    Stylus RMX - importing rex2 files using SAGE conveter

    Hi

    I'm trying to import a batch of rex2 files which I recently bought into Stylus RMX using the SAGE converter. The folders seem to be showing up under 'suites' in Stylus RMX when I select user libraries but there is nothing in 'elements', so there is no way to access the samples.

    In the actual 'SAGE' folder in the 'user libraries' folder it seems there is only an xml file named 'data' which obviously doesn't seem right. Here is the path:

    SAGE > user libraries > converted rex files > "name of folder with loops in" > data.xml

    To get to this stage I dragged the folder with the rex2 files in it onto the sage converter. I'm really not sure what Im missing here???

    Any help appreciated!

    The solution:

    I installed 'Install REX shared library' and 'REX_16_Installed.dmg' and that did the trick. Something to do with the fact they were in .rx2 file format.

    It is more something to do with the original folder structure from which you are importing that is not compliant. In fact the installer is based on xml that transform the original structure in a RMX compliant one.

    Could you expand on this?

    This is one program I find is totally un-Spectrasonics. It isn't dead simple easy and is frustrating if you don't go and watch Eric's tutorials. I imagine that a future version of Stylus (or whatever it would be called) will make this more elegant and Spectrasonicsized than the current way (which is old).

    I hope this helps, you have to run this program as Administrator and lo and behold the converted files are in RMX

    There's generally no need to run the SAGE converter on Windows as administrator. The only explanation I can think of is you've set the permissions on your SAGE folder so only the administrator account has permission to write files into it.

    there are two way to convert rx2 files into rmx library:

    1. drag and drop a folder containing a rmx compliant structure (file names under 32 chars, max 61 files per folder, etc.) into sage converter
    2. run an installer provided by the library producer

    In the second case the folder is still present but not necessarily compliant to rmx structure. The installer will render it compliant during conversion and generally this is based on a xml file read by the installer. So directly dropping the folder into sage converter doesn't work.
    I hope my poor english did the job.

    I love RMX.. but SAGE is well....not well integrated into the whole Spec suite.

    ie: The Sage converter is a huge departure from the Spectrasonics quality and ease of integration in their other software.

    #1 - RMX is still being 100% dependant on a 3rd party app for the ability to import any audio into RMX. You need Recylce in import even a simple drum hit. WTF!

    #2 - Recycle alters a file (the automatic fade out per slice - even with all envelope settings off - check this in an audio editor). This sure makes importing some waves difficult. Pads, vocals, etc. It is possible.. but you gotta be aware of this hard-wired fade out in Recylce and work around it.

    #3 - The Sage converter is a huge break in work flow. Awesome drum loop in your DAW??... now export that, now import into Recycle.. slice it.save it. Open Sage, convert it. Now create a new instance of RMX and open that new Sage loop. Wow... all to use one new loop or sound in RMX.
