Really?? I see it the other way around, from a practical point of view... While I donīt deny the usefulness, in many cases, of a global preset list, there are countless situations from a compositional point of view where you need to have dedicated preset lists for one or various specific instruments in a project, lists of presets which will only be used there, i.e. across different sections of the composition. Think about it twice and youīll see itīs not a whim but a potential necessity (and one which I happen to encounter quite often). Iīd rather think about this request as the coexistence of both concepts, not just one...

Subfolders is not a bad idea, I agree, but the NI solution (as found in FM8, Absynth, etc) is for my taste far more elegant since it avoids the potential clutter you can get with a global list

BTW, I rediscovered this thread just because I faced the problem once again and did a quick search for any unnoticed workaround regarding this...
