Guidance for KangaSound XML downloaders

You can now download, free of charge, KangaSound XML files from this listing page, for unrestricted use in your own projects. Here are some guidance notes:

  1. In order to use a downloaded KangaSound XML file, you will need version 3 or later of the Kangas Sound Editor or Kangas Sound Editor QI installed on your computer.
  2. Download the KangaSound XML .zip file of interest, extract the XML file from the .zip file, and note the location of the extracted XML file.
  3. Next, import the extracted KangaSound XML file into the Kangas Sound Editor/QI from the menu item 'XML->Import...'. After selecting the extracted XML file, a dialog entitled 'XML Import Run-time Parameters' will be shown.
  4. The statistics at the bottom of the dialog tell you what is in the KangaSound XML file, in terms of number of Sequences, Tracks, Compositions etc.
  5. Before actually importing, press the 'Preview' button. This will predict what will happen when you actually import without making any changes to the data. If there are errors shown in Preview, you can often resolve the errors - e.g. by adding a prefix or suffix if there is a name clash, and then press Preview again to see if the errors have been resolved.
  6. When you are happy enough with the KangaSound XML file to import, press the Import button. This will commence validation and import of the file into the Kangas Sound Editor/QI. If there are errors encountered, you will be presented with a dialog that lets you examine them.
  7. When the import has completed successfully, you will need to compute the imported elements in order to generate .WAV sound files which you can listen to. The best way to do this depends on what you are importing (remember, you can tell what you are importing from the statistics at the bottom of the 'XML Import Run-time Parameters' dialog):

    • Single Sequence. Select the imported Sequence box in the Edit Panel, and press the Compute button.
    • Multiple Sequences. If there are only a few Sequence boxes, then you could select and compute each Sequence individually, and then select the Track they have been imported into, and then press the 'Compute kwik' button for the Track. If there are many Sequences, then an alternative strategy is to select the Track they are in, and press either 'Compute' (to recompute all Sequences in the Track) or 'Compute kwik' (to compute just the imported Sequences, and combine with pre-computed Sequences elsewhere in the Track).
    • Single Track. Select the imported Track in the Edit Panel (a vertical line should appear), and press the 'Compute' button. Next, press the 'Compute stereo' button. You then have a choice of 'Play' or 'Play stereo' buttons depending on whether you want to listen to the Track before or after any stereo factors have been applied.
    • Multiple Tracks. Firstly, apply the procedure for 'Single Track' for each Track you have imported. Next, from the menu select 'Track 0'->Compute. This will combine all computed tracks in the Composition into Track 0, including the imported Tracks (provided that each of the imported Tracks has the 'Include in track 0' checkbox checked). Finally, from the menu, select 'Track 0'->Play to listen to the re-computed Composition.
    • Single Composition. Firstly, ensure the imported composition is the current one - if not, open it from the 'Composition->Open...' menu item. Next, determine what Tracks are in the imported compostion. You can do this from the 'Composition->Open track' menu item. Finally, follow the procedure for 'Multiple Tracks' outlined above.
    • Multiple Compositions. For each Composition that you have imported, follow the procedure for 'Single Composition' outlined above.
  8. If you encounter any problems whilst downloading or importing KangaSound XML files, we recommend using the KangaSound XML forum to get help.
  9. If you use the KangaSound XML file in your own project and subsequently publish work based upon it, we request that you give credit to the user who uploaded the file in question, by including a link to this web-page, mentioning the username of the user who uploaded the file.
  10. Can you also consider, at some stage, uploading KangaSound XML files based on your own work to this web-page? This would help the KangaSound project to grow - without a sufficient number of uploaders, the project will always remain small and of limited value.

Guidance for KangaSound XML uploaders
