All presets are tagged and have modwheel and XY modulations.

We recommend using these with the latest version of U-He Zebra 2. You will be able to use them in ZebraHZ but you might get an annoying message every time you load a preset.

After buying Nightmare you will get a .zip file. Uncompress it, and copy the folder with presets to your Zebra user preset folder.

These are the default folder locations for Zebra presets:

  • macOS: /Users/USERNAME/Library/Audio/Presets/u-he/
  • Windows: C:/VstPlugins/Zebra/Zebra.data/Presets/

Alternatively, you can right click on your user preset folder right inside Zebra to open it in Finder or File Explorer.


You can use these Zebra presets on any project, commercial or not. You cannot resell these presets or use them to create samples for resale either.
