I'm using the plugin-alliance VST3, but most of them do not show the available presets..An example of the available preset in bitwig

This is an overview of available presets in C:\Users\user name\Documents\VST3 Presets\Plugin Alliance

More than 95% is not available in bitwig 3.0


The answer to the question in the title is "yes". All my vst3 plugins (and some of yours) still show up. So really the question should be "Issues with vst3 plugins from plugin-alliance?" But I cant really answer that - sorry. I only have a couple of bx plugins, which both are showing up. Are all your plugins in the same folder? Have you clicked the "show plugin errors" button in the bitwig settings plugins page? That may provide some clues.

Ah! My bad... Rereading your question I see you are asking about vst3 presets. I think I got distracted by the plugin-alliance example. Anyway, I agree with you that vst3 presets seem to need some attention.

Hi Phuitema! just to be clear, u wanna access presets which come with a third party vst plugin inside Bitwig's browser?!

Stranger things: when I add the preset directory as "sounds" the bitwig browser shows the presets. This work-a-round works but I prefer the logic solution where is show al the presets from the VSTI windows.

A guess this could need some attention from the developers, I consider presets an important part of my workflow.

bws 3.0 win 7 64 -- Free plugin named LITH as vst3-only shows and works. A saved Preset is saved and works fine.

Still this whole VST3 preset remains a little mystery. I'm using the shadows hill industry. compressor and create a glue compressor setting. I'm able to save this as a preset, but how do I quickly navigate to the VST preset directory of the plugin?

When I load a preset it's able to show all preset from the plugin directory, using save send me to the project directory.

You can download all fxp files from Plugin Alliance site and put them in the Sound Content Location path. That is what worked for me.
