Channel Tools - saving / deleting presets?


Recommended Posts

Hi there,
The Channel Tools plugin - the one in the attached picture,
has got me a bit confused about saving and deleting presets in the drop-down preset menu.
Apparently it's possible, because I have one from long past in there, but I can't figure out how to Save a preset into the menu
and also be able to delete a preset from that menu.

Any thought would be appreciated. Possibly the location of those saved presets might be the way?

Channels tools relies on the CbB preset manager in the VST standard header.

It is documented here http://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=Mixing.28.html

CbB preset manager stores plug-in presets in the registry.

In addition to managing presets through the VST standard header, the Cakewalk plug-in manager has a manage button next to the import and export buttons.

Thanks scook,

Does it matter that I'm using the plugin with Sonar Platinum - (pre new piano roll) ?

When I click the Save button a new window opens wanting me to save it to my PC.
I can't find a way to save into the preset menu.

Yea, that save to PC option is  under the VST2 drop down menu. I was using that because clicking the Save Icon doesn't work correctly.

An other thing, - when hitting save when a non-factory preset is loaded, it only gives me the option to over write the existing,
seemingly no way to rename it.
Must be something odd with my install.

I did test saving and reloading a file on my PC and that works so I'll just make a folder to hold my prests.

Thanks ... let's call he work around the SOLVED.

The VST2/3 drop down to the right of "C" reads and writes standard VST2/3 presets and banks from disk.

To name or rename a preset works the same in the CbB preset mananger:

  • type the name in "A"
  • click the save button "C"

Rename has the extra steps of reloading the old preset and deleting it with button "D."
