    hey guys,
    just a small question about the Installers for the microtonic/synplant patches that are available on the download site.
    would it be possible to add a option for setting a different install folder?
    just came to my mind that when installing the patches some of theese presets (maybe) overwrite patches/presets
    with the same name in the install directory that have been edited by the user ... just an idea :P

    On PC or Mac? On Mac I believe this is very difficult (if not impossible) with the package installers.

    Overwriting presets in the factory preset folder without renaming them is a very bad idea. :)

    If you rename them, they should never be removed by any installer or uninstaller. If they are, that is a bug on our part.

    yeah that´s right hehe....my primary intention for this "feature request" was indeed just to have a option to select the install folder. maybe it´s just me but i have all my synplant/microtonic patches on another partition/hard disk,

    but fortunately the whole thing is one of the problems that i can easily work around :lol:
