Topic: The anatomy of a .gig file--on a hex level

    The anatomy of a .gig file--on a hex level

    I was looking at a .gig file in a hex editor, and I saw the names of all the instruments. If I could find out the protocol on how this file is structured, I could easily write a program to dump a .gig\'s complete articulation list to a text file, making my review process a lot easier.

    Anyone know where I can read up on the structure, down to the byte level, of a .gig file?

    For instance, I already know the instrument (articulation) list starts at 0x00000D68, with \"ins LIST\". But the instruments aren\'t all clumped together.. there are huge blocks of data between each name.

    Hmm, you might have or have not noticed that there is a whole Chickensys Translator forum at Northern Sounds.
    Garth would be the ideal person to ask this question to, I bet he know everything there is to know about what you just asked......will he be willing to answer it though?

    Nevermind.. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] already figured it out. The .gig file is great. tells you how many instruments it has, too. I now have a script that successfully dumps ALL instrument names. woohoo
