Cubase 11: Steinberg MIDI insert presets missing


Cubase 11 - ALL my midi insert effects, such as Arpache SX, Auto LFO, Transformer are showing no presets in the drop down list. I have not amended my config knowingly.

Indeed looking in C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 11\Presets I see all the contents I expect (and matching what is still in C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 10.5\Presets)

So in C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 11\Presets\Arpache 5 I see


But the preset menu in Arpache doesn’t show these at all.

Thanks in advance for how to re-point Cubase to look at these.

I’m not sure at all why they are not showing for you - they work fine for me.

However there seems to be another folder where those presets are stored:

C:\Users\{your windows user id}\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase 11_64\Presets\Arpache 5

I wonder, if maybe Cubase grabs them from there?

Thanks Nico5,

The %AppData% folder you mention had a few files and folders in it, but most things were missing.

So to fix, I copied the contents of

C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 11\Presets\


C:\Users{my windows user id}\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase 11_64\Presets\

I chose to skip rather than overwrite files that were already there.

Hey presto, all my presets are back. Your answer worked for me, thanks again.
