    This is my first post; the community seems great! I'm having an issue with missing presets in Superior Drummer 3.0.3 on Windows. With a cracked copy, it has the basic kits, but is missing all presets when the Core Library "Superior Drummer 3" is loaded. That is, when it is supposed to look like attached screenshot (1), it instead looks like attached screenshot (2). This is essentially our community's workaround to the problem described here on ToonTrack's website, without being able to use their official download manager to solve the problem. The preset files don't seem to be included in the torrented version (unless I'm installing it wrong).

    When "Drum Kits >" is expanded, the options there are correct and loading those works. However, even the basic Core Library presets (such as "Clean Kits") are missing. This is similar to an issue Sizzle mentioned here, however I think it deserves a different thread because in this case, not only the artist-specific presets are missing, all of them are!

    Does anyone have the preset files they could upload? I believe they're stored (by default) in:

    C:\Users\<username>\Documents\ToonTrack

    Just placing these (likely small) text files in the right location will solve the problem.

    Thank you so much for your help.

    Alternatively, has anyone found a torrent that enables them to install with the listed presets?

    There is of course the chance I'm missing something obvious!

    I remember having the same issue as you when first installing SD3, but I honestly don't remember how I solved it and I don't have the original installation files.
    The folder that you mention is totally empty, yet the presets are there.
    I can only see I have visited a thread I'd searched back then in Toontrack forums where someone from their support mentioned to install "Sound Library Update & Presets" from "Part 1". Is there any file like this?
    Also make sure SD3's core library gets loaded by default (in SD3's preferences --> Libraries), maybe try removing the library and re-adding it (the SL-SuperiorDrummer3 folder).

    edit: Also search the sister site for the Library Update, this is probably what I did that fixed it.

    Rule Reminder: links to warez are not allowed. Any one who can send the files or link to files should do it using PM.

    That's odd - the version I got from mediatorrentz a while ago had the presets already. I now have a genuine version of SD3 so I can have a look later for the presets.

    That's what I'd do first. Nothing to lose.

    This is what fixed it. The link to the Library Update (most recent version available on sister site) is here. Thank you all.

    The folder I highlighted is apparently the folder for user-created presets, not the Library in-built presets.

    I've marked Slayerman's post as Best Answer, assuming people will find my link to the sister site above.

    You are right but, Only one thing Xupito if you quote a comment with a link to warez, you reproduce the link to ....

    I had to clear links to warez in both comments.

    Sorry all. I saw his warning (and actually clicked "Agree" on it) but thought I was posting a link to the sister site not Warez; I still am not sure what "Warez" is actually. I will keep a closer watch on things now and read about it.

    Apologies again.

    edit: Jesus. After a quick Google of the term "warez", I see where I erred.

    Install Library Update. It's the way you can make SD3 shows presets.

    Warez is each and every thing cracked, including sister sister, that's why it is stated in the rules that the only link to warez site that could be posted are the one to posts presenting freeware in sister site.
