As original poster you will see at the lower end a hammer like icon. There you should be able to lock it…

If you just need a "free preset player", then please wait until October 17 :wink:

IBTL.

Haven't tried this one yet, but Sphinx 2 looks promising as a free ROMpler with 1806 sounds.

Not free, but buy the Korg Triton VST

It’s got everything from strings, drums, synths, world sounds, fx, etc.

In the meantime, you can get a good amount of free presets by downloading AAS Swatches. How "bread & butter" they are is up to your own perception. (Also make an account and they usually send you a free library around Xmas time.

I agree, Xpand!2 is an excellent ROMpler for the price, especially if you're looking to make stuff with a '90s feel. Plus it comes with quite a selection of drum one-shots.
