A bug or not? Reload vs CDXtract
 
Ok i convert few of my AKAI discs to NNXT format.With Reload and with CDXtract. Once because of my mistake i reload two identical AKAI disc.

So when testing patches i found that CDXtract put on every NNXT patch "High quality interpolation" by default. This good. Technicaly and in theory even better than if this is not pressed ;)

Reload does not switch this option.

Also sometimes in some patches velocity and ADSR envelope may be different vs Reload. But always good points goes to CDXtract. Sound is more louder. Probably because CDXtract sometimes put different velocity parameters and ADSR settings than Reload.

So i ask is this a bug or there is some more in depth configuration tool for Reload?

Why patches are not identhical between this two (great) converters?


BTW i tested this with Spectrasonic Distorted Reality 2

I have been comparing these two tools as well as Chicken System`s Translator program. I think the difference is in how each developer chooses to interpret the Akai programming and translate that into settings for the NNXT. It is part art and science. Reload does a pretty good job but it`s free so you get what you pay for.

Right. Reload doesn't always properly interpret the source Akai programs. You can see this with the errors in the resulting html logs. I prefer to hand-roll my refills.
