Title: Editor for .pat files?
Post by: IFailedEnglish on May 03, 2009, 09:39:53 PM
I don't know if this is the necessary place to post this, but here goes. Is there any way to easily edit . pat files to sound different? I was playing some midi tracks and I noticed that the distortion guitar pat file was, well, inaccurate to say the least. There are a few other midi instruments that I want to improve, but first I need to know if its even possible, and if there is a .pat file editor out there. Thanks for any info.

I moved this to the Third Party: Other Utilities forums since you are asking about 3rd party applications to modify .pat files.  It appears that a .pat file has a special header with WAV samples inside of it.  You may be able to find a tool to extract the WAV and insert your own.  I don't know any more than that.  This is probably a job for Google.
