I've renamed all of my personal presets, to be more recognizable in the context of which piano as well as close vs. stage etc. But the last time I tried to rename attachments here, it kept the old ones and added the new ones, creating confusion, so I'm just leaving it be for now, as I didn't really tweak any of the settings yet anyway. Hopefully the descriptions I provided earlier are enough to help, if the preset names are confusing or seem genre-specific where they shouldn't be.

I may have a couple more (new ones) to post shortly, and I did modify my Yamaha preset but I'm not posting it yet because it hasn't made it all the way through a production cycle, which is what I consider the proof in the pudding.

UPDATE (6 March 2021): I have tweaked all of my presets now, and was about to post them (including new 280VC and a heavily revised CFX), but then there were two updates by VSL (one to CFX and one to all of the pianos) right afterwards, so I need to integrate the new features and do a final review before posting, as well as see whether I learn anything from the new presets in Rabih's post that follows mine.

My presets for the 280VC (Standard library only).

- Reverb is off in the mixer but it's highly recommended to either turn it on or use a 3rd party reverb (like i do). 

- Velocity curve and sensitivity both left untouched. Up to you to tweak according to your controller. I personally leave everything at default because the 280 VC feels/sounds great to me as is when played through my Yamaha HS80M monitors. 

- Some volume adjustments were done on the upper range in the edit page. 

- Some minor frequency taming was done on certain notes on the upper range in the edit page.

Added a velocity curve to my previous post. I think it's a great starting point.

I'm new to the forum and the Synchron Steinway D-274. Someone in the thread said, "Just place the vsynpreset file inside Documents/VSL/Vienna Synchron Pianos/Presets." Is that all there is to it, or is there something else that needs to be done? I appreciate any help you might offer. Looking forward to getting to know this instrument.

Please note that Overture4 preset is also for VSL Synchron Concert D-274 not the VSL Yamaha CFX. You may wish to correct it in your post.

Hi - Thanks to everyone providing presets. I am new to the pianos. One question do have is where do I find the preset folder?

Here is more information about the preset folder.

Please save at least ONE custom preset, so that the necessary file structure is established.
