I might be wrong but I think Charlatan does not "look" for any presets by default. You will have to guide it to presets by loading fxp files or loading a fxb bank through your VST Host in the menu that the VST Host provides.

Agree. It would be great to have a resizable GUI. :tu:

Well, on my monitor it is smaller than I like, and when I get a 4K monitor, it will be tiny :shrug: I do animation so upping the resolution is just going to happen.

If yes and it finds it presets, could you kindly simply tell me where the presets are stored

Charlatan doesn't find presets. It can't. It's not supposed to. It doesn't look for any specific location. Thus, it doesn't matter where you place them. You can place them anywhere on your machine. The easiest pace for me is to put them in the same folder where the .dll is. This is how they are in the Zip file.

Charlatan relies on the Host Program (A DAW or other VST Host) to load presets for it. So the question is: How do you load .fxb and .fxp presets to Plugins inside of VFX? Or for that matter, can you?

I never install presets in the same folder as the .dll's unless forced to by the plugin. I keep a separate folder in Documents for all plugin presets that don't have a location forced by the plugin.

Keeps the clutter down especially when you have hundreds of plugins and makes it easier to backup your patches. Some DAWs scan the plugin folder every time on startup. :wink:

Finally understood. VFX has no ability to load fxb files. There is an extra tool for the windows version, but I doubt it will work within that wine based environment on the Mac. As it is also dead, development wise. There is no way to get it in...
Its not a big deal, then I have to program from stretch, which is good always...;-)
And Charlatan is in the end just another classic synth like the majority of instrument plugs anyway. I'd rather spend my time with VCV or Thorn...

For me, Charlatan only loads the first preset in a bank :?

Get a proper DAW and there will be no problems with loading presets.
Works perfectly in REAPER.

One of the main reasons I still use Phrazor.... I can manage presets so easy

Hello, do you plan to update Charlatan later or is it final version? It is fantastic plugin, but mousewheel support for all knobs and sliders would be great. There is too much mouse clicking and this will be helpful. Also any chance for implementing FM?
Thanks for reply.
