this is to inform you, that there´s a new software being developed and probably a lot of you have been waiting for something like this.
It´s called the KONTAKT GUI Maker and does exactly what its name implies.
No more tedious and cumbersome ui_control definition via code - let KGM do it for you!
With KGM, you can drag and drop picture files (GUI items) to a virtual KONTAKT window and from there further modify settings for them, arrange them and so on. When you are done, you will have a KONTAKT-ready script file generated for you.
Planned features for the first (v1.0) release:
- Load existing skript files and modify UI controls directly on screen.
Adding UI items via drag and drop.
Adding ui_sliders, ui_knobs, ui_menus and ui_tables via buttons.
Assigning basic operations to UI elements.
