You can now import ZenEdit mappings into the STOMPBLOCK client

Posted Leave a commentPosted in reSTOMP, STOMPBLOCK

In preparation for the upcoming release of reSTOMP (the card editor for the STOMPBLOCK), the client application now supports importing ZenEdit map files.

While you’re working in reSTOMP and typing names for your samples, it’s building a ZenEdit map file behind the scenes. You can then later import this file into ZenEdit (and now the SB client too) so that the proper instrument names are displayed.

This feature was released in version 4.8 of the STOMPBLOCK client and is available right now. You’ll find the controls for managing map files on the main Settings tab.

In case I forgot to mention it, the reSTOMP app is proving to be a real tricky beast!

Things are really starting to gel though, and you hopefully will be seeing a release before Spring!

Here’s a peek at the importer, with a handful of effects. There’ll be more in the final product.

Nearing the finish line!

I know it’s been quiet around here, but rest assured that the ZDS Shifter has been steadily moving towards a production-ready model!

We were initially projecting it to be available before the end of 2017 and while it certainly will be in final beta by then, I now expect to be accepting orders in early 2018.

A lot of spit and polish has gone into the interface and programming to make sure the final product is as perfect as can be!

As you can probably imagine, with a tool as flexible as the Shifter, there are a great number of setup permutations and scenarios to test — to the point where I’ve had to build out additional hardware testing rigs in order to automate it all. This has taken additional time, but it’s the only way to get it “right”. I won’t put my stamp of approval on each box until I know it can stand up to the abuse of the road and can perform 100% reliably on stage.

STOMPBLOCK Client now supports 3rd party cards

Those of you who have purchased John Emrich’s incredible Articulations #1 Card for the Zendrum STOMPBLOCK will be pleased to know that the editor can now display his updated instrument names.

No more having to reconcile the note numbers against the SB defaults!

This 3.0 version of the editor has also been overhauled at should be slightly speedier than its predecessor.

Happy trigger thump`n!


Almost here…

We’re still waiting for the final graphics to arrive, but otherwise, this is exactly what the finished Shifter will be.

In other news, the firmware is receiving its final tweaks and the software should be ready soon. There was a last-minute decision to move the interface into ZenEdit rather than require a separate install. Once all that’s done then it’ll be launch time!
