Yeah but that's normally :lol:

Seriously, I didn't get asked to sign a NDA or even keep it quiet and personally I think it will do a lot of good if folk see that good stuff is coming. I guess the worst that could happen is that someone might delay buying a licence until the next release.

Yes, it's certainly meant for the best, and I don't doubt that. But alpha versions are not set in stone. Functionality that's in now can be removed for any reason tomorrow. It wouldn't be very good to talk about a feature that might not be in the final beta. Imagine Maik faces unrecoverable issues with the ordering feature and decides to remove it to prevent crashes. We should make this a topic for the guys in charge.

It would be great to understand how the preset manager formats the .txt files into 2 columns, so that it can save/load multiple arrays.

For example, if you have a SM Multi Stage Envelope, you can begin to format a string and save one of the arrays - but how do you number each parameter in the first column?
- Because this would have to be done repeatedly for the MSEG. Ideally all of the parameters would also be preserved, just as it is in the preset manager.
They would have to be loaded and appropriated internally without opening multiple dialogs.
I've also tried to reverse engineer the preset manager directly, in several ways to see if I could make one specifically for the MSEG because saving and loading MSEGs like Serum's LFOs would be absolutely amazing. :D

The tutorial is now updated to v 1.2 and is in the first post.
So you don't have to read it again this is what I added:

FAQ: But I have 100+ parameters so how can I go through them all checking for the odd duplication?

The easiest way I’ve found is to copy the text into Word or any word processor that supports alphabetic sorting. Select all the text in Word and click the sort button, choosing Paragraph. It will then be much easier to see duplicate lines. If you have large numeric array values you can just page through these since the sorting will put them at the start of the sorted document.

Hello friends. I installed FS 3.0.9 B2 and wanted to find the order parameter and FXP / FXB in the preset manager, but I did not find any mention of it. Is there an order of parameters and FXP / FXB in the beta version?
