I am having some trouble getting a layer preset browser to work as I would like.
I want to similarly emulate the Sample Preset browser that Skylab has, however I want the browser to change the layer/zones presets with my pre-mapped samples.
I know there are templates that are supposed to allow you to do this (Preset Browser Custom, Preset Browser Module, Preset Browser) however I can’t seem to get them to work the same. I’m pretty certain that I want to use the “Preset Browser Custom”, so that’s what I’ve stuck with. Following the guidelines here: https://developer.steinberg.help/display/HMP/Preset+Browser+Custom , I’m not sure if I’m getting the Section or Scope correct. I’m certain I’ve got the other parameters correct.
The “section”, I’m not sure exactly what to put. I’ve tried a few different things. I feel I’ll probably need a script. So I’ve looked into the script that was posted to this forum to help find the Path to the VST3 Presets (https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=268&t=114073). I’ve changed the preset names to the ones applicable to my case and I’ve tried a few variations of the path including those suggested in the linked topic. The only issue with this, is that I haven’t exported the program as a library yet with these layer presets included. So I don’t have 1 single VST Sound file to point to. For each of my layer presets are custom, so they don’t have a vstsound file as far as I know but only sample content that they point to.
In summary, I think my first issue is:
If I haven’t made a library with layer presets yet, how do I include layer presets in the Preset Browser that don’t have a vstsound file?
I’m just not sure what I’m doing wrong. Any help will be greatly appreciated and if I need to clarify anything, I’ll be glad to do so.
