Excellent idea! I'm definitely down. I'm at work now, but I'll get started once I'm home. Have you run into any quirks doing it this way? I was actually wondering if this was even possible over the weekend.
Great! Enhusiasm is what it takes to get this goin'.
Well, as for the procedure, once you get some practice it's quite easy (though a lit boring by the end of a 100+ preset bank
) but that's fine, and I actually found some really cool presets that I used to jump over. But once they are saved as .aupreset format, it works seamlessly. It's great to have all the presets available a click away even with the plugin window closed.
As an example, for the Absynth 4 presets, as they are "NI fashion" ordered, I simply select them by instrument, and start working from there (Piano/Keys, Organs, etc...) and save them on separate folders according to instruments. With Albino 3 it was a little different, because they already have they're factory presets organized in banks. So I chose one bank, and start from there. Again, saving each bank inside separate folders, to get things organized.
Hope this helps. And good work.
p.s.: maybe its a good idea to post a little note just to inform what plugin you'll be working on, before you post the actual files, just to avoid having two people doing the same thing
