INI File format (Technical Docs)
This original document explains how the .ini files are used in Sound Quest's editor/librarian products. It is recommended however, that instead of editing the raw .ini files, you use the Instrument Editor portion of the Instrument Creator to create a properly defined .ini file.
The .ini file has one block called [Instrument]. All of the settings can appear in any order although for consistency, you might want to maintain the same order as Sound Quest uses.
The first 5 parameters must always be:
Name - This is the name that appears with the Instrument in the program. It can be any name you wish. In this example, you are looking at the file for the Korg 01/W.
Dir - this is the name of the directory where the instrument's files are located. This directory must be within the INSTR folder.
NumDrivers - This is the number of drivers used with the instrument
ID - The ID parameters list the file names of each of the instrument's drivers. If there are 8 drivers then there should be IDs ID0 through ID7. The drivers will appear in the order listed. This allows you to choose the order of the instrument's drivers. You should attempt to order the drivers if the instrument is hierarchical. Multi/Combi/Performance type drivers should be at the top with the other drivers below. In the example below, the drivers are loaded in the following order: Combi.Bnk, Combi, Patch.Bnk, Patch, Drums, Global, Sequence, and AllData.
The following is a sample .ini file. In this case it is the 01/W ini file.
Ins0=1 ; if = 1 then is part of the Set
