I’ve had an ongoing problem for a couple of months now that doesn’t seem to be resolving itself. It’s been on another thread but I thought I’d revisit again with a new thread. I have had several attempts at creating a monster gigfile so that I can play to the crowd by selecting songs at random as the mood requires,
I have 20 setlists containing 20 songs each and have been trying to import them into a monster gigfile of 400+ songs. All sort of problems have been arising during the importing - such as:
- Some imported rackspaces have the “Assign program change number” unticked even though it was ticked when exported
- I have tried imported the 400 in one go, but GP never gets past half way before it freezes then crashes
- I have tried importing by alphabet groups and this works ok at the start, but about halfway (around about the M or N’s) the freezing and crashing happens again.
- The bass vsts (UJam) I use loose the latch feature and the interface becomes uneditable i.e. mouse clicking on the edit doesn’t work and they act as greyed out. Surprisingly, If I export from the monster gigfile and then import that into a new gigfile, the bass vst comes right and I can edit again,
I have been working on this since September and have deleted several attempts at building this monster gigfile that have failed every time.
I seems to me that there is a fault in the GP import mechanism that only becomes apparent when trying to import large numbers of rackspaces.
I am at my wits end over this. While my setlists work fine for an hours playing, I still want to have the option of a large gigfile that will allow me to choose songs at random. Is there anyting else I can do to make this work?
