Third party sound bank problem ....

Hi, I got the following problem: I bought a sound bank from a third party company for Massive X. So far I used only 3 sound banks from NI installed through Native Access. The installation pdf. says, I should choose HD, my name, documents, NI, user content. There I find two folders: Massive X and Raum. If I click on Massive X, I find two folders: Noisetables and Presets. I moved the unzipped folder with the new sound bank into The Presets Folder. I closed everything and started my MacBook again. I can not find the bank or the presets in Massive X. I clicked on the menue on the left in Massive X, I scanned the content. Nothing! If I locate the content folder on the left in Massive X, the folder with the sound bank folder pops up. But I can't find the presets in Massive X. Same if I move all the presets from the new sound bank into the user content folder. If I open the content folder on the left in Massive X, I can see all the presets in the folder, but I can't find them in Massive X. If I drag and drop a preset from the new sound bank folder to the interface of Massive X, a window opens and says, that the preset is already imported into the user content folder. But I find no way to choose a preset from my user content folder in Massive X. I scanned several times, closed Massive X and Cubase, re-started my MacBook. NO WAY!!!!


Any advice?


Thanks

    What is the bank? The problem with user banks in Massive X is they don’t have user bank names unless you use a third party app like this https://www.doobox.co.uk/apps/mac/nksf_preset_banker.html

    but it might be one I have already converted

    Hi Kymeia. Thank you for your quick and kind answer! Your answer brought me to the solution. That was the confusing thing for me. I had a similar problem in u-he Hive 2. But there I can search presets by the name of the sound designer and also the additional presets are in the main preset list. In Massive X the third party presets are not in the "main preset list" and also there is no sound bank with the name. Your message brought me to click on these human being symbol beside the star in the Massive X Interface. Confusing for me, that the user content bank is not also on the left like all the other banks. So I found them finally! Thank you for your help!

    The bank is "Thru Zero" by Aiyn Zahev.

    Thanks again, Sascha

    Ok I have that one too, I guess it would still help to have a version with an actual bank name though?

    I paid for it because I thought the dev deserved a reward for doing a service for the NKS community but I believe that Doobox NKS app is free unless you need the added vender editing capability - which you don’t to just edit the bank field - it even lets you add a custom bank image

    Hi. Sorry, new here and maybe a stupid question: And how do I contact that person? Or is it the blue NKS User Library Link and the Buying Me A Coffee link?

    Thanks
