Gear.xml

From Jeskola Buzz Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Gear.xml file is currently used for:

  • making a machine load at startup (same as using * in index.txt)
  • blacklisting machines
  • disabling multithreading
  • setting default oversampling mode
  • setting default midi channel

Note that you can use * and ? wildcards in the Name attribute value. Possible attribute keys and values:

  • LoadAtStartup "True" or "False"
  • Blacklist "True" or "False"
  • Multithreading "True" or "False"
  • OversampleFactor "1" or "2"
  • MIDIInputChannel "-1" = none, "0" = all, "1" = 1, "2" = 2, ..., "15" = 15

The following example makes all Jeskola generators except "Jeskola Bass" use 2x oversampling by default:

<Machine Name="Jeskola*" Type="Generator" OversampleFactor="2"/> <Machine Name="Jeskola Bass" Type="Generator" OversampleFactor="1"/>
