How to add User/Custom Expansion Banks in VIP for the Akai Advance?

Has anyone figured out how to add user/custom Expansion banks in VIP?

On KVR they list details of the VIP update:

Expansion maps: Users now have the ability to create and export their own Expansion Map.

  • Hi Wesley,

    This feature means that if you created your own expansion category (tag), imported your presets (tagged with this expansion category), customized your mapping, etc, you can right click on the expansion tag and select "Export Expansion Map." Place the expansion map wherever you'd like. Think of it like a sub-category for your plugin presets

    This would be used in an instance where you'd like to share the expansion map with another user or import it into a later session.

    A lot of information can be found in the included User Manual (Help > Manual). I recommend to do a quick search through the manual if you need a quick "How-to."

    Hope this helps!

  • Hi Corey

    I'm quoting from you; "imported your presets (tagged with this expansion category)"

    Could you explain how this is done? I can't find anywhere in the manual how you can import presets with tags assigned to them. I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks

    • Yeah, I got it working in 2.0, but I still had to add the expansions manually. I am not getting any factory maps for Mark Knight or Rene Amesz. I don't even see files for them in the pluginmaps folder.

      Hi Bill,

      Sorry those still aren't showing up. Weird.

      I've thrown the maps into a zipped folder for you here:

      Hybrid 3 Expansion Maps

      Please make sure to unzip the folder and then you can drag the files out and place them in your User Maps folder. They should show up then.

      Let me know if you have any questions!
