I am a little confused on how to load presets that I have purchased and found.
On a mac, what is the path and file type required to have them available in Aalto.
I have seen .mlpreset, .aupreset and also learned of a converter to change presets to AU format.
A little clarity here would be appreciated.
thanks so much!
The .mlpreset cross-platform format is the most recent one. Hopefully anyone selling presets is providing them in this format. This has been the case since, I want to say, 2012 or so?
For a while I was supporting the .aupreset format on Mac OS but to make the overall code more simple and robust I'm no longer doing that.
Aalto presets on Mac OS live in the folder ~/Music/Madrona Labs/Aalto. Likewise for other plugins. On Windows they are in C:/AppData/Roaming/Madrona Labs/Aalto. To install presets, just put the .mlpreset files into these folders and they will be scanned every time you open the main preset menu. There's no need to restart Aalto.
Thanks so much. The path you specified was a new one for me.
