I hadn’t had a need to fire up Halion 3 since migration to a new PC awhile back (been writing). But I just got the Halion4 upgrade and wanted to check that H3 saw all of my existing presets, especially those H3 had previously converted from my S-750 sampler data. Since H4 doesn’t have the conversion function, I needed to make sure they were OK before upgrading.
I was quite surprised when H3 had zero presets available - not the original content, not my S-750 conversions or any other presets. I have a separate disk for all my sample libraries and the H3 original data is there too. So I rescanned that disk (a couple of times now) and still nothing shows up. I’ve watched it scan the pertinent folders. If I try to browse for presets from within H3 it is empty. When I navigate to those folders using media bay it has located the underlying wav sample files. But the fxp preset files do not show up, even though they really are in the folders.
Summarizing. The fxp files exist, MB is scanning the folders those files are located in, MB is not detecting those files. Musician is annoyed.
