Ok - after much trials and frustration I think I figured out the VERY convoluted system Steinberg uses for patch organization. So in order to only “bass patches” in a synth for example, I first click on the preset list. Then I have to click on the small window icons on the bottom left part of the preset list, and then I have to select the “filters” tab to activate it - then select “bass” from the category list. However, it seems that I cannot load patches from this view, so I then have to click BACK on the windows tab - AGAIN click on the filters button to turn it off, and now, FINALLY I can view just the “bass” presets.
WOW!! What a hassle!! Am I doing something wrong? Is it possible to somehow combine the two different windows (preset selections and filters) into one window - or at the very least let me have both open at once!! Am I missing something? In my opinion you should be able to select the attributes you want, and then in the same window load the resulting patches.
I must be missing something, and appreciate any advice you are willing to share.
