How do I load .rtp from the table?

0 votes
I'm trying to load some rtp files using the global tempo control on the table but the rtp files don't show up in the browser. Only Default.rtp appears. I copied all the rtps to the Sessions folder. I see Default.rtp is listed as a folder and it contains three files, but my saved rtp files are just files with an .rtp extension. Do I need to somehow unpack them and convert them into directories for the table to recognize them? I can load them from the program window on the computer, just not from the table. Also, will the soundfont used in the .rtp load from the table as well?

The Sessions folder has the following structure:

Sessions/Name.rtp/

For each set of rtp files you will have to create a subfolder in "Sessions". The Default.rtp is actually a subfolder.

Within the subfolder there are rtp files. Make sure you do not confuse sessions (folders) with rtp files. They have the same extension but are different.

If you copy your rtp files into Sessions/Default.rtp you will be able to load them with the tempo object on the go.

Best,

OK, I think I understand now. Just some feedback: I think the Reactable software is a little threadbare when it comes to file management  and browsing and I would like to request that in future versions, you add some sort of file management system like Ableton has that enables you to package all your sessions and RTPs. It would also be great if you had a companion program for prepping the .WAV loops to be loaded into the table, like warping in Ableton. Sometimes it doesn't loop correctly unless I set the table tempo to the exact tempo of the loop and then lock the pitch. Even then it seems to get confused by loops with glitches and triplets. Also it would be nice to be able to label the loop with the Key that it is in, so that it's easier to transition between Keys by transposing up and down. Right now I just analyze them and label the files, so it slows me down thinking about how many semitones up I need to transpose to get it in the right key.
