    Maybe at some time in the future - I haven't had a look at the Kontakt format so I don't know how much effort it is to reverse engineer the format :(

    please repair: Omnisphere 2.6.2c dosen't find presets, don't map knobs with importet preset (knobs are mapped but dosen't work in Maschine), Loom2 can't generate previews and sugar bytes obscurium find only 128 presets with many the same names. I wating and waiting for fixes especially for omnisphere and obscurium. I am a paid user and very grateful for your work. God bless you :D

    Please create bug reports or support request (one for each problem) so I have access to the plugin logs and can organize the problems

    I did all the nks presets for Trash 2 manually as it seems tricky for Felicia to implement this feature... Still working on the mapping though as it is huge. If you want I can forward you the nks file. No mapping yet (except the default one that is very messy) but all factory presets are in it

    I haven't had a look at Trash 2 or the iZotope plugins so far, I remember that they're using a VST shell which I haven't gotten around to implement so far (same for Waves Plugins). The VST Shell stuff is quite complicated from a developer's point of view :(

    I understood that very well which is why I moved on on this. Perfectly understandable, still it would have been really awesome but it took me only an evening to make all presets manually. I didn't complete the whole controls mapping yet. There is so many but when labeling Control pages in a certain manner, it makes it so easy to navigate using the pages navigation. Very very handy this is just incredible when you get used to it. Page nav should even be a dedicated button IMHO

    I don't think they do use a VST shell, they all install as independent plugins

    I don't Have Drop box or the like but feel fre to share ot your way it doesn't mater to me.
    In the Zipped file, you'll find 2 folders : Izotope + Izotope,inc which are the custom image folders to have the custom image for Trash 2 on your Maschine controller screen and Broswer (image for Trash 2 vst dosen't work in on the browser because because of the special character in izotope,inc. but works ok on controller)
    On Mac the path is ⁨Users⁩ ▸ ⁨Shared⁩ ▸ ⁨NI Resources⁩ / for Windows, IDK

    Then you have a Presets Zip file containing all stock presets (35 or so) from Trash 2 AU plugin exported 1 by 1 so you have a few files to copy in Documents/Nativeinstruments/Maschine2/plugins just drop them here

    Then there is a Convolution.zip file with 195 presets of all the stock convolutions presets as i like to use Trash 2 just for convolutions or amp simulations sometimes . drop them in the same folder

    Once it s done you can start Maschine and enjoy

    The reason why there is AU and VST version is because I did this for myself on the fly without paying attention for consistency and sharing with Windows user . Since I figured this out, I only use VST for this purpose but I didn't want to go Through the whole process again, I am sure you understand why, still, Windows users can use the Convolution presets without issues.

    As said earlier if anyone want to share this on Drop box or maybe Kymeia as I know they did a lot of work for many synths and there is a dedicated thread for NKS user library there => https://www.native-instruments.com/forum/threads/nks-user-library.262959/

    I am still working on the control mapping as it is really nice to work with as I could start to enjoy but takes a lot of time and I don't have much.

    Peace !

    I'd be happy to add it to the user fx section of the user library if you want - thanks, I have Trash too, does it include the addons? - let me know when you have a mapping

    Cool.If you think it has a place in there please do.
    I think it does includes add-ons as I have Edge and Classic Textures if this is what you talk about.
    Surely the whole thing is a bit messy , will try to make something clean and finished when I find the time. Still I do use this on a daily basis and it is nice. Also did the same for Camelphat 3 if anyone is interrested
