How to save a VST plugin with its parameters "configured" into live device?


I'd like to enable all parameters of a VST (Reaktor) in its Live device with the configure button and then, save it. If I press the floppy symbol I can save an .fxb (VST Bank) format document, which then recalls my VST, but without the configured parameters. Since the parameter configuration is in an arbitrary order I would really need a specific VST to have its parameters in always the same order.

Presently the only way to save it all is along with the Live set. I really hope there is a better solution.

    I think you can drag the Live device for hosting the VST into a folder in the browser, and then recall it that way.

    Apparently VST's don't have that option but AU's do. you can even go as far as to  have the system presets (if they are included and compatible...which is hardly ever) appear under the AU in a file tree format, like a regular live device.  

    I didn't really read through the section in the manual, becayse it was just way too much work for something I just don't feel like dealing with anymore.   it's a rather convoluted process, however, involving resaving, which I didn't feel like dealing with anyway.

    Long in short, though VST banks appear in the device windows and AU's don' cannot save the patches.  Ableton's had a lot of time to work on the next update.  I grow weary.

    I have tried to save as VST Program (.fxp), which is the other option. Same result, no result.
