It transforms the console output from the mess you posted above into something more comprehensible.
I don‘t think it‘s mandatory so you should be able to compile without it, but on the other hand installing this is pasting one line into the terminal and then you‘re set. Check out the link to the GitHub repo I posted above.
maybe i will write a stupid thing but...
i remembered when working with RackAfx that Will Pirkle created his rompler with integrated (hardcoded) samplepath to do this thing (bidirectionnal) and explained in his book that with streamed samples it's not possible. so it seems that Kontakt don't "stream" samples, but load them before in temp memory to do this.
sure it's a great function. but i prefer without but with streamed samples.
Not sure of this... Must have confirmation by someone else...
You will need to learn to script if you want to do anything more than the most basic tasks with HISE - or any other similar development environment.
HISE has built in cycle round robin per sampler via groups (like Kontakt). You could use one sampler per velocity layer to get RR per velocity but that would be a huge waste of resources. Realistically you will need a script for this.
You could add a background image without scripting but you will need a little scripting to get this to display as a main interface for your instrument.
If you're scared of scripting then you are not going to be happy about VST exporting, have a look in the documentation and tutorials for more info :)
Thanks so much. I've been messing with Maize and it is OK, really wishing it had more effects. HISE is cutting edge and there is a huge need for it, so excited to see where it goes. My biggest issue with HISE right now would be exporting to VST.
