XML to JSON not working properly?

I have Cabbage 2.6.5 running on Mac OS Catalina (10.15.7). When I try to convert my old .snaps preset files I just get a file containing null–any suggestions/solutions? Thanks in advance!

Hi Jon. I just tried here myself with a basic example and it worked fine for me. Can you send me a presets file and I will run it here?

I just tried with your decalog synth, and I see the problem. Your snaps files are one of the reason I moved to JSON. XML tags can’t start with a number. And you have a lot of channels that start with numbers. So I think you may need to update those channels before converting? I’m sure a batch find and replace across your .csd and .snaps file should do the trick?

Ahhh, that would explain it. Looks like I have a bit of editing to do! Thanks for taking the time to look and track this down! :slight_smile:
