How to Install ElectraX Presets on Windows & Mac

ElectraX is a versatile and powerful synthesizer plugin used by musicians and producers for creating a wide range of music sounds. One of the most attractive features of ElectraX is its ability to load and use presets, which are pre-designed sound settings created by sound designers or fellow musicians. In this article, we’ll walk you through the steps to download and install ElectraX presets on both Windows and Mac systems.

Step 1: Extract the Preset Files

Presets usually come in compressed file formats like ZIP or RAR. Before you can use them in ElectraX, you’ll need to extract the files using a suitable extraction tool:

For Windows: You can use built-in Windows tools or a third-party app like 7-Zip.
For Mac: You can use the built-in Archive Utility, or a third-party app like The Unarchiver.
Right-click on the downloaded file and select the appropriate option to extract the files to a folder on your computer.

Step 2: Locate the ElectraX Preset Folder

Next, you’ll need to find the folder where ElectraX looks for presets. The location varies depending on your operating system:

For Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steinberg\VstPlugins\ElectraX_sounds\

Start in your C:\ Directory in File Explorer and select Program Files (x86). This may vary depending on your installation and version of ElectraX. 

Open up the Steinberg folder.

Select VSTPlugins

Finally choose the ElectraX_sounds folder, and open it up.


For Mac: Macintosh HD > Library > Audio > Plug-Ins > ElectraX_sounds

Start in your Finder in the Home tab. You can go here by going to the top menu bar, selecting “Go” and clicking Home.

Once you’re in the Home section, find the Library Folder.

In the Library folder, find the Audio folder.

From there, find the Plug-Ins folder.

In the Plug-Ins folder you will find the ElectraX_sounds folder where you can install your preset folder. Simply drag and drop the folder containing your presets after unzipping them.

If you can’t find the ElectraX_sounds folder, launch your DAW, open ElectraX, and click on the “File” button in the plugin window. Then, select “Show folder in Explorer/Finder” to reveal the correct folder location.

Step 3: Install the Presets

To install the presets, simply copy the extracted preset files (usually in .fxp format) and paste them into the ElectraX_sounds folder mentioned in Step 3. You can also organize presets into subfolders for easier navigation.

Step 4: Load the Presets in ElectraX

Finally, open your DAW and launch ElectraX. Click on the “File” button and then “Load preset” or “Load soundbank,” depending on the file format you downloaded. Browse to the ElectraX_sounds folder, and you should see the newly installed presets available for use.

Downloading and installing ElectraX presets is a simple process that can greatly expand your sound library and inspire your creativity. With a vast selection of presets available online, you’ll never run out of fresh sounds to explore and use in your music productions.

This is how you install ElectraX presets on both Windows and Mac computers. If you’re looking for ElectraX presets to download after learning how to do see, check out the Desire ElectraX Preset Bank here on PresetSupply!
