Let me know if you guys find this useful. Next step will be to port it to VL!

Compared to preset-recorder it is quite heavy. But this seems due to all the convenience features like morph, osc and naming. Maybe it would be a good idea to modularize it a bit. Anyway a good example of extending the preset idea.

Thanks for the feedback @tgd. And thanks for pointing out preset-recorder!
This is the result of an utility that i developed for myself and that i thought would be useful for the community. Feedback and new ideas are always welcome to develop it further.

Hello Joao.
Can I use a few in one project?

Hi, I can't get this to work. I'm using the helppatch and it won't save or overwrite any xml files. Loading works fine. Can anybody confirm? Using beta 38
EDIT: It does work, but not properly for me unfortunately. When loading IOboxes start exchanging values, e.g. not entering the nodes they should. For example instead of a directory path in a filetexture iobox I get my UDP-port...
