I’m having an issue understanding the preset management for plugins in Cubase. For example, I’m running a UAD reverb and wanted to just quickly browse through the presets. I start with the preset window above the plugin (default) and use the arrows to go through presets. However, I noticed that not all the presets available are in this list - its actually missing presets that I can load through UA’s own preset loading system. Why is this / how do I fix it?
So now I try to use UA’s own preset system but its a PITA as I have to click on their folder and manually choose a preset making it impossible to quickly go through their presets. I then tried clicking on the cube and choosing “load preset” and it was empty! So again, I selected the cube next to the preset name and choose “convert program list to VST presets” but again this did not make all the presets available in this view either.
To add to the mystery, I created my own preset and saved it by choosing the cube next to the preset name and selecting “save preset” - and when I go looking for it in the preset list its not there! It only shows up if I select the cube again and choose “load preset.” Why are there two ways to view presets - one in the preset list, and one hidden in this cube? And why do they seem to not be relating to each other?
So I’m confused. How do I get cubase to recognize all the presets for plugins, not just a seemingly random amount? How do I get my personal presets I save to show up in this list? This seems to be true with most, if not all of my third party plugins and instruments I’m using - only a handful of presets are showing up in the list while the actual plugins contain far more presets than what is shown.
