Exception when loading bank file

Jan 15, 2013 at 11:07 AM

In PatchBank.cs, Load(Stream stream, int sampleRate), line 70, your code is culture specific:

if (!br.ReadLine(true).Equals("PATCH BANK v" + string.Format("{0:0.000}", BANK_VERSION)))
     throw new Exception();

For german users for example

string.Format("{0:0.000}", 1.0);

will return 1,000 (notice the decimal seperator). You have to use InvariantCulture info to make it work:

var nfi = CultureInfo.InvariantCulture.NumberFormat;
string.Format(nfi, "{0:0.000}", 1.0);

I've implemented a fix for this by parsing the float from the header and directly comparing it to the constant value.

Ok, though this fixes the issue, you are doing things much more complicated than they have to be. Since BANK_VERSION is constant anyway, why not make it a string constant and just do

public const string BANK_VERSION = "PATCH BANK v1.000";

// ... in Load method

Or, if you need the nicer looking format string, do

public const string BANK_VERSION = "1.000";

// ... in Load method

Or, if you need to do more complex checks, use regular expressions like

public const string BANK_VERSION = "1.000";

// ... in Load method
if(!Regex.IsMatch(br.ReadLine(true), BANK_VERSION + "$")) // $ = end of line
