After some searching and putting a few things together, here's how you can break apart .FXB banks into .FXP individual preset files. Then rename them (Since in the process, there's a long tag added to the names of the .fxp).

You can then use your host to organize the .FXP files (i.e. FL Studio, place them in named, categorized folders in the Browser area. Load up Sylenth1, and drag the .FXP file to the gray area around the Sylenth GUI. OR center click on your mouse).

Lastly, If you want to create custom banks yourself using the .fxp, let's say to make "Lead Bank" "Pads bank" "Bass Bank" to organize yourself, I explain this too.

NOTE: The programs used in this guide do NOT require installation nor purchase. You can run them from their .Zip or .Rar folder without unzipping/extracting anything.

Enjoy!


--------------------
To seperate the .FXB into individual preset files (.FXP):

1) Download VSTHost: http://www.hermannseib.com/programs/vsthost.zip

2) Open the program. Click File, New Plugin. Find Sylenth 1.dll

3) Click PlugIn on the top toolbar. Click Load Bank to load a bank you want to seperate.

4) Go back to the PlugIn menu, click "Export Programs", create a folder to export them to.

--------------------

To batch rename (get rid of all that text crap VSTHost named the .FXP):

1) Download Rename Master: http://www.joejoesoft.com/cms/file.php? ... rmv294.zip

2) Open the program, find the folder that has your .FXP files.

3) Click "New Step" on the bottom, on the tab "Scripting", click "Remove Characters"

4) Remove the # of characters you wish, so that you'll end up with just the preset file name. (Tip: The other scripts work great for dealing with large sample libraries as well).

5) Click the arrows by the magnifying glass on the bottom right to instantly rename the .fxp in one click!

-------------------

If you would like to create custom banks to load up in Sylenth 1, instead of using your host to store and organize the individual .FXP...

1) Organize the .FXP files into windows folders, naming them and grouping to your taste.

2) Download Minihost: http://tobybear.phreque.com/files/minihost_164.zip

3) Download a blank init .FXB bank: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=DIIDTSQR

4) Open Minihost, click VST, load Sylenth 1 .dll

5) Click presets, show preset manager.

6) Click load .FXB, load the blank init bank that you downloaded.

7) Click load .FXP. You can select any number of .fxp files (I precategorized them in regular window's folders, as mentioned earlier.)

8) Select all .FXP files to bank, then click Open. Then saved bank as .fxb.

Done :) Enjoy

ok i found a way to do this: http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=277822

Although, I think Sylenth 1's preset manager is a bit dated. For example, Zebra has a great manager, Omnisphere, ect... because they have a dedicated preset page. Categories are much much much more efficient than banks, IMO.

Maybe sylenth 1 can have a dedicated preset page, which is setup something like Zebras? (using window's folders as holders of individual .fxps, rather than using .fxb, much easier to customize organization that way).

thank you for listening :)

I agree, it is a pain if you are looking (for example) just for pads, and you have to load up the different banks and then skim through them to try and find them.

Wusikstation has something like that, and can be sorted by the preset Author or the type.

I tried this out, and it works pretty well!

I made a bank out of all the lead presets that are included (from the 3 different banks) with Sylenth1, and also from the online presets on the website.
So now I have them all in one place, no more hunting around for that "one" lead sound.

I will probably do another, but this time I'll make a Pads bank :)

I always use the preset manager of TobiBear MiniHost for organizing patches:

Oops, looks like the link for Tobybear dosn't work anymore: #http://www.tobybear.de/

There are several download links on other pages anyway.
"Atmospheric Transients" for PPG Wave 3.V
"Analog vs Digital" for Blofeld

Motif ES 7 / Wavestation EX / Blofeld desktop / Pulse 2

Any suggestions? Been looking for a while because I want to do this, then work out how to make my bank default. I'm sick of having to flick through factory presets I don't want or like. Also don't want to keep on opening up windows to search for my individual patches I've created every time I want to change between my presets.

Cheers

Use the Tobybear Minihost program to make your own bank of all your favorite presets, then move (or rename and leave it in it's folder) the Factorybank1.fxb to a different folder.

http://www.tobybear.de/p_minihost.html

When you save your banks of favorite presets, call it Factorybank1.fxb and save in the same folder where the other banks are located for Sylenth1. It will load as the default bank.

Just don't leave the original bank with the same name in there, you might write over it by accident.

If your using the newest beta version that feature has been added. You can "export bank" (.fxp)to save all presets in the bank and you can multiload presets into a bank starting at the selected slot.

Yes, but it's still a bit easier to use the Minihost, unless I am missing a way to do this :?:

Say you have a factory bank loaded, and just want the pads out of it for a brand new bank:
With the new beta, wouldn't you have to save each pad preset out seperately to the computer's drive, then clear out the bank to start with a clean slate, then load them in again, and then save the bank?

With Minimost's bankmaker, you see the bank that is loaded on one side, and a blank bank on the other side.

You double-click on each preset you want to be in the new bank, and it copies over to that new bank, then you can load in a different factory bank (or whichever other bank) and again start selecting each preset you want from that one.
It keeps adding to the new bank on the right side, when you are finished, you save it as a brand new bank with all the presets you picked.

Maybe there is a way to do that with this beta and I haven't figured it out yet. :shrug:

Sure, that sounds even easier. I havent used the bank maker before. Are you able to play the sounds while sorting too. I just wanted to point out that Sylenth had that feature added to those that didnt know. I didnt see it at first and it made my life a lot easier when creating my new bank. I was able to use a work bank as i designed the new sounds, save them all out as individual fxp presets before assembling the final bank. It loads your selected presets at the current position, so you can work within all 4 subbanks and all 512 slots at once. But yes the bank manager sounds like a good tool.

It is nice that Sylenth1 can now do that, I agree.

About your Minihost question, yes, you can play the preset sounds from within Minihost, so you don't have to load up Cubase or Sonar, etc. It has a little midi keyboard built-in it, and it has a way to play the sounds from the computer's keyboard, too. :)
