The panel features a number of pages:
Data Preferences: settings related to BFD3's content locations and various startup loading options
Grooves Preferences: settings related to the Groove engine
Session Preferences: settings which are loaded and saved with Presets and host/DAW sessions when running the BFD3 plugin
MIDI Preferences: settings related to MIDI input
Engine Preferences: settings related to BFD3's core engine, modelling and streaming functions
GUI Preferences: settings related to BFD3's graphical user interface
Health Preferences: settings which are designed for troubleshooting purposes when you require support - please ignore this page unless instructed to use it by our technical support team
The Preferences panel features a Profile system which loads/saves settings for all settings in the Engine Preferences page with the exception of the Simulation settings.
These profiles allow you to define different profiles for different situations - for example, low quality/detail level settings for composition work, and high-detail settings for mixdowns and exports.
Click the Load/Save button to display the Load Preference Profile... and Save Preference Profile... functions - use the latter function to save the current settings as a profile. Use the former function to load a profile from any location on disk, or use the main drop-down menu to choose from the available profiles currently in the database.
