I am using different VST and while some are more straightforward than others; I am not sure if there is an easy way to add presets in Studio one, when such VST are used in a track.

For example, U-He VST synths does not show any preset in the VST window in Studio One; nor I can cycle through presets with the next and previous presets. The only way to change preset is to use the mouse and click on the preset arrows on the interface.

I tried to add presets, in Studio One, and it works; although it is a totally manual operation, that has to be done for every preset. This is not feasible as you can imagine, for tens of thousands of presets.
Is there a way to add multiple presets in a VST? I own both Akai VIP and NI Komplete Kontrol, which have similar issues with plugins, because they require mapping. At this point I would rather create the mapping in S1 instead, but the only way I see is to add each preset one by one, by hand, which takes forever.

Since I see that a preset can be saved and exported in the interface, I assume other owners of VST did make mappings files for their presets and shared them?

Not sure if the question is too simple, too hard or if it is not clear enough.

I can add single presets by hand, takes forever. Is there a better way or should I just do it one by one, until I give up and move on? I don't mind sharing the mapping I will create; but from the look of it, nobody really has use for such thing.

Yeah, most VSTs tend to manage their own factory presets and do not list them in the "main" S1 preset list. A notable exception is Steinberg's Padshop Pro where they do seem to manage to add them to the main list so it can be done.

I've never tried but I wonder if you can copy the preset folder for a VST into the equivalent S1 location?

It's mostly not something that bothers me. I tend to dial up a preset, tweak it a bit then save it "locally" with the song title in the preset name.

I would like to know how to do this as well.

V-Station doesn't have a way to select presets in a menu. It only lets me click the up or down arrow a hundred times to get to presets.

It would be nice if i could somehow get the presets to all show in studio one and select them through that interface.

Plugin preset file formats vary depending on the DAW and depending on the plugin developer. This is why that are stored with different extensions and often stored in different folders/locations.

Unfortunately, you cannot either (i) simply move one "brand" of plugin preset file from one location to another or (ii) simply change the extension of the preset file and expect them to work.

Thanks; so this means that for every VST I have to save by hand the ones I want to keep. This will take forever, considering I own both Arturia Analog lab 4 and Komplete 12.

I thought that presets could be read through the VST itself and added to S1; some other application does use that approach; although in cases like for Kontakt, where the preset for an instrument is not exposed, because each instrument is a preset, and the instrument preset is considered as patch, there is no way to do that.

Amazing how VST is a standard, but expose parameters and presets is something that each VST does differently :)

There is no real reason to save them all. Just save any that you use in a song. I like to tag them with the song name but it's not necessary.

Yes, I can save only the ones I am planning to use, but I would like to have all of them available from my midi keyboard; when I am exploring the sounds to find what I like.

I find strange to undestand how come nobody ever created a profile for the most known VST out there; unless you use mostly your mouse when parsing presets.
