(it's a complement to the PA file that MimoJP will be uploading)

The Cakewalk Plug-in Manager documentation covers how to manage its preset files.

These files use the spp extension.

The documentation is installed with the software. 

It is in chm format.

The help button in the bottom right on the Cakewalk Plug-in Manager UI opens this documentation.

Interesting. Only a few plugins here actually enable Export from the PIM. Most do not.

Unless a user actually saves presets using the Cakewalk Preset Manager a plug-in will not have anything to export.

All but one Sonitus do report presets, but I never saved them myself.

For most others, the Export AND Manage buttons are grayed out. The only way I can save presets is one-at-a-time from the plugin itself.

Not an issue for me as I have no problem using presets from within the plugin.

Can't say for sure but the Sonitus presets may have been written into the registry by one or more of the Cakewalk installers.

This is normal.

FWIW, I did a quick test yesterday and on my older Win 10 PC that had older versions of SONAR installed, I have the Export and Manage buttons enabled for some of the plug-ins.  However, my current Win 10 PC didn't have the older versions of the plug-ins installed.  The Export and Manage buttons are greyed out (until I Import an *.SPP files].   

I just assumed this was normal.

This "BT" (Nomad Factory) stuff works different than the Sonitus plug-ins, since it's VST and not DX.
However, since it was mentioned, here's a file containing the presets for:

BlueVerb DRV-2080
BT Analog Chorus CH2S-3
BT Analog Phaser APH2S-3
BT Analog TrackBox
BT BrickWall BW2S-3
BT Compressor CP2S-3
BT Compressor FA770-3
BT DeEsser DS2S-3
BT Equalizer BQ2S-3
BT Equalizer BX2S-3
BT Equalizer GEQ12-3
BT Equalizer PEQ2B-3
BT Equalizer PEQ322-3
BT Equalizer PEQ5B-3
BT ExpanderGate GX622-3
BT Limiter LM2S-3
BT Oilcan Echo TLE2S-3
BT Stereo Imager ST2S-3
BT Tempo Delay DL3D-3
BT ValveDriver ADR2S-3

 

Cheers!
