Having trouble recreate the SimplerSampler Example

Hello to the community, very noob user here.
I am trying to recreate the SimplerSampler Example
(A Live-style sampler in Cabbage)

I am on Windows 10 machine,
I have installed the Cabbage 2.9.0 version.
In the begging, I was trying to run the SimplerSampler example without the Python script.
After I realize that I need to install it,
I install first the “python-3.11.3-amd64” release, but I had some errors finding the py.dll and one more .dll file.
after some small research on the web, I have found that I need to set up some Python folders.
I Did that,
set OPCODE6DIR64=C:\Program Files\Csound_x64\plugins64
set PATH=%PATH%;C:\Program Files\Csound_x64\bin
(I did some computer restarts) still, the problem was there.
I got confused a bit with some documents regarding Python 2.7, so I remove the v3.11 and install v2.7, again some other issues appear so in the end I remove all 2.7 and re-install the v3.11.3)
and after some restarts etc these errors stopped appearing.

Now running the last version of the SimpleSampler example,
I don’t have any errors, but from the moment I am dragging a sample,
this error appears…

Sorry for my noobieness, but don’t know where else to find startup solutions. :slight_smile:

Hi @JohnCX, welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

What Python script? You don’t need Python to run Csound or Cabbage. If you get some kind of warning about Python, just remove the py.dll file from your Csound folder. I’m afraid you went to a lot of trouble for nothing :grimacing:

When you say last version, you mean the one marked jpdated? I just downloaded and ran it here without any problems. If I run the first version, I get compile errors like the ones you listed. But the updated version works fine for me. Can you double check you are trying the correct version. Maybe you can attach the version you are trying so I can make sure it’s the correct one?

oh God! haha niceee :)) completely wrong way then… :woozy_face: :innocent:

ok so here is the script…

I have added a script to change the colors every time you click the slot of a “SampleSlot”
(Ok I wanted only to change the label fontcolour, couldn’t find it, but for the moment this is fine, I will learn and work more).

And also I have changed the while iCnt < 16 to 17. Because when I was clicking on the SampleSlot16,
I couldn’t get the SFreqChannel(16)… I thought that the d% starting from 1 and not from 0, so maybe needed the 17 value there…

***Also, I tried to work with the “Grain3FilePlayer.csd” and load a sample without the OpenDialog,
meaning to have already a specific path and file in the code (like C:\test1.wav) and put it directly to the “gSfilepath” variable, so when the instrument is running to have it already loaded…but I fail completely.
I should do another topic for this later on.

By the way, thank you for your amazing/direct support here. :slightly_smiling_face:

Is the sampler working now? Or do you still get that error? I’m not at my PC now…

Probably best to start a new thread about this :+1:

No is not working.
The Sampler is running normally, I am dragging the .wav file without any problem and the waveform appears as expected.
The error message appears when I am trying to play the .wav file.

That error is because this instrument is only set up to play mono files. That’s mentioned in the video as far as I remember. You can modify it to work with stereo files if you wish. The filechnls opcode will help you determine if it’s stereo or mono. :+1:
