    [HOW-TO] Custom Band Instruments

    Simple to Achieve yet hard to make, first of all, I am not pirating at all... I got the app on my own... by buying it... now for the step-by-step process.

    Instruments Sounds

    A hypothetical way of making instruments i made is here but not tested, can someone to confirm..

    Make your instruments sounds.. preferably 4-14 samples... More if needed!

    1. INST_[your instruments name here]_1.wav, and number the instruments 1-however many you have
    2. Simply place the instruments in to bands main folder. Now instrument files!

    Instruments Files

    I have made base instrument file called test, get it here. this is basically a skin for audience, but a new app playing the audience!
    Now steps to make it tick!

    Before we get on the instrument playing part we display the amount of triggers i.e variables...

    Code:
    name="Test"
    background="INST_Test_Background.jpg"
    numTriggers="2"
    1. First open up the test file. the code for one of the tappable areas should be this! (left side)

    Code:
    1.x1="0"
    1.y1="0"
    1.w="178"
    1.h="240"
    1.sample="INST_Audience_cheer2.wav"
    1.volume="1.0"
    1.attack="0.01"
    1.release="-0.008"
    1.loop="1"
    1.nocull="1"
    1.graphpath="INST_Audience_Left.png"
    1.graphx="87"
    1.graphy="128"
    Rundown on variables!
    1 = Trigger 1
    x1 = x position
    y1 = y position
    w = width of the pad
    h = height of the pad
    sample = the sample used, it directs to a wave but somehow uses a mav...
    volume = the volume of the instrument, decimal form. up to 1.
    attack = Rate of increase of volume
    release = length of volume to drop after release
    loop = how many times you want the instrument to loop, 1 to loop on and on, 0 to not loop
    nocull = I do not know yet...
    graphpath = name of the instruments image file
    graphx = where to place the image when tapped on x axis
    graphy = where to place the image when tapped on y axis


    Save the file as the next number in the sequence, first would be 7, after 8 etc. and place it in the band main folder.

    You are done

    Picture of it

    Maybe I'll try that. I just remember that in the jailbroken releases if you used custom instruments, it would cause the app to crash after a couple minutes.

    Thanks for this Guide Man.
    I hope some people will also make their own instruments and share them with us.
