supernova ii - midi device map for cubase ?

greetings,

i've just started using the cubase audio software and i'd like to get an instrument definition file for my novation sn2, if such exists. i've found one on the net, but apparently there's a format difference ; the one i got ahold of is a '.txt' file, and cubase is looking for a '.xml' file. does anyone happen to know where i could get this ?

thanks
dave

What's the contents of the txt file?  Chances are it is an xml file (Which are just text files, but text is formatted for xml) and just needs renaming as .xml .

If you open the txt file and inside it has header information and sectioned areas in < > type brackets then it's xml.

thanks for your reply, skijumptoes.
no, it looks completely different to what you're describing.
the first few lines are like this -

[cubase parse file]
[parser version 0001]

[device manufacturer] Novation
[device name] Supernova 2 OS 2
[script name] Supernova-2
[script version] Version 1.01

[define patchnames]

[mode] Performances

[g1] Performance A

Looks like you can drop that file straight into a patchnames folder, does this link help you at all? :-

I don't know how familar you are with Cubase file structures etc. to try the suggestions on there?  I would imagine that by using the import function within cubase it would require an xml file otherwise.

 

Also, have you seen this site:- https://pond.org.uk/cubase/

Has detailed information, and another SN2 patch file at the bottom.  Are you running an older Cubase version by the way?

i'll give it a try directly placing the .txt file on the disk, see how that works.
