I'm also really confused by the preset browser interface and saving kits and patterns etc.
It just doesn't flow well or make much sense to me....
Love the synth and features, but interface could use a lot of work IMO
Thanks, I received confirmation that Xils got your message.
One Window Preset Manager : It's a very integrated window. I can perfectly understand people would have to spend a little time (and rtfm) to be perfectly confortable with it. Once you'll be though, it will really speed up everything and make your life easy.
There are TWO MODES : CURRENT PRESET and BROWSER MODE
SAVE/SAVE AS presets
(Patterns, Drumkits, Drumpads, Global) : You MUST be in CURRENT PRESET mode
(i.e not in BROWSER MODE). Then just fill the NAME, and other fields (Bank, Author, Genre, BPM, Drum Category, Drum Subcategory -Snare/Claps, or create new tags on the fly)
Finally just click on SAVE or SAVE AS button.(and please note that factory presets can't be overwritten, so if you started with an Init patch or any other factory patch, only SAVE AS will be available)
The BROWSER MODE
: Is used to load/tag/retag/export/import/delete presets or multiselection of presets/banks/projects etc
If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to post here. I've also included a lot of practical examples in the manual for Preset Manager usual functions (based on 'how to do this or that' form) and I think it might be worth to read it at least once. All in all, I think StiX Preset Manager might be the most powerfull one ever created, but it's true : due to it's power, it needs an -hopefully short- learning curve.
