[b:42lxab3q]Question 1: What files need to be distributed after a build in the designer?[/b:42lxab3q]

I know the FEV and the FSB must be distributed, but what about the SEQ files?

[b:42lxab3q]Question 2: If I make changes to some parameters and [i:42lxab3q]NOT[/i:42lxab3q] the banks and rebuild what file(s) must be redistributed?[/b:42lxab3q]

For example: I make a change to an EVENT or SOUND DEFINITION but do not add or remove waves from the banks. What files do I need to redistribute after a rebuild? Just the FEV or FEV and SEQs or all of them?

FEV holds the event data, FSB holds the sample data. Thats all I include.

Just the FEV and FSBs need to be distributed.

If nothing about the banks has changed, you only need to redistribute the FEV.

However, it is possible for some changes to events to affect the banks; for example, if a waveform is used in both 2D and 3D events, the bank needs to have two entries for that waveform, one 2D and one 3D. Thus, changing an event from 2D to 3D could require a bank rebuild. This is just one example, there are other changes that could have a similar effect.

Taking the above into consideration, perhaps the best strategy is to rebuild everything in Designer after making a change, and then only redistribute those files which have changed. Those banks which have not been touched by the change should be unaffected by the build process.

Hope this helps,
Ben

Thanks.

However, when when I [i:3nrspa30]Build[/i:3nrspa30] or [i:3nrspa30]Rebuild[/i:3nrspa30] options, it always selects all the banks. Is it up to the user to only check the effected banks? In other words, the designer isn’t capable of detecting which banks have changed and only rebuilding those banks. Is it?

Yes, it is.

Of the banks which are selected for build, Designer will only rebuild those banks which have changed, based on the information in the .fsbcache directory (which is in the build directory).
