While using Components is the safest and easiest way to send Packs to an SD card (via having a Circuit Rhythm unit connected) it is possible to connect the SD card to an SD card reader and manually configure Packs for use on the unit. For SD card compatibility, see this article. An example is attached to this article and is a good starting point for creating your own, as well as the other packs from Components.
You must use the latest firmware, as there are changes to improve support of SD cards.
To achieve this, the folder layout must be done matching the following:
The easiest way to set this up will be to send some packs to the unit first, particularly for any Patch and Session data, as this will be harder to set up yourself. The folders are:
- Parent folder named Rhythm
- Subfolder with Pack name, Pack name must start with a number beginning with 0, this will be the second available pack on the unit, matching the display below:
Inside each Pack folder should be 4 folders:
- GridFx - this folder contains a .ncg file generated by Components which has the Grid FX settings. This can be left out, Circuit Rhythm will generate a file for you with the default settings.
- meta - contains an automatically generated meta file used by Circuit Rhythm - just creating a folder is all that's needed
- PCM - this contains the samples to use across the 128 slots - numbered 0 to 127 - can be as many as 128 samples or as few as 1.
- Sessions - contains the Project files to use in the pack - once again this content is much simpler to set up from Components - these are .ncs files. Files are numbered 0 to 63.
Audio content should be converted to 48khz, 16 bit Mono to be sent to the unit. Note that there will be no warning if you have exceeded the 228 of sample time the unit can load. No sample can exceed 30 seconds.
Sample files should be named “Number in two digits__filename.wav” so for example “00_Kick.wav” which will be the first sample slot.
