tonedeaf, you'll need a windows installation
to run NAT on, unfortunately the sampler isn't
available for osx yet.
Vmware is a good option for such tasks.
Don't know about Crossover, though.

With regard to GDRIVE, how do you actually patch the program files? I have NAT and have downloaded the preamp and compressor "patches" that Giancarlo posted.

I understand how to get the .n2p files into NAT and backing up your program folder etc. Just puzzled about the actual patching process itself.

Any help or a pointer to a relevant post would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Colin


After you get the n2p files into NAT, click on patch, navigate to wherever you have put the patch script, and click save. Make sure to back up your n2p files before you start! Here is the text that was passed on to me. It's easy, have fun.

"Before doing a whole bunch simultaneously,
Giancarlo recommends to try one program of a
library first. The first step would be to make
a test program. You'll have to fire up Nebula
and select a preset of the library you want patched.
In the MAST page change both the preset name
and the file name! (click on the
name with the mouse and you can type,
the file name is a couple of lines below
the name on the same page). After renaming
the preset, a 'save as' box will appear.
Press that :). Now you're ready to patch this
new preset in NAT. After confirming it works,
you can delete the test preset.
Then it's back to NAT, select the programs
you want patched from the library, and patch them
all at once (or, if you want keep the unpatched programs,
you'll have to rename all of the programs you want patched,
and patch those, this is a lot more work of course).
Done!, repeat these steps for all your libraries
and don't forget to backup all your n2p files first!"

latest version of nat allows renaming directly, and excel import/export feature. So you could rename files, program names, patch them all at the same time

Just to clarify again, so if I have a windows partition in my Mac, I can run NAT on it, after I patch the programs I can copy them back into the Mac side and use them? Or it's totally not possible? Thanks everyone...

yes, that should work. i have encountered some kind of bug here though. i did an update for my cassette deck 1 set, which only renamed the programs to a nicer name scheme. for some reason that updated version doesn't work on mac. i checked and re-checked and the only difference was the names.

that may or may not happen to you- point is BACK UP your n2ps first.

Thanks for your replies Richie/Giancarlo. :)

Richie - in your instructions you mention "once you get the .n2p files into NAT click patch....." Everything makes complete sense; the only problem is that I can't see a "patch" button anywhere (screenshot enclosed).

Please help me to work out whether I am a)blind, b) an ignoramus or c)both

Thanks!!
