I use ObXD but at least it has actual presets that show up and work.

FXB's work just fine here in FL Studio 20.1.2 so just follow the instructions shown above and you'll be good to go. :tu:

EDIT: However I notice that in FL Studio and Reaper that while the banks will load just fine some of the presets are not loading correctly. I think it might be due to some of the presets being programmed on older versions of Charlatan.

For example my patches "Square Pad (Tek)" and Filter Rise (Tek) do not sound anything close to what they're supposed to sound like.

I don't think this is a Host issue but rather an issue with Charlatan itself most likely due to the version issue.

Do you suggest I reinstall Charlatan?

I don't suppose it would hurt to reinstall the latest version of Charlatan. Just keep track of where the Presets folder gets installed so you can point FL Studio to that location when loading banks.

But I don't think reinstalling will help with some presets not loading as they should.

GUYS, and fellas, I HAVE FIXED MY OWN PROBLEM. I had been using the x86 instead of the x64 and the FXBs work! Thanks
