For people like myself, that alternative between different platforms (PC and Mac) and Nuendo and Cubase often (cubase until the Nuendo update with Cubase features comes out), I often find myself copying around preferences between different folders and programs.
It’s a PITA and in this day and age should be a lot easier.
So, the suggestion is to have a built in tool linked to the Profiles, that allows you to backup your preferences in the cloud (Dropbox, Google, or even SB’s own cloud?) with multiple versions and selective restore.
So, for example, let’s say I’ve done a new install of Nuendo 8 on the PC, whereas I usually work on Cubase on the Mac.
On the Mac, I’ve backed up all my preferences to the cloud; when I boot up N8 on the PC, the pref restore tool will show me which program I used, on what platform and at what date; I can then selectively restore certain preferences to my current installation.
Sometimes I want to reinstall all preferences; sometimes just key commands, or program settings, or (wahay) my color set.
I would also like to suggest something that unifies all settings; right now preferences pertain mainly to program settings; but what about VST presets, or the studio setup including port names, generic remote settings and preferences for Eucon or the CC121?
I would love to be able to back them all up with one click and restore them to a new installation, or my current one.
