't do cross-modulation at all and the modulation in general is nowhere near bitwig's level - it's just a tradeoff i had to make.

I do feel reaper should implement this. there are threads of people discussing it constructively, i tried to look for one of them but couldn't find it now. low energy atm, sorry. but yeah, ive discussed and explored this for dozens of hours in total. i doubt reaper devs will do anything anytime soon about it as it's not their focus. which is why i would love a scripter like mpl to try implement something, but i think there are still limitations in reaper that makes it difficult. anyway, not gonna continue this discussion here as i dont want to go on a tangent.

Bad design and core from my side. I would be very glad if someone can improve my work or better - build really easy to use, lightweight and at the same time very advanced and expandable sampler in plugin format.
Slightly off topic, but this is an idea to simplify the workflow involved with RS5k samplers.
I think it's a good idea in the grand scheme of things so far, but how do you feel about it?

`Script: mpl_Export selected items to RS5k instances on selected track.lua`

Change the "Set base pitch" dialog that appears at runtime as follows.

Screencast: https://0x0.st/XAOn.mp4

Drop-down list (labeled "Setting slot": ):
  • 01
  • 02
  • 03
  • 04

Checkboxes:
  • Assign to white keys only
  • Do not show RS5k window after execution
  • Do not generate MIDI items after execution
  • Loop the sample
  • Save this setting to slot

Radio button (labeled `Mode:`):
  • Note (Seminote shifted)
  • Drum mode

Label "Set base pitch":
  • Text box

Button:
  • OK
  • Cancel

Then, based on the settings memorized above, add the following action for a version that can be executed without the GUI dialog
  • `Script: mpl_Export selected items to RS5k instances on selected track slot 01.lua`
  • `Script: mpl_Export selected items to RS5k instances on selected track slot 02.lua`
  • `Script: mpl_Export selected items to RS5k instances on selected track slot 03.lua`
  • `Script: mpl_Export selected items to RS5k instances on selected track slot 04.lua`

This way you can work quickly and without interruption of thought.
It will be easy to use for sampling and assigning to keys during a live performance, or for working with custom actions.
Flexible automation could be considered, for example, creating a track, then running this script to create a sampler instrument and assigning the input to any MIDI controller as a single action.
This would be appreciated by the visually impaired and others, as it would greatly simplify their work if it could be performed without a GUI.

Since the RS5k sampler has many configuration items, this method also addresses to some extent the problem of increasing the number of variations in the scripts to accommodate each of them individually when scripts are created for automation.
If you want to add new variations, you only need to increase the number of setting items.

If you need a GUI library, consider this one.
It is accessible to the visually impaired and easy to operate with a keyboard.

Hey all, just writing to see if anyone knows how to make the pads default to white text only? I'm also getting mostly dark blue text and it's very hard to read... sometimes I get light green text which is fine too, but once in a while I get white text and that's by far my preference

Thank you!

Default Bug Report: Drag n Drop super inconsistent...

Hi, just tried this for the fist time, and it seems very buggy...

When I try to drag&drop samples from the media explorer then it only works sometimes.
- It won't let me drag samples on pads related to sharp notes. Dragging a sample on C#3, defaults to D3. Dragging something onto D#3 creates a child but does not play the sample when triggered, and does not rename the pad or create a new track.
- Clearing the rack doesn't always clear the names from the midi editor
- Sometimes a sample is loaded as a child and a new track is created but the pad doesn't load the sample or the sample name
- I can drag pads to other pads fine

RS5k Version: 3.27
Windows 10, Reaper 7.18
Daw project on SSD Desktop
Sample located on external SSD
