Are others able to work with user patches/presets? In my experience, they work well until reboot. After reboot, the user area does show patches you’ve created but it’s impossible to load them (tried on macOS and iOS). Something purple shows in the background, but the currently-loaded patch stays the same.
At the same time, modified patches do show up in a pedalboard. So a cumbersome workaround would be to save each patch to its own pedalboard.
The patches show up as their own .lv2 folders with a simplified structure (only
<plugin_name>.ttl ). The folder name might be slightly different (for instance,
JX10-<patch_name>.lv2 instead of
mod-mda-JX10.lv2). Adding and deleting these folders does seem to have the expected effect but doesn’t solve (or create) the problem on its own.
Tried with a plain vanilla install, using JX-10. Also tried expanding the filesystem using
The problem first manifested itself for me (and became more prominent) with
TAL-NoiseMaker. Several cool presets with that plugin, with quite a few possible tweaks. Saving those patches to the user area and selecting them can be very helpful, especially while making selections or tweaks. For instance, some of them sound really nice but cause xruns upon loading. Other presets require a few tweaks to work with my setup (say, enabling pitchbend). With a proper set of tweaked patches, that TAL NoiseMaker plugin can really make the pisound into a valuable piece of gear for live use. (And thanks again to @tomerb for leading us to the Zynthian Collection.)
For JX-10 and other plugins, it’s less of an issue for me because fewer patches really suit my needs.
Still, it’s a problem which can likely be fixed easily.
