Importing UAD1 Presets into Sonar 5.0.1 PE issues


New Member
Ok, here's my system:

AMD Athlon 64 3500+
MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum ATX Socket 939 Motherboard
2 Gig DDR2 Corsair Memory
M-Audio Audiophile 192 PCI Sound Card
WinXP Pro
Sonar 5.0.1 Producer Edition

Seems to be playing nice with the UAD-1 I installed last night. HOWEVER, I can't seem to figure out how to import the Presets from UA into Sonar. Anyone here using a similar setup? I've tried to use Sonar to do the import, but it only allows the importing of *.spp files, while the UAD-1 preset files are all *.fxb files.

Help? I'm certain I'm missing something, but I've scoured every online resource I can think of to no avail.

you can't import the pre-set files into Sonar. Rather, when you add a UAD-1 plugin into a Sonar project, you apply the preset to the UAD-1 plugin instance by using the dropdown menu and then clicking on the folder that has the UAD-1 presets.
