Would you be interested in a Mac version of SDSE? (only vote if you are a Mac user)

Yes, a Mac version is a must for me
I would but I already use the Windows version on my Mac or notebook
No, free solutions like Boot Camp or VirtualBox are enough, keep the focus on supporting VSTs

Hi, it can happen if SDSE couldn't find the path to Metal Foundry or access its files. It's possible that some entries are missing in Windows, in that case running the Metal Foundry installer or removing/adding it in the SD3 settings should make it work. I'll send you a mail with details to fix this.

Make sure to install the latest version of SDSE in case you currently have an old version or if the kit you're exporting from Metal Foundry is built from pieces loaded from other SDX packs.

I have to say the same thing: you are brilliant and a very kind person.

It has been 7 years. 7 years ago I created my SD-card with BFD2 samples. Added 2 kits from 2Box. And the rest were the 2Box factory kits. I never needed anything else, happy to choose from about 10 kits I really like.

I upgraded the OS twice, even bought BFD3 but never came to it.

Now, semi retired, I installed BDF2/3, Reaper, SDSE on my new PC. You are so kind helping me out with some pointers. I mean, 7 years is a long time.

Today, it all came together and I exported my first new kit. I was impressed by all the scripts kicked off and the work SDSE does to create the samples.   In the next days I will do some test rendering like you suggested and built my new card.

Thank you again!

You're most welcome Murgen! You were one of the very first to use SDSE, I'm very glad if it can be useful to you today. Thanks for the feedback :)
