Ok i just tested FL Studio latest - demo - after several years of my absence from FL Studio. Wow a lot of things changed.

Few question. I can load VST3 plugin. From wrapper i can load VST3 preset correctly. Preset is loaded.

But how do i save preset in the same vst3 standard format. I can only save it in FL Native format. I can't find VST3 preset saving. I guess since it can load VST3 preset it can save it as well. It's just that i can't find it right?


I loaded FL Studio as VSTi. Loading correctly in Ableton but when i delete FL Studio VSTi i am having access violation error jumping out of FL Studio. After i press OK it does quit ok though. And i can load another one.

I'm not sure, as I've never used VST3 plugins in FL Studio, but for VST2 plugins you can save .fxp presets when you click on the cogwheel (second symbol on the top left of the Wrapper window) to bring up the Wrapper settings. There is an option to save/load presets. Maybe it works this way with .vst3 presets for VST3 plugins? Have you tried that already?

Hi matte. Thanks for jumping in. Yes i already tried that. Like i mentioned i've been long year user before.

I see same window as on your screenshot when i load vst 3 plugin. Presets area where you see Load...,Save...,Save all... i see only Load... button. Save... and Save all.. buttons are missing. which is why i am confused.

Maybe it's demo limitation? Can anyone confirm?

No demo limitation, seems to be not possible with VST3. Just tried to load a few plugs in Producer Edition and indeed there is just the option to load presets.

Yeah, I tried it as well now with a VST3 plugin (FabFilterOne), and there doesn't seem to be a way to save VST3 presets, indeed.

Oh that's a bummer (for me) because i use few different DAW applications and use vst3 preset as a sharing standard between projets. Saving as native FLStudio preset is not an option for me so this actually kills my workflow. Thanks for help guys.

If anyone know some kind of crazy solution just let me know and i might take a look at it..But then if i recall my gripe with FL Studio was exactly that. I had to do all kind of crazy solutions to make my hardware gear work and be in sync and that's because i abandoned it back then. I tried it again but it seems to me that while countless amazing features are in - developers are still doing that. Adding half working options(such as ability to load vst3 preset but not to save it).

I played with FL Studio more these days and really i am amazed how FL Studio improved over years in software workflow department. Too bad they don't care for people with VST3 preset management. It isn't something you would expect.

Anyway thanks again
