To use PresetMagician, you need a trial or full license. You can get a trial license here. If you ordered a full license, you need to generate a full license in your account. Paste the system code to the form and download the license file, then select it within PresetMagician.
Click the "Configure VST folders" button. Add all your VST folders you wish to use and add a NI User Content directory if you are using a non-standard location.
PresetMagician needs to import presets from your plugins. To start this process, click the "Import VST Presets" button. This might take a few minutes, depending on the amount of VST plugins you have and how quickly they load.
After analyzing plugins has been completed, review the plugin list. You'll see if the plugin is supported by PresetMagician, how many presets are detected, the type of the plugin and remarks.
PresetMagician needs to know which presets you like to export. For first-time users, I recommend that you only use one plugin. Click the "Add Presets to Export List" button and select if you like to add presets from all plugins or the selected plugin only.
You can view the preset export list either by clicking or selecting the "Preset Export List" tab. All presets scheduled for export should be displayed:
You can export NKS presets with or without audio previews. Without audio previews, PresetMagician can easily export 100s of presets per second. Audio Previews take some time, usually up to one or two seconds per preset. For a first test, you should not enable Audio Previews. To run the export, click the export presets button:
Open Maschine or Komplete Kontrol. Open the preferences, navigate to "Library", select the user library list, and click the "Rescan" button.
After the scan is complete, activate the "User Library" view:
Now all exported presets should appear. On Maschine or Komplete Kontrol hardware, also make sure you selected the user library.
