This goes beyond UI settings as well. So for things like Patchwork, MB-7, etc., any built-in or third party plugins will also appear in their slots, and the states of all those plugins will be saved as well.

As an example, I have some external plugins loaded into my user default in Patchwork. I load Protector into the output section, along with Dynamics 4 to act as a noise gate in the input section.

For Axiom, my user default loads my favorite VU meter plugin (VUMT Deluxe) into the input section, so I have a handy reference tool for setting my input level right when I load it up.

You cannot have different user defaults for the plugin vs the app. However if you just want to have a different preset loaded when launching the app, you can either drag and drop the preset onto the app icon or create a shortcut that takes the preset as an argument. Are you on Mac or Windows?

Windows.

So you can create a shortcut to the app and add the path to the preset to load in the command line of the shortcut.
