If you have Novum, you should really check out First Light. There are some beautiful patches here

I mean preset browser is what appears by click option, not what always shown at left side of GUI.
(the lest side browser is cool and inspiring but I think not better when preset auditioning)

-preset brower open by click current preset name then slightly faster than click option and mouse over on name of preset pack. changing preset name moves to right click or something?

-its better favorite star shown also on preset browser

-toggle option or something which preset browser keeps showing not close automatically for preset auditioning (this is most important part)

-when later register content pack, the preset folders pad,drone,acoustic etc would be
separate and shown by preset pack? its better all pad presets shown at the same time.

as I wrote before I might miss something better way to use current browser..

Patch management is confusing to say the least. I just installed Simon's First Light bank - tried the advised method of dragging it onto the interface from where I had unzipped it to my samples SSD but that didn't work. However I used the 'Register Content Pack' in the preset menu instead and that added it but for some reason I now have it showing twice as it appears it also copied it onto my main hard drive user location when I wanted to keep NOVUM content on the SSD drive only

There is a function where you can manage the default location for presets/lane sources, so if you point that to the external SDD it shouldn't copy the data onto the main drive.

Thanks - so it looks like if I point it to the SSD I don't need to Register it too - that's what made 2 copies

How do you guys have the paths set up? I have the Basics factory presets in a documents folder, which it reads fine, so I guess the presets themselves have a reference to the lane_sources folder within that directory, since there is nothing in the preferences about that path. Seemns to default the lane sources and presets to my roaming user folder.

Is it possible to create Supersaw sound in this? Is there a trick?

Record your preferred supersaw synth and throw the sample in.
But you will be disappointed. Novum isn’t made to sound boring…
Or in other words: would you take a violin to sound like a trombone?

You could load a sample of a supersaw into it and the take it further, a super-supersaw™
