I've been busy working on a handful of new librarians for some popular free soft synths. After I started a prototype for Dexed Librarian a while ago, I realised that I need a better engine to handle the vast preset libraries.

So far I've developed individual Librarians for the following:
  • Charlatan
  • Crystal
  • Dexed
  • Firebird
  • FreeAlpha
  • OB-Xd v2
  • PG-8X
  • Superwave P8
  • Synth1 (using the new Librarian engine)
  • TAL BassLine
  • TAL NoiseMaker
Here's an example of "OB-Xd Librarian", to give you an idea of what they look like:

I'm looking for some beta testers for these (Windows only -sorry Mac and Linux users). If you're interested in helping, please reply to this thread. I can only deal with a tiny number of testers to start with.

I'm working on my own, so my time is pretty stretched. I won't be able to reply to DMs, so don't be upset if I don't reply quickly.

I love you Synth1 Librarian regardless it has some minor problem in HiDPI environment.

How I should understand the OP? Are you working on librarian supporting all vsi all together?
If so I have one note: please make sure all needed data for selected vsti nd preset are stored in DAW. It happened already to me (with other librarian) that after operating system reinstall it has lost all information about instrument and its preset chosen in DAW's track. Obviously the db was stored in local files while the librarian was referencing its identifier.
Saying that I have to confirm your Synth1 Librarian is bullet proof in this regard.

Keep good work!
