Insert preset management behaviour

When creating and saving a new preset for a plug-in insert, the name of the preset is not recalled when loaded from mediabay.
The name that is recalled is the name of whichever preset was loaded before making the changes and saving the new preset.
Also, saved presets do not appear in the drop down list for the plugin.
Is there any way around this or just a bug/feature?


Sorry, I can’t reproduce it, could you be more specific in the step-by-step reproduction, please? I tried this:

  • Add an Insert effect: Compressor:
  • Load a preset: Backing Vocals 1.
  • Change the settings.
  • Click to the cube in the plug-in window header and select Save preset.
  • Type the new name: Backing Vocals 1 - adapted.
  • Add another Insert effect: Compressor.
  • Click to the cube in the plug-in window header and select Load preset.
  • Select Backing Vocals 1 - adapted and double-click on it to apply it.
    => Preset is loaded.
    => The name in the Preset field is Backing Vocals 1 - adapted (as expected).

What do you do different, please?

That is the exact method I use.
It only works with Steinberg’s built in plugins, not with any third party plugins that I have tried.

Here’s a video I made to demonstrate.
