Sound Reloads

Factory Soundset | Former Banks | Receptorized Banks | New Reloads

Newest addition: Matrix Revelation! | Download |

Although the included internal library of OP-X PRO-II already offers more than 1500 ready to play sounds we regularly extend the library with new interesting sounds and post them here for free download if we think they are worth to.

There are several ways to import them into the library:

- copy them manually to the library
- import them using your vst host's preset file menu
- import them using the patch browser

We think the best and fastest method is copying them manually to the library, which is located in the "OP-X PRO-II" folder next to the dll. To keep things clean and separated we recommend to create subfolders, like e.g. "Userpresets" and "Userbanks" and put the files there. Of course you are free to set up any custom structure you like with any number of subfolders. You only have to know that the default root folder is always the "OP-X PRO-II" folder.

Structure example:

Then put additional banks into these folders, on demand using further subfolders to structure them. It's all up to you.

Mac VFX Edition users: Read page 2 of the "Installation Guide Mac" pdf which is included in the installer package to learn how to access the library. Help video here.

Note that if the plugin resides somewhere within the system's program files folder and you are no administrator windows will put some warnings which can be ignored. Also be aware that patches and banks saved using the patch browser could be written to virtual store except to the original library. This does not affect working, but you should know where windows puts them in case you want to make a backup of them. Read more about it here.

The easiest way to allow writing to the library folder without running your host in admin mode is to change the rights of the library folder which is described here.  

OP-X PRO-II Factory Soundset

This is the complete factory soundset which is installed automatically by default by the installer, but here isolated from the installer. This could be useful if you e.g. by mistake have overwritten one of the factory banks and want to restore it without installing the synth once more. In that case you simply could replace the dedicated bank with the original bank from this package.

Former OP-X PRO library

This package contains all former OP-X PRO banks in the original form. They are exactly the same as the ones delivered with the standard OP-X PRO, except that the second part has been cleaned/filled with empty patches since the old format only offered 64 patches per bank while OP-X PRO-II has 128. In the old banks there's sometimes some data junk in this second part, that's why we've cleaned it in all banks.

This package can be useful if you want to use all original banks furthermore in unchanged format, e.g. if you're familiar with them from your work with OP-X PRO. The collection furthermore also contains the factory soundsets of OP-X, OP-X PRO and OP-X PLAYER, so if you used to work with one of these you immediatly can turn OP-X PRO-II into one of these by loading the dedicated bank. The library also contains every single sound in the same library structure of all OP series synths (OP-X FREE, OP-X PLAYER, OP-X, OP-X PRO). It's 59 banks in total, but some offering only a few patches. The package also contains all additional banks ever posted in the user area.There's an info file that briefly describes all banks. These are the factory banks:

OP-X PLAYER/FREE: opxpro_opxplayer.fxb
OP-X: opxpro_opxfactory20.fxb
OP-X PRO: opxpro_factory.fxb

Note that the new OP-X PRO-II library in fact contains almost all of these original sounds somewhere, but sometimes improved, cleaned, with some effects added, and in an all new bank structure. Only the weakest ones were kicked out. For the new OP-X PRO-II library we went through the coplete old library, re-sorted the presets, improved, and of course added hundreds of new sounds, resulting in a completely new library with a clean new structure. But if you want to have everything unchanged in original state additionally, here it is.

download

To make things easy we recommend to put the whole "Probanks" folder to the library, which keeps the banks cleanly separated in their own dedicated folder. So simply put/copy it into the "OP-X PRO-II" folder:

 

Receptorized Banks

For Muse Research Receptor users and people who want to have all sounds available as single presets. These packages contain all presets of all banks extracted as single presets collected in dedicated folders.

If you not only want to be able to access all the banks from the synth's patch browser but also from the Receptor's front panel and file system then you need to have the banks in receptorized format. Apart from the factory banks we've now added too all reload banks and have collected them on a dedicated page. You can download the banks here:

download

Installation: Unpack the zip files and put the included folder(s) to the "Drop Installers Here" folder in Receptor, go to the SETUP Page and Click INSTALL. Now you will have the installed bank(s) you normally have to access from the synth's patch browser too available in the Receptor's file system, which e.g. makes possible to access them directly from the front panel or also from the Muse Machine banks browser.
