Hi,

I have downloaded the huge Yamaha TX16W sample library compilation called the Aeolian fxp (https://soniccharge.com/forum/topic/594 ... 6w-library).

My problem is, I have never used .fxp files and don't understand how to load them!

According to the ReadMe file, I should:

1. Load an instance of Cyclone onto a track in your DAW, and maybe insert a splash of reverb after it.

2. set the track input to "MIDI:All Channels"

3. arm the track and turn monitoring on ...

4. import one of the .fxp files ... and play :)
But Magnus Lidström, the maker of Cyclone, wrote on the Cyclone forum:
Sorry, but Cyclone itself does not have a function to import .fxp files, you need to do it through your DAW.
So, how do I do this?

I use MuLab today. If I try to drag one of the .fxp files from the Preset library, I can't drop it on a new track or so. I have also installed both Cyclone and the TX16WX, and neither is accepting the .fxp files (or at least I haven't got them to do it).

So... how do I load the samples? And IF I need a TX16W clone, should I stick to Cyclone or should I use TX16WX? The reason I ask is that the latter i still updated on a regular basis, whereas Cyclone hasn't been updated since 2013.

(I am not interested in the sampling capabilities, just after the sounds of this library.)

Thanks a lot if you can clear this out for me!

The Aeolian fxp will only load in cyclone,no idea about loading fxp in mulab,but you'll get a quicker response over in the forum on how to load them

Ok, thanks. Was not sure of what the appropriate forum was as I don't really know what is wrong. :)

Hi! I just downloaded Cyclone today and I tried using the fxp but nothing works. How can I load them with FL Studio?
EDIT: Never mind, figured it out

Hi... I'm Aeolian, I compiled that zip collection, and since I use Reaper, I documented the reaper method for loading fxp files... but most DAWs are quite similar in this regard (ie most have an "import/load fxp" option at the top menu of the plugin window somewhere)

Glad you got it sorted... Im posting this in case other readers, who are not sure about loading fxps, come upon this thread :)

I've since added a small update to the collection, cyclone will now display the disk name if you hover the mouse over the floppy drive... ATM, it will just display "blank", regardless.

I can upload this small update if anyone's interested?

Needless to say, I didn't create any of these disks... I just compiled them.

Hi, I'm interested in the "small update". I feel as if there isn't enough sample disks for the Cyclone no matter how many there are lol.

Here you go :)

https://ln.sync.com/dl/77590ad70/zd2rbi ... 5-x8wyy6hk

Like i said earlier, this collection is essentially the same as before, but now the floppy drive will display the actual disk name, instead of "blank.img".... i did this because i kept dialling up killer sounds, and then forgetting which disk/fxp i had loaded!

Latest favourites are the "YE 42 String Section" disk, the NuEdge demo disk has a killer new age pad, the R&D-UK "Synth Group - Various Textures" disk has a performance called "JARRE_UN" that has to be heard to be believed, another called "WATERSPA" .... The R&D Viola disk ....SynthZone "Emulator OrchChords", "Alembic Bass" and "Symphoni".

No problem... I did the fxp library because I wanted to use it myself, and any other users with a penchant for ancient samplers and libs, may as well give it a spin too :D

If anyone wants to mirror it, go right ahead.

The biggest showstopper for cyclone, is the 16 note polyphony, which is OK for most sounds, but fails on layered, stacked sounds, and fast drum kit passages.

If you are actually brave enough to edit any of the disks/fxps, via the cyclone GUI, make sure you save your creation under a new name, so you don't overwrite the fxp/disk.
