That will fit my needs close enough. Looking at a single machine’s JSON would be be useful without need to copy it would be useful, but other than that…
Like Brad, I had a feeling that something had been done, but I couldn’t find it and started to doubt it!
So to conclude the post, as you didn’t give a link above , here it is, and I will check it out tonight.
As I said, my main objective is to just be able to work through all of my plugins (for which I need a list), find out where their data is kept (e.g. presets) and ensure I have a file sync task setup to ensure that is copied.
And of course the plugin version checker is really useful as well, as I am not 100% certain if I can get away with just syncing the DLLs.
That might be better left to a manual task to run the installers to do an update. For example the Arturia V collection insists on putting the DLLs in the wrong place for some instruments (need to check why) and if you then try and run the old DLL the synth quite often does not work until you put the DLL in the right location. I had that at practice last week. I had let Arturia do an update a few days before, forgot to check after the update and when I came to do Welcome to the Machine, the Mini V was not working. No sound and if you opened the GUI, it was just showing a red box, no controls. Put the DLL in the right place and it works.
Back OT, I am using FreeFileSync as a handy little tool for the task of syncing the computers. If people are interested I will post details on it. In fact it would be useful to share the info I find as well such as where data is located for the various synths, as there is no consistency and it can be hard to find, so I was going to make a list to ensure that I don’t forget again as I find them!
