    All envelopes are INIT instead of Gate, ADSR etc. Where is storage folder of this presets on Windows x64 or x86. How to fix it? Anyone can send me factory preset file?
    Cheers :)

    @Roject Are you looking for the Effects presets folder? Those are located in C: Program Filesx86\Native Instruments\FM6\Sounds\FM8Factory\Effects. If you want those I can send them to you. If you want the whole enchilada I can do that, too.

    Unfortunately. Not envelopes there. I don't have idea where FM8 storage this presets?! I used Iobit uninstaller then handly searching and I think, I deleted everything from PC and from registry. Reinstall and problem is still here. Rebuild database not helps :/ I still have only the same 3 ones maded from scratch, everything else are INIT. Why? I deleted everything. These three ones should be deleted. Where those little worms are stored?

    They could be embedded in the app. Reinstall the whole freaking thing. What is keping you from doing so? Do you have a name for one of those presets?

    Yes. I delete everything and start fresh install and this not helps. Those presets names are ADSR, Gate, Loop and I don't have them physicall (file in the folder). They only exist on this list. How to recover factory presets under Envelope presets list?

    @Roject Ypu are not going to find ANY file for the envelope presets in the FM 8. The HAVE to be emeddedwithing the program itself. They are not even found in the C:\Program Filesx86\Common Files\Native instruments\Shared content\Sounds\FM8\Effects. Take a preset's name. Try to find it . You can't. Reason? I already told you. Embedded within the program. New ones get saved as some propietary encrypted file. By the way, the names for presets are Sine Loops, Decay loops, Blib loops, etc. You caan'tedit thoses. once you saved them you cant delete them. you can delete the nodes. What is it that you are trying to do? Why not just reinstall?

    I found it! I overlooked one folder. This little worm is in the:
    C:\Users\(Current User Name)\AppData\Local\Native Instruments\FM8\Macros

    This is weird because all macros are in the:
    C:\Program Files\Native Instruments\FM8\Macros

    And only changed ones in the:
    C:\Users\(Current User Name)\AppData\Local\Native Instruments\FM8\Macros

    So if You re-save envelope presets file and You would back to the original one You must copy factory EnvMacros.fm8 file from
    C:\Program Files\Native Instruments\FM8\Macros
    and paste into
    C:\Users\(Current User Name)\AppData\Local\Native Instruments\FM8\Macros

    Or delete everything from folder:
    C:\Users\(Current User Name)\AppData\Local\Native Instruments\FM8\Macros
    Should works too.
    This is solution for second problem too. Before envelope presets are only in standalone app. Now they are in VST too.

    Bro Im glad you found it but this reminds me of your AKAI thread.It is like a monologue with you talking to yourself. I asked you like 3 times what was it exactly that you were trying to achieve? I still don't know what is it you were trying to do. Recover custom presets? Recover original presets? :dunno: BTW, Native Instruments has files all over the freaking place. i did open those macros but with the setting I had on my notepad ++ I was getting no matches. Now I see them with microfuck'sNotepad. unfucking believable.

    Sorry, it happens probably because my english isn't good. I understand everything but I can't give out exactly what i mean and i think everything is clear but it's not. I will work on it. Thanks

    Don't worry about your English. It is good. Mine is not perfect. That is the result of us espeakingmore than one language. Nevertheless, i'm glad you found those files. BTW, do you know where those new Envelope presets get saved at? I can't find them.

    If you change something in Envelopes and save. New file is created in:
    C:\Users\(Current User Name)\AppData\Local\Native Instruments\FM8\Macros

    For example if You unpack, copy and paste file "EnvMacros.fm8" from this post
    into:
    C:\Users\(Current User Name)\AppData\Local\Native Instruments\FM8\Macros

    You should have 3 presets (ADSR, Gate, Loop) and rest INIT. If You would back to factory presets just delete this file from:
    C:\Users\(Current User Name)\AppData\Local\Native Instruments\FM8\Macros

    Similar with other Macro presets like FM Matrix etc.
