1. We're currently conducting systematic tests with the release version of macOS 11 (Big Sur) in order to offer full compatibility of our products as soon as possible. You can find our latest compatibility status - here


    Please note that although announced at the same time as macOS Big Sur, Apple Silicon processors are an independent release with separate compatibility concerns for NI products. Compatibility with macOS Big Sur will not yet ensure compatibility with Apple Silicon processors. At the moment, Native Instruments products are not supported on computers with Apple Silicon processors. Read more - here

    I will add logging for each individual plugin in the next release; right now I have the "problem" that none of my tested VST plugins actually crash, which makes it pretty hard for me to see why the crash handler isn't working :(

    Another short update: I've been working on a new UI over the past week to allow for plugin settings and more, but my health isn't good at the moment, so I'm not sure right now when the next release will come up. However, I'll drop a few status updates in here.

    Yet another short update - the new GUI is slowly coming together. Hopefully it's working soon, so I can concentrate on support for more plugin vendors.

    As you can see, PresetMagician supports any depth of nested preset banks now.

    Another short update:

    The internal refactoring of the application takes longer than expected, but I want to have a clean codebase to work with. Less bugs, better usability. No new vendor integrations so far, but once I finish the refactoring, I can start adding new ones. Will keep you updated, but here's a teaser screenshot :)

    How does the software deal with NKS standards like Macros and Tags? Are they blank as far as those 2 things are concerned?

    Right now tags aren't handled, but they are on my todo list: https://support.presetmagician.com/presetmagician/issues/PUB-3

    What do you mean with "macros"? As far as I know there are no macros inside the NKS file format. Do you maybe mean controller mapping?

    Oh forgot to mention, right now I leave the controller mapping empty, causing Maschine to use the default. But it wold be cool if we could put our own mappings there as well.

    Quite a few plugins have internal macros, thats why i confused the terminology, in those cases if there was a way to make sure those parameters are in the first controller mapping page it would be pretty cool. Usefull for synths like Massive and whatnot.

    Ah :) Well my plan is to allow users to specify a template NKS file from where the mappings are copied, but I think it'll be a while until that's implemented. My current priority is to get 0.0.3 out, but at my current health state I'm not sure if I can get it out this year :(

    Another intermediate update: I finally got all functionality working I wanted for the next release. Now it's time for several bugfixes as well as many vendor integrations.

    I already got all instruments from AudioThing working, now I need to see which ones I can implement. Planned release for 0.0.3 is probably in a few days.

    Great, working better and better. A really big step. Thank you so much. (When converting with a mapping-master is possible, than perfect tool)
