Loopy Pro: AUv3 Presets

Loopy Pro has the ability to save and recall AUv3 presets. You can use widgets and MIDI Bindings to recall and scroll through an AUv3/s presets. The presets accessible to Loopy Pro can be seen in the preset list that pops up when you tap on the folder icon at the top of the AUv3 window. You can also save the current settings as a new preset. Not all Audio Units share their preset information with the host. The rest of this article explains what to do when an audio unit does not make its preset list available to the host.

Any presets you can see in Loopy's preset popup menu will be available to its preset actions. Tap on the folder icon at the top of the AUv3 to see the presets Loopy can see.

Some AUv3 have proprietary preset-saving methods and do not make their internal presets visible to the host app or make only a subset of their presets visible.

If Loopy Pro's preset menu does not show the same presets for the AUv3 as the AUv3 shows internally, the AUv3 is not making its presets visible to the host and you will need to add them manually. Loopy's preset actions apply to the presets visible in its preset menu.

To add a preset to Loopy's preset list:

  • choose the preset in the AUv3,
  • tap on the folder icon in the AUv3 title bar,
  • tap New to add the preset to Loopy Pro's preset list.
