Not shure but for Nexus2 it might be you don't have the same expensions that I have?
Also not shure why it doesn't work for Dune2. Maby try putting them in the same folder that I have?
C:\Users\your_username\Documents\Pro Tools\Plug-In Settings\

Does the Xpand2! presets work?

Yes Xpand2 worked fine...once I remembered where to find the fricking folder!!

I put your Dune 2 patches in the same folder I have all my other ones in. I can see your folder, but no patches show up! It’s weird. You may be right about the Nexus ones, though I have several of their expansions. But Nexus won’t even read your folder. Don’t know why not.

Hi, does anyone still have the 250 Xpand!2 patches from the AIR User Blog, as well as the Structure patches? Hunted them down in the past but had little success. Tried contacting Russ on his instagram but unfortunately had no response. Almost all the people I've contacted said they no longer own them, or own very few patches. Hopefully these are not lost to time.

FYI a friendly warning...
Lost these, and when found again probably five years ago now, they downloaded ok along with a virus which then directed any
browsing to some weird URL trying to ransom the computer. No matter where the browser was pointed the same site came up.

The patches had been hung out as bait, which I snapped up, my mistake. First and only time (so far) a virus made it in.
Once I finally discovered Malwarebytes it purged the persistent redirect action.

So if you do find them be sure it's offered by a reputable host.

Thanks for posting!

Found the 20 @ Xpand!2 Preset Folders (30 Arp to 49 XiliVocoder) today!
Feels like the right thing to do is to send them to their inventor: DUC Moderator Crizdee/Chris,
so I sent Chris an email today. No reply so far.
You know it’ll be safe if you get these Presets via a new download link from Chris (the other links in this 2009 Thread no longer work)

Good to know patches turned up along with the creator ID. Still use the Xpand!2 patches here.
Xpand!2 has a good blend of programmability/adjustability and ease of use for writers, albeit shallow for full on sampler-VI-synth-heads.

There was an earlier post on this thread speculating that a copyright issue may have caused their earlier removal.
Don't know 'bout that, but Avid should buy 'em and include them as an Xpand!2 bonus download to refresh the VI... As if.

Woops – I managed to really stuff this up big time!
Please accept my sincere apologies for getting this so totally wrong!

Moderator crizdee/Chris very kindly replied and told me that the inventor of these Xpand!2 patches is actually Moderator chrisdee/Christian!

I’ve just sent Christian a PM – will report back with more news (if and when!)

Hi,

I wonder if maby there are the patches I made a long time ago.
Unfortunately I don't have the excact same patches any longer my self. I keep updating along the way.

It's pretty easy to make your own as all the sounds are found in the parts list in Xpand2!.
I do however have an updated set of xpand2! patches wich Im happy to share if anyobody wants them.
Just let me know here.

When it comes to Structure I uninstalled it many years ago as ive gone over to tx16wx sampler wich suits me much better. Unfortunately I can't find the Structure patches any longer.

If anybody finds them you are free to use them as you wish. Im just happy to share.

I've got a few of the Structure sounds downloaded from the Air User Blog, but would love to get the lot. I just picked sounds off as I needed them, but should have collected the whole list at the time.
