Re: 3rd Party Plugin factory presets database for Logic

Tue Oct 13, 2020 9:10 pm

The method I use to collect the preset name of a plugin is by issuing a "Save as..." command from within the plugin GUI itself. That usually open a dialog displaying the current preset's name in text already highlighted (ready to be renamed and relocated). At that moment, issuing a copy command (either via Automator or KM) in order to later on paste it upon saving it as an AU preset.

This was never meant to confuse anyone, rather to make it easier for everyone by, for example, perhaps working together on converting a plugins factory presets. Some plugins have many presets that may require time, such as the UVI Vintage Vault 2 or other UVI plugins.

But nevermind all of this, I'll just stick to sharing factory presets :)
So I'll continue with this by sharing Au.presets for all of the Arturia Effects plugins.

Great, thanks!

We are working together, by each doing the plugins we have available to us.

BTW, I converted *118,000* patches for Dexed - I didn't get much help with that one, either..! ;)

If anyone is looking for a new synth to do, I think the PG-8X is a good contender. It's available as an unsupported AU, and I think the main issue with this is that it doesn't retain your patch when using its internal browser, HOWEVER, it works great using Logic's browser. There are lots of patches out there as it imports JX-8P sysex, and it is one of the best sounding free synths out there.

The AU version can be downloaded here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/e5oop1vf8vpl ... eezxa?dl=0

It works in L9, and in the very latest 10.6.

It would be great if we could get all the patches that are available out there converted. No need to sort them or weed out the duplicates.

I would like to do this - however, the existing AU version is old and buggy and unsupported and has lots of problems iirc. The dev continued to work on the VST version which is a much later version and works more or less correctly.

It's a good plugin and when I want to use it, I tend to use the VST version wrapped in an AU plugin host, instead of the native AU version (which of course isn't ideal.)

I really wish Martin would make an equivalent AU version of the VST, as it's really nice, but it seems he doesn't have much motivation to do it and hasn't worked on PG8X for sometime now.

I can have a look though, if it's doable and the AU version works I'll do it...

We are almost in 2021
Converting a preset one by one is so clumsy.
DAWs should be intelligent enough to read a plugin's, or a Kontakt library's patch catalog and batch convert it to native format. They should start to innovate more on the AI side then adding another plugin.
That is what computers are for. Make it compute :)

Unfortunately it's not that simple, as Logic has no idea what a plugin developer uses as an internal data format - there is no standard for this, and neither will there be as this is handled different by platform and plugin format.

So we do what we have to do to achieve what we want, rather than just sit and complain that it should be easier.

In many ways, preset handling for plugins is generally terrible, inconsistent, and implemented and supported differently for every developer. This is why we here want to move presets to Logic ones, because at least you gain some consistency...

Hello all, I've benefitted greatly from this thread and would like to give back. This is my first go at it, so I'm sure those of you who might download this first batch of presets for the PG-8X will let me know if I got it right. If so, I have many more to contribute. I noticed a few users were looking for PG-8X banks. I think I've found and converted most all of them. For those of you who have the plug and it's working in your Logic Pro or MainStage, let me know if these are working for you! I have 25 banks and will post in ten bank increments.

It's easier for everybody if you just compile banks and create one downloadable zip file containing all the banks, rather than making people do 30 different downloads and find them across multiple posts - so someone who wants the PG8X files can just do one simple download to get them all.

I'll give these a check and make sure they're working for me - thanks.

Edit: They work great - thanks!

They work great - nice job!

I do really like the JX8P/JX10, but don't really use the VST that much because of the extra hassle of using a wrapper. I'll use this earlier one (with these presets) more now, I think...

While it is a bummer that the PG-8X developer all but gave up on supporting this plug, it resonates with me as the JX-8p was one of my first synths. I do love the sound of the plug despite its shortcomings and while the display still says “INIT TONE” after loading a preset, all the parameters in the programmer so load properly so I feel like my work was a real time saver for this particular plug. Hope these preset banks give a bit of new life for a plug that while no longer supported but still sounds great.

Agreed, I'd love Martin to finish the proper AU version, it's a great plugin. He even had the MKS70/JX10 as a commercial version as a goal, but it appears he's moved on really.

Thanks for doing this! (and saving me the effort :) )

I've added this and some other recent additions to the index.
