In fact - I think I have a working prototype of a strip sharing mechanism working... 8-)

It exports the strip data, and binary image data and knb file data into a single file and then explodes the data back out into separate files when you import it...





That's great ! I really appreciate your work.
Usually I don't write on forums but this time I had to share this.

That's an amazing script Leon. I just bought Agent too (but it crashed on first load). I'll try this for sure.

Hats off to you!

Agent 1.4.3 is totally stable here with nebula eq`s in Reaper

But lbhms is right

the Nyrv Development for Agent is painfully slow


in Agent 1.4
-8 slot only pr page is limiting,
you dont want to use two pages for one eq, believe me i have tried, it looks and feels totally ridiculous LOL

-The small grid is limiting for any design and layout
- you must manually fill in all values + no way to resize text, very time consuming
- you need some photoshop skills to make anything look decent IMHO

once set up with Nebula eq`s that uses max 8 slots
i still think Agent is a very good program for my use

but a lot of things should have been fixed though for faster setup in Agent 1.5
and they was going to but no ETA on 1.5 release
the 1.5 lite version was even going to have resizable grid
it was announced a long time ago
so this long development is a bummer

LBX Stripper looks very very promising lbhms :)

i love how you can resize everything including the text
and it seems you have a lot more headroom for placing knobs+you can have different sizes to knobs
which can lead to more realistic designs compared to the HW if the user want to

fantastic work ;)

does LBX Stripper support sliders too lbhms ?

i would love to create a Nebula A-P-I 560 eq in stripper for starters
which requires 10 slots as minimum

a couple of questions for you guys who is using bigger than full hd monitors, retina for example

are you able to see the values/text in Agent in high resolution screens ?
and what DAW+OS is Agent not stable in with nebula ?

Yes - sliders work in the same way as knobs.

You can also use the snapshots feature to save and recall parameter settings - so create custom presets effectively.

I really like Agent too - I just felt it might be 5 years time before we get some of the requests we've been asking for. I particularly like the way it would host the plugins to keep Reaper's track slots free - which is something not possible in Stripper, but I think Stripper works just as well in making Reapers mixer less important with regard to working with plugins.

Of course my script is Reaper only, so cannot be a solution for everyone.

Hey but seriously... Your LBX Stripper script is the best thing that has happened for the Nebula workflow inside Reaper...

I'm starting a strip for Alex B. 4k eq. Question : I know how to use illustrator and Photoshop, can you tell me how/where to place img in order to create custom graphic elements ? Thanks :)

I'll join soon the thread concerning LBX on the Cockos forum.

Yeah - just place any background image files in the LBXCS_Resources/graphics/ folder. Then you will see them next time you start the script in graphics edit mode.

Also - for info: Vertically stacked images for controls would go in the LBXCS_Resources/controls/ folder and must be accompanied by the .knb text file with the relevant image information as mentioned before.

Let me know if you have any troubles. I've not tested all image formats - but I know jpg and png files are fine. Whatever Reaper allows to be loaded via its gfx.loadimg A*I.

Haha - A P I - no I'm not talking about the hardware company... :lol:

By the way..I found out that you can add peak meters to the strip. You can see in this photo.


Just checked out your photo - nice strip!! Just in case you hadn't found out - you can mouse wheel over the offset slider (in CTL OPTIONS) - if you wanted to move the Volume labels further than the slider allows (so they aren't on top of the control). 8-)

Nice work. I'm sure you know this well for AlexB EQs - but have you made the last band in the chain an HQ preset, and all the others LE? (Obviously I cannot tell from the screenshot).
