Never happen but…
In other apps (Publishing, Video) they have a facility to AUTOMATICALLY map plug-ins, fonts, etc. when you import an old project where those items are missing OR are no longer supported.
I want to create a list of deprecated plugs/presets which we will be auto-magically swapped when I open an old CPR.
NI’s ‘B4’ should be swapped with Kontakt ‘Vintage Organs’
TC’s ‘ClassicVerb’ should be swapped with Steinberg Revelation
…you get the idea.
So there should be a way to map the deprecated plug -and- its preset with a new plug/preset.
Even if only 80% applicable it would save me HOURS.
The current system just gives you a TXT file, which is ‘helpful’ but in no way eases the pain–which is significant.
The thing I come back to over and over and over is that it feels like the whole paradigm of Cubase is NOW. It’s great for making a new CPR, but if you need to keep coming back to the same content over the years? Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow!!! And what I’ve learned is that people who work in other creative disciplines don’t suffer nearly as much. ie. their apps have a LOT better consideration for the need to work with old content.
