    Yeah it’s just a template - I did make and release NKS versions of my 3 Aalto banks but never got round to the factory patches and afaik no one else has either


    I guess that’s because when I open Aalto it just invites you to do sound design so I never really explored the factory presets - just made loads of my own patches

    I received an answer from reFX support … Unfortunately there is no NKS support for many Nexus 3 banks … As my method is quite time consuming, I wouldn't find the time to do all the missing presets and previews myself … But is there anyone out here that has already done all Nexus 3 presets? And if not, could anyone (maybe @JesterMgee or @s_aizawa) imagine to do all the missing presets?

    I would pay for it …

    Ha, yeah that about sums up developers approact to NKS... They are only interested to add it if it benefits their sales which is fair enough, can't expect developers to invest a heap of time and effort just for users benefit I guess. Makes things a bit of a mess tho. I developed NKS for Nexus 2 then found out they would be adding NKS support for N3.

    I actually helped them do that and also tested and wrote up the whole manual for N3 but when NKS was released I was a little disappointed in it as it missed even some controls I had for Nexus 2 and the tagging was even more basic than I had managed to automatically tag (and was working through deeper hand tagging).

    I asked about better tagging and possible improvements to the NKS files and was told tagging wouldn't be improved as it was a manual job and they just didn't have the time or interest in it. I ended up deleting the official NKS support and went back to my own NKS files in the end as they ended up better (IMO)

    It's not possible to add additional NKS for Nexus 3 because for some reason, the save option is greyed out (was not for N2 and no idea why this is now not possible):

    It's really annoying TBH because if developers are not going to maintain or do things correctly they shouldn't bother at all in the first place. Seems it was only added in the most basic sense so they could be featured on the NI partners list for more exposure.

    In any case, I am not able to add NKS support for any more expansions and not really able to invest in new expansions, I don't use 95% of the ones I have at the moment.

    Thank you for the info!

    I would be very happy if someone could also create the previews for these great banks some day! That would be even more accessible! Thank you so much!

    Hi all, sorry if I missed it elsewhere, but are there plans by anyone to make NKS Libraries for the new Windows-friendly version of GForce's OB-E 8-Voice softsynth? Thanks!

    Yeah it's done, hold on - this board is not very user friendly - My post is stacked for hours.

    I give them some more time to do whatever they think they need to look or agree for for my posting regarding your request. Really annoying. I don't get a post that's waiting for approval but I assume it's like this. Every time when I press "comment, nothing happens - It just still there as a draft.

    It's so odd Xavier. I got your post in my email notifications as I'm watching this board and noticed that it wasn't actually here. Suuper odd. Thanks sooo much for doing this though!! Synth sounds fantastic!!!!!!

    It's so crazy, now I pressed post again and it appeared immediately but additionally on the bottom them comment remained as a draft too, for further uploading. - Crazy forum software.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    @Sunborn: You were right and wrong - Yes it was already there but short after I managed to post it I recognized an error in the text an wanted to correct it, then the post disappeared again and I wasn't able to reload it until now (I was blocked by the system). It's really crazy - Sorry for that. Hope it remains now and I leave it untounched befor it'll disappear again. As well this comment, I posted it afterwards but the system decided then to add it to my posting - I assume as long as a certain time is not over or another one is posting any further comment is getting attached - Not very nice for better overview - I give up. Main thing is hopefully now, that posting and especiall link is out for the packed material, hope this download source is stable and reliable enough, I just started a free membership for having some free space there.

    Have fun guys. And sorry for this confusing stuff - It was really not on me.
