Are user patches for these pianos located somewhere on this website?

Or, is my only recourse to read through all of the threads and hope to stumble upon some that have been shared. 

Thanks so much! :-)

All of them are pretty much (like you said) scattered around the respective threads related to both pianos. 

Would be nice to have a user preset thread for the Synchron pianos. I have a couple to share.

Share them here, if you like.

Perhaps start a trend? :-)

Hi guys,

I have made this thread a "sticky" thread, so let's see who is ready to contribute.

Uploading zip files with the presets is the way to go 

Best, 
Paul

Simple Preset for the CFX in Player position.
I use this preset with headphones and my 7 years old notebook; did not test with speakers.
Only RoomMix + CloseMic are used, for performance reasons.

Best, Ben

When I accidentally tried to load Lucy's steinway presets, the synchron player just silently loaded it and gave no indicator that anything was wrong.  (Edit: to clarify, I think this happened because I don't have the steinway piano yet)

Would it be possible to make a more user-friendly warning that "hey, you don't have all the supported mic positions" or "you don't have this library for the preset you're trying to load" ?

In any case, not a big deal.

Also, attached is my first Yamaha CFX (requires full library) preset.   Also included a screenshot of VSL Master EQ I had used outside of the Synchron Player.  Cheers!

Here is my favorite preset for the Steinway D (Ribbon mic and Mid 2 mic taking the pole position with the Condenser mic and the equalized Tube mic behind). Hope you enjoy!

Best,

Mango

I've been trying a lot of different settings for my preferred CFX setup.  Here's another preset of my latest configuration, I think I'm mostly done tweaking.

Screenshot attached with the preset, shows the EQ settings I've been using.  The high shelf on the second EQ, it's currently off on the screenshot, but I've been playing around with it.  I feel there's just a slight amount of ligering resonances in high frequencies that can go away when using the high shelf, but I'm torn about also loosing the general brightness when playing the piano harder.

Also, I've attached a quick mp3 improv (with bad notes cleaned up) to demonstrate this preset.  Recorded with the EQ settings as shown on the screenshot.

Comments and feedback welcome, thanks!

I think mine (posted at the other thread) are available at the VSL site, or maybe they just show up there when I'm logged in because it knows I posted them and so links them to my account.

I'm kind of busy planning for my godson's wedding, but if I need to repost the presets here, I can do so -- I just don't want to junk up the server with redundant files.
