Working with templates/devices and sounds is impossible at this moment

I watched the videos and read the articles and the manual, but I just cannot get this working.

An arrangement with several Kontakt sounds works, but now I'm trying to create presets for some of my most important VST librarties (emotional Chello, Berlin Woodwinds, Cinematic strings and Metropolis) but after a while everything starts to breack down.

I tried to create a device and save the description as a template and then save the device as a preset. This worked for several devices, but then all of the sudden they started to overwite each others descriptions and everything went crazy from then.

I also noticed several crashes (that fortunately where cought and I was able to proceed) during the creation of the descrition. Not sure what is causing them, as I onyl did past text in the name field.

Currently I assume that one or more bugs are hindering this to work.

What I'm targeting at is to create presets for all my VST libraries that I can easily reload.

Any ideas what I can do? The tutorial is also a bit old compared to the software.

Actually you don't need to save individual devices as templates. If you have a working rack module and want to re-use it at any time, just save a preset of that rack module and everything else is taken care of by Synfire.

Thanks Andre, that is what I understood from manual or videos too, but my experience did not enforce that knowledge. Sometimes it works, but sometimes I load that rack back and it has a different sound loaded. No idea why. Now that you confirmed that it should work like that , I have to assume that it is not my lack of knowlege, but a bug. Time to visit the bug part of the forum and try to document what I experience. Will not be easy, as I still have not found a way to reproduce this 100%.

I found that I can delete unneeded presets from outside of Synfinre in the file explorer. To rename a preset, I need to resave it with new name and delete the old entry. This enables a kind of preset management.
Still was not able to reproduce the problem.

I was able to reproduce a begaviour that probably explains my problems: http://users.cognitone.com/de/topic/loading-preset-sometimes-loads-first...

Hope you will be able to debug this and then reproduce it. Please tell me if I can help. I have vacation today, so could help.
