I always end up making a huge mess when working with VSTs and editing/versioning VST presets in Max. I use [preset], and then [pattr] for writing everything including VST statuses to a JSON file, but I also sometimes recall presets from the vst from Max, which must be saved in their own format. Sometimes I also use Max snapshots that get saved with the patch. In the end, things are scattered all over different ways of saving things.
Would some of you be so kind as to let me know how you organize things and what works for you? I'd like to hear about that before inventing myself a more rigid system for that.
