Here on this blog, if you’d like you can download the 25,000 presets here. I made this video in response to all the MAC users out there having trouble installing the Synth1 VST on their system.

I notice that a lot of MAC users across the net have had numerous issues when it comes to the installation of Vst plugins. Some have complained about presets for various VST’s not showing up, and others have complained about compatibility issues.

Those 2 folders will be labeled COMPONENT & VST (as shown below):
