FabFilter Twin 2 Help
The included factory presets give a great overview of what you can do with FabFilter Twin 2. You can either use the presets as they are, or tweak them further to create your own unique sounds.
The preset button shows the name of the current preset. If you have changed the preset by adjusting one or more parameters, the name is dimmed to indicate that this is not the original preset anymore.
Loading a presets can also be done via MIDI, using Bank Select and Program Change messages. Click Options > Enable MIDI Program Changes in the preset menu to enable or disable this feature. When enabled, the corresponding bank/program numbers are shown in front of the preset name (for example: (2/65) My Preset). This means that you can load that preset by first sending a Bank Select message to select bank 2 and then sending a Program Change message to select program 65.
Important: All the presets in your preset folder are numbered automatically, starting with bank 0 and program 0. This way, you are able to access any of the presets via MIDI. However, this also means that when you add new presets to the menu, bank/program numbers of other presets might change. Be aware of this when recording program changes in a session!
All presets created with Twin 1 can be loaded in Twin 2. If Twin 1 is also installed on your computer, your Twin 1 presets will be accessible via the V1 Preset Folder submenu in the preset menu. The factory presets for Twin 1 are also included in the Twin 2 factory presets, so you only need to use the V1 Preset Folder submenu to access presets you might have created yourself.
You can read more about compatibility between Twin 1 and Twin 2 in Upgrading to Twin 2. Please take some time to read it if you are planning to replace Twin 1 instances with Twin 2 instances in your songs.
