Backward compatibility ogs xml format?
« on: November 11, 2015, 07:40:36 am »
In the topic about the ogs editor it was mentioned that in an earlier OS version the actual format of the export/import files was xml (as an experiment). Are files in this format still available? (perhaps on this forum) and if so, are they readable by the latest OS version (1.4.11) as installed on my desktop?

If so then perhaps we still have a way to edit patches externally..... which in my case would be a great help for the sequencer patterns.

Yes good point. All of the .ogs files I have posted in the past (up until 2015) in the Presets and Templates Zone, still seems to have the old xml-based format. I've posted a ton of stuff, but just two examples:

http://forum.arturia.com/index.php?topic=6915.0

(search for .ogs)

They load just fine into an Origin with the most recent OS. So it does seem there is backwards compatibility.

Interesting! I'll check what I can do with this. Do you remember which OS version you were on? I guess any stuff that was in later updates is nog accessible, but it looks like a "way in"  :)
