… I have downloaded a set of Brock’s mod presets (tide filles). From the title I can not tell which mod directory to place them in. I do not know how to import the files in the normal way.
The directory structure is pretty straightforward (assuming this is the “Yeah, But The Modulation Effects …” 50-preset list). The algorithms 1-10 are in the order they appear on the ModFactor itelf, or in the manual):
… and then, that same pattern repeats for 11-20, 21-30, 31-40, and 41-50.
The problem remains that you even have to go through all this in the first place. I mean – I’ve hacked around in the directories – it’s possible, for example, to renumber your presets and lists, and I believe delete. But that’s doing things the hard way, and it’s easy enough to make a ‘fatal’ mistake.
These are *.H9z files, that you should be able to drag & drop over the (open) H9 Control app. Same file extension for individual presets, or preset list collections. But the *H9z file gets extracted to *.tide files? The Eventide staff knows best, but I believe I recall reading here that *H9z was a renamed / proprietary *.zip file. Makes sense. I’ll try to recreate your process on my own systems, and see if I can duplicate your issue.
