Oh, don't get me wrong, you can save/load presets inside the guitarix 
preset window (no d'n'd' needed), d'n'd is used for communicate with the 
"outside world", so to share presets.
And, if you won't use d'n'd' at all, you can as well go the route over 
the usual copy and paste files with mc.

Fons, I would love if you once use guitarix and get your own impression 
of our work. Still, it isn't just a guitar rack, it is a tube amp 
emulation in the first place, that's right, but you can disable that. 
What leaves then, is a effect rack which focused on live usage. Ultra 
fast preset switching, without glitches or klicks, midi learn, numpad or 
keyboard to control the effects, support for headless use, web interface 
support (Android, IPad, . . .), support for run the interface (multiple 
instances) on different machines (strictly different processes) , 
bluetooth,   avahi,  support for ladspa and lv2 plugs, straight mono-> 
stereo order, . . .
