GT-1- How to import GT-100 Tone Studio patches to the GT-1
« on: June 06, 2017, 03:17:48 AM »

This seems to work,

1.) Use the GT-100 Tone Studio (for GT) to download Patch Sets and export them to a folder, or find *.tsl patches online to download to a folder.

(next step for windows - possibly other software exists for other platforms)
2.) Download JSONEdit, a special editor for JSON file, which *.tsl patch files actually are this type.
you will need to unzip the JSONEdit.exe file to a folder and add your own shortcut if required.
I have 'associated' *.tsl patch files with it, so they automatically invoke JSONEdit when "double-clicked",
 right click on a *.tsl patch file, and select 'open with' > 'Choose default program'
and find and select "JSON Editor"
and check the 'always use the selected program to open this type of file' check-box.

3.) Once your GT-100 Tone Studio patch bundle is open in JSONEdit, select "device" and note the sub-item window displays "GT",
 change the is to GT-1 and save the file.

4.) Open GT-1 Tone Studio and Import the recently modified patch file..... there it is in GT-1 Tone Studio ready to use. !!!

Just to follow on from Gumtown's post, if you have a Mac you can do the following workaround:

1)  Download your .tsl patches.

2)  Go to the AppStore and search for TextWrangler and download it.

3)  Highlight and copy this code:

Code: [Select]
import fileinput
import json
print json.dumps( json.loads(''.join([line.strip() for line in fileinput.input()])), sort_keys=True, indent=2)
Save this into a file called Tidy

4)  Go to your Terminal app and type in nano and press return.

5)  Once nano has loaded, press the "cmd" key and your "v" key to paste in the copied code above.

6)  Press "ctrl" and "o" and give this file a name of Tidy  You must use this exact file name.

7)  Press "ctrl" and "x" to exit. 

8)  Navigate to where you saved your "Tidy" file, it will usually be sitting in your home folder. 

9)  In the Finder menu select go > go to folder... and copy this folder name into the box:  ~/Library/Application Support/TextWrangler/Text Filters

10)  Once you're in that folder place your Tide file in there.

11)  Now you're ready to open up your .tsl file in TextWrangler.  Find your .tsl file that you have downloaded and right mouse click on it and go to
open with > other.  Scroll down your applications menu until you come to TextWrangler and double click on the TextWrangler icon.

12). Once the .tsl file is opened with TextWrangler press "cmd" and "a" to select all the text.  You will see a menu at the top of the screen called "Text". Click on this Apply Text Filter > Tidy JSON. 

13)  That's it!  Just press "cmd" and "s" to save the file and you can now open it up in your GT-1 editor.

Actually, I experience a problem after I've imported the patches into my GT-1 editor. 

When I have saved them, I can't navigate past them with the footswitch.  My GT-1 gets stuck on the imported patch.
