As I created many amSynth presets for standalone usage, I needed to convert them to a different standard as I wanted to use them within the LV2 plugin version of amSynth. I converted the first presets by hand, which was a painstaking experience. As I had many more to go, I wondered whether I could automate this process. With trail and error I created a script. It uses a template, copies it and replaces the values from the given preset.
