Let's say you like certain device presets a lot, but you need to tweak certain parameters to get the desired result. To save you valuable time, you can save your own presets.

  1. Once you've modified a preset to your liking, simply click the Save Preset button (floppy disk icon) in the top right of the device or device rack. This adds the preset to the device presets in the Device Browser of the Live Library.
  2. Type in a name for it and hit Return to save.

Or if you want to save presets into your chosen location and not the Library, e.g. the current Live Project or in dedicated folder, you can do the following:

  1. Open File Browser 1, 2 or 3 and navigate to the desired location.
  2. Now simply click the title bar of the device, drag and drop it into the respective Browser location.
  3. Type in a name and hit Return.

This works for all Live devices, be it instruments, audio or MIDI effects or any type of rack.
