Previous/Next Preset on first run



  • Since we can't define a "default preset" I save my project with the preset I want to be there when the instrument is loaded. This is a tolerable solution although it doesn't indicate which preset is selected in the preset browser which is a little confusing.

    The problem I have though is after I load my plugin if I hit the next or previous preset buttons it will load the first preset from the first bank, even though this is not the next/previous preset. @Christoph-Hart is there a workaround?

    In my version of hexeract the fwd / bck arrows go to the 1 st bank/ 2nd Category when pressed so there must be a way



  • @Tod-Slaughter Ah that's interesting. In the particular project I've noticed the issue I'm using a 2 column preset browser, so no categories.

    Weird that it goes to 2nd category though



  • The it jumps back to category 1 before going to category 3 . I assume that's a bug



  • So funny, I was working on this issue and... "I might have a look at the forum if someone has a solution..." 😄 😄



  • My problem is a wee bit different though
    When I click the first time on prev/next, the init preset loads instead of another one (because I saved the project with the init preset)
    so in order to load the next/prev at the first time I have to click twice, then it's for good...

    I guess I can find a workaround by doubling the next/prev function the first time you click...

    I haven't gone beyond "init" yet. Does the Back / Forward function auto select the next preset/ next bank automatically or...? I guess I'm asking the same thing as David



  • @Tod-Slaughter No, for what I understood, it's somewhat different, but related, still...
    next/prev goes to each preset in the order they appear in the browser, by categories first, then by presets inside each category:
    Category1 => all the presets,
    Category2 => all the presets,
    and so on...



  • yep thats what it does

    @d-healey - what I do to get around this loading the last preset but not really showing it is:

    on load set the preset-display-name = "---"

    so the user gets the last thing they did, and if they hit fwd/back it starts at the beginning (it'd be nice if it didnt do that tho..so count me as voted-in)
