Is it possible to automatically create a new library by getting all sounds in a folder?

Hi!

New user here. Super newbie. But, love Hydrogen so far.

I was wondering. When creating a new library with my own sounds, is it possible to load all sounds in a folder automatically to different instruments? Or, do I have to keep doing it manually (one by one), which takes a long time?

Thanks!

i don't think it can be done manually especially if you want to export, and it unfortunate that you have to do it manually.

hi all

if you are running linux i wrote this little tool that can create a drumkit from a bunch of audio files :

I just downloaded the script. I'm trying to convert Soniccouture's brush kit with command:

~/scripts/createH2kit_V5.1.py -c flac -v -i Samples/

. Conversion keeps failing with error:

filename : Kik22psoR1.WAV
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/pgrino69/scripts/createH2kit_V5.1.py", line 795, in <module>
    RetValue = main()
  File "/home/pgrino69/scripts/createH2kit_V5.1.py", line 279, in main
    return CreateDrumkit(Input)
  File "/home/pgrino69/scripts/createH2kit_V5.1.py", line 648, in CreateDrumkit
    SampleArray.append(ConvertName(SampleFile))
  File "/home/pgrino69/scripts/createH2kit_V5.1.py", line 146, in ConvertName
    InstrNr=int(FullRef.split('-')[0])
ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: 'Kik22psoR1'

... with different samples. I've been moving the failing ones out of the directory, but after 10 samples that's getting a bit tedious :)

 

Any idea what's breaking the process?

Debian Jessie fully up to date, python 2.7.9
