    User presets in KP2?

    Having never needed to use this before, I just discovered a problem I can't seem to get around: I saved an EQ setting within the Kontakt player 2 (running GPO), but there seems to be no way to recall the nkp file I just saved!?!

    The 'Pre' (for 'preset' I guess) button always says, "save preset. . . " without any other option to load a preset.

    Am I missing anything? Or is this a KP2 bug?
    Oh yeah, I'm on a Mac, OS10.4.11, and this happens as stand alone or as a plug in.

    Where did you save the preset to?

    There isn't a load button, but when KP2 is initialized it looks in specific directories for presets. On Windows these are located within Program Files/Native Instruments/Kontakt Player 2/presets/effects/effectname/

    I believe there is a second set of directories under the Documents and Settings (XP) or Users (Vista) folder, but can't recall it offhand.

    I know you're mac-side, but perhaps this helps?

    Best,

    Make sure you have the correct Installation base path set in Options | Handling. On Windows it is by default C:\Program files\Native Instruments\Kontakt Player 2\ - something similar on Mac I presume. If this path is wrong KP2 won't find your presets.

    Thank, but none of your suggestions seem to work. There is a folder path for saving user patches etc. /Kontakt Player 2/UserPatches/*** .
    There are three folders under what I marked as ***: EQ Settings, Instruments, and Multis. Seems like saving and loading a multi works fine, but no way to load the eq setting I saved.

    Are any of you able to load an eq preset?

    Yes.
    Create subfolder C:\Program files\Native Instruments\Kontakt Player 2\filters\EQ\ when you save a preset. This is KP2's standard EQ folder on Windows. It should be something similar on Mac, I presume. C:\Program files\Native Instruments\Kontakt Player 2\ is the program installation directory.

    Nickie,

    You pointed me in the right direction.

    I created the folder(s) as you said, but I had to then move it into a "presets" folder. Now the saved EQ settings show up!!

    And thanks to Reegs too, I guess! Although I didn't pick up on it at first, you also had the correct info.


    Thanks for your help!

    My bad, sorry. I forgot \presets\

    For others, who have the same problem, the correct path is
    C:\Program files\Native Instruments\Kontakt Player 2\presets\filters\EQ\
