MIDI Device Manager : a patches list format inquiry

Yes.

I had a closer look at the templates included, and they are tab separated text files.
This is good news because we can copy-paste one of these in a spreadsheet (be it Excel, openOffice Calc, not a difference), and then after deleting the empty rows, we can work with it and paste our patch names and banks/sub banks.

Here’s a screenshot with editing the xg names.txt

I’ve made some changes just for testing (device name and other header info, a bank, a sub bank and two presets) and then saved it as text (tab delimited) in Excel, at the scripts folder:

Entering Cubase->MIDI Devices, I successfully imported this script with the patches as shown here:

So, with a little work, an import of patch names will work :slight_smile:
