Hi,

I know it is possible to create new presets by selecting the root of a preset, editing it with a text editor, and pasting it into a new blank preset.

Are there caveats, for this? Is replacing the abbreviation of an instrument (say, "VI-14") and replacing it with a target one (say, "VA-6") be a safe operation? Would I end up with a Violas presets mirroring the original Violins preset, or would it end into a mess?

By the way, just wondering: is VSL making all their presets manually? Or is there a tool automatically arranging the patches according to a schema?

It would be really great is such a tool existed. Give it a template, and let it populate it with the corresponding patches from a particular instrument. Oh, the happiness!

Hi PaoloT,

I recently used the text editor to customize presets. I did it with the help of the manual and this video.

 Custom Preset Creation | VSL - Software Manuals

03 Vienna Synchron Player Preset Personalizzato EN SUB - YouTube

 

My advice is to always check the right name of the target library (say, "VA-6") by opening the preset in a text editor in another window, also with some libraries (like dimension libraries), the process of customizing is more complicated. You need to replace 3 (or more) things. Abbreviation, ID and Folder name

Erisno, thank you very much! I remembered those instructions, but I was looking for them in some grey area on the web instead of the official manual!

Another issue that I'm thinking of is the mixer presets. Are they compatible from a library to the other, or even between Synchron and Synchonized libraries? And what about Humanization curves?

Ok, I've replicated an instrument's structure into a new one. All the patches and humanization curves seem to have been translated well, if they exist in the target instrument.

But where are the Mix presets? I can't find them in the script. Is the only way to transfer them, saving and loading each mixer preset from the original corresponding instrument?

Yes. You have to load the corresponding mixer preset from the Synchron player browser section (in the right top corner - preset - patch -mixer preset).

If this doesn't work, create a Synchron player instance and load the instrument you want to customize. Then paste the customized content of the text editor. Also, check the key switches and range of your instrument. I remember that I had to adjust it manually.

Thank you, Erik. However, I only see, in the browser, the mixer presets for the selected instrument. So, I can't use the presets for Violin 2 on a duplicate of Violin 1. At least, as far as I can see.

Then you have to create 2 Synchron player instances. One for Violin 1, one for Violin 2.

1. Customize and copy the preset of the Violin 1
2. Paste it to text editor
3. Change the abbreviation, ID and folder name to match the Violin 2
4. Copy the edited text
5. Paste it to the default Violin 2 Synchron instance.

Now you should have customized preset of Violin 2 with the correct mixer presets :)
This is how I customize presets, but there might be an easier way.

This should work, but I see it is not very linear. At this point, I would file a feature request, and ask for a way to copy the mixer presets from a preset to another one.
