You are editing the module.xml within the zip? Shouldn't be a problem, but make sure the image filename has not changed. It has to match what is in module.xml. Note if you edit a module, you need to restart RackPlanner so the fresh version will be loaded instead of a cached version.

Probably the easiest way to do what you are trying to do is just use the ModuleMaker to create a new module.

Any chance an update could include importing multiple modules at once? My PC's a bit slow, at opening, so it would be nice to select the modules I want. I'm planning on using the Planner as a way to store patches I want to remember.


dougcl

You mean a multiple select in the Add Module dialog? That should be doable.


BananaPlug

I've updated the collection of RackPlanner resources I host at my Squiggletronics web site.

w00t New Library Browser! Click a filename to see what the module looks like, click a button to download it.

The ModuleMaker will probably be updated next. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Modules from ModuleMaker which have been offered to the library will get processed more quickly now. I added a bunch today.


dougcl

Ah, it took me a minute to see that I needed to click on the filename to get the preview, but wow, that's nice work. w00t


glau

Fist i´d like to thank you for that great job. Mushisimas gracias.

I have a question: Anyone knows how can i draw patch cords?

Thanks a lot


BugBrand

Awesome!
This all just gets better and better - thanks Doug & Steve for all your great work!


glau

Attatched some modules.

I need to add the Plan B model 37, but i only have the attatched image from ear page. please, anybody can add it to the planner?


glau

Hi Glau, use Rack Planner to create a jpg with the modules you want, then load the jpg into a paint program and draw the lines. Right now there isn't any line drawing in Rack Planner.

New features in the ModuleMaker utility:
Start by picking a format and side-panels start showing you library contents.

The first one shows a list of the Manufacturers found in that format's part of the library. Click to copy a manufacturer name to the form and a listing of that manufacturer's modules for the selected format appears. Each one has a download button and clicking the name of the module shows you it's picture.

Of course you can still write any manufacturer name into the form but this system will help keep spelling consistent and you might find that the module you wanted to make is already done.

Thanks to ModuleMaker users for all the contributed modules and thanks to Doug for the RackPlanner!

FYI: Browser issues - Some things don't work in IE6. FireFox is fine. If you notice anything awful let me know. It's all valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional so it ought to be okay in modern browsers.

Is there a way to DL everything at once? Does anyone have a zip file of all the modules?


BananaPlug

All of them? Early on I had a zip of each format but I got tired of keeping them up to date. When I get a chance I'll add a feature to the library letting you select several modules and download them all at once. Thanks for the feedback.

NP. I was building the system I have in the rack planner and thought it'd be easier to just DL everything in one pack. The pictures aren't that big. And it saves an hour or more of DLing each individual one, unzipping and organizing.


BananaPlug

The Library Browser now has buttons for downloading all modules of a particular format all at once. Hover your mouse over the download button to see file size and date. These collections will be automatically rebuilt as new modules are added to the library.


dougcl

Holy cow this is awesome. hyper

Hey, I noticed that there are quite a few Doepfer modules that used to be up there (at least I thought they were) but now they're gone. Should I create the missing Doepfer modules as time permits, or did you have a different plan?


BananaPlug

Really? The only thing I can think of is that I renamed some of the older Doepfer files that didn't have the format initial "E" in them. What's missing?

Glad you like the new feature.


dougcl

I think it's probably just me. I created some later and they probably didn't make it into your library.

Do you prefer module descriptions in the name now? Seems like a good idea.

Yes but not too wordy because they fill up the dialog box in the planner. At first I was going with whatever seemed predominant among the contributions but more and more I think the numbered modules need a word or two.

The early PlanB contributions were all like "Model28" but I think I'll rename them at some point like "M28 Tap Clk" or "M12 Filter" unless somebody wants to suggest something else.

Interestingly only a few of the Blacet modules have their numbers in the filenames.


dougcl

Got it. Thanks.


BananaPlug

I guess that was you who contributed a pile of modules last night. I've added them to the library. FYI, I have to change S&H to S-H because ampersands don't make for happy filenames.

The Plan B modules have all been renamed: "Model28" became "M28 Tap Clk"
Sorry if that inconveniences anybody. In the long run I think it's helpful.

At some point I'll try to get around to adding descriptive words to those Doepfer zips that don't yet have them.

The automatic update of the collection zip worked nicely.

One more thing: The Euro collection is now 129 files and almost 7MB.

DUDES!!! HOLY MOTHER OF FUCK!!!

Thanks for getting me to try this out again. The last time that I played with this we didn't have Banana Plug's awesome Squiggle-Tronics module builder. I just created every ASol module known to man. Awesome utility. Thanks, guys.

P.S. I left out the super-rare Filter1 as my only image of it is shit.

Wow! What a heap of percussion goodies that was. I had no idea there were so many different bass drums and snares in the AS line. They are available in the library now. My coffee hadn't fully kicked in yet when I went through them so I forgot to lower case some capitalized filenames, hope it's not too screamy for you.


Kent

Hey BananaPlug,

One thing that I noticed is that both Analogue Solutions and Analogue Systems are abbreviated as "AS" on the site. I've tended to prefer ASol & ASys. Would it be possible to change this in order to make for easier navigation and for the sake of clarity?

Also, the Doepfer 8HP Blanking Panel that I made (same size as the power inlet on their cases) came out as 9HP for some reason.

Besides these two things I must re-state my amazement at what a kick-ass tool you guys have provided. I wish that I'd gotten on board sooner.

3 x SlayerBadger! SlayerBadger! SlayerBadger! and a w00t
