I have GPO set up with two separate DLLs. I did this, before I discovered the TenCrazy SustainFix plug-in, so I could use both sustain & legato modes in a single project. Unfortunately, I have old projects that still use the two separate VSTi DLLs. I have used the two interchangeably, since I have to re-set the sustain setting in Kontakt for each session anyway, and because I forget which DLL I originally created for which mode. [I know...this was dumb; but I didn't catch myself soon enough.] For this reason, I have need to transfer presets between the two VSTi DLLs.
In Sonar, I can save VSTi presets (using the VSTi Save command - NOT the DXi wrapper Save command). However, if I load a VSTi preset in GPO it crashes Sonar. [My other wrapped VSTi soft-synths can load VSTi presets just fine. But GPO crashes almost immediately.] DXi presets work fine for Save and Load. However, DXi presets are unique to a specific DXi (or wrapped VSTi, as in this case). So I can't use my DXi wrapper presets from one GPO VSTi DLL in the other.
I've already worked through this with both Cakewalk and Garritan; but nobody can find a reason for the crashes, or a real solution. My temporary workaround it so load a VSTi preset, then IMMEDIATELY save it as as DXi preset - before Sonar crashes. This allows me to transfer presets using the VSTi preset files (*.fxp); but the procedure is a bit tedious.
Is there any way to transfer DXi presets from plug-in to plug-in? I've tried Cakewalk's Plug-in Manager which allows preset Import/Export; but even that won't allow transfers between two different plug-ins. [I guess it's just a backup or PC to PC transfer tool for identical plug-ins.] Or, has anybody else had and solved the crash issues with loading VSTi presets in GPO using Sonar?
