Thanks to all remote names being the same in ModPanels and th corresponding Newtrol, it's quite easy to change one to the other. The .repatch files can easily be edited in a text editor like Notepad++.

A ModPanel8 repatch file will begin like this:

Code: Select all



    
        ModPanel8 CV Control Board
    
    
        

For Newtrol 8 the repatch will begin like this:

Code: Select all



    
        Newtrol-8 CV Control Board
    
    

These were saved with the latest releases of Newtrol-8 and ModPanel8. As you can see it's just two lines, three strings, that need editing/replacing.:
ModPanel8 CV  ↔  Newtrol-8 CV
.ModPanel8  ↔  .Newtrol_8
1.1.3  ↔  1.0.4

The same goes for the '12 & '16 versions, like:
ModPanel12 CV  ↔  Newtrol-12 CV
.ModPanel12  ↔  .Newtrol_12
1.1.3  ↔  1.0.4

If you have many repatch files, you can use some free find-and-replace tool, like 'FAR', which is able to e.g. quickly replace these strings in all repatch files within some folder.


I'm afraid there's no way to exchange one for the other in combinator patches though. :frown:  
I've put in a fair amount of hours trying to do similar find and replace in .cmb files, but in addition to strings, these files include binary information which will differ depending on the used RE (ModPanel or Newtrol).
