I’m a total Cubase newb. I bought Cubase 6 the other day, installed it and updated to 6.5. I was hoping I would be set to go once installation was complete…Theres so much that is missing and not working its driving me mental. As I said, I am totally new to Cubase and I just can’t get my head around it. (I am running Mac OS X 10.7.3, 2 x 2.4 Quad Core, 12GB)
When I create an instrument track with HaLionOne (which I installed off the CD under additional content) none of the presets show up. I’ve heard all these presets come in Sonic SE but i would prefer to use the HaLionOne interface. I have searched the knowledge base and found solutions to this for users that have previous versions of Cubase (unfortunately I do not fall under this category). Are the presets the .hsb files that are located on the install CD under “Additional Content/HaLionOne”? If so, where do i copy them to?
In Cubase under the “VST Instruments” section, it shows I have:
Groove Agent ONE
HaLion Sonic SE
Am I under a false impression that Cubase 6 is supposed to include Monologue and Embracer. If not, why haven’t they installed?
- Also, Padshop and Retrologue are missing all presets. I’ll list below the number of presets that are shown for each instrument to check that its the correct default amount…
HaLion Sonic SE - 957
Mystic - 158
Groove Agent ONE - 66
LoopMash - 83
Prologue - 334
Spector - 204
The strange thing is if I go “Add Track > Using Track Preset”, Monologue shows up under the “Plugin Name” filter displaying 57 presets and Embracer does also, displaying 160 presets.
It would be very helpful to know where the presets are saved for the instruments and the difference between file types such as .vstsound etc. Apologies for my incompetence but I would love to get Cubase working properly and to its potential! I know its a long list but I would be VERY grateful if someone would be willing to help me sort this out and get my head around it. I am willing to offer a small payment (via Paypal) to someone who can guide me through the correct solutions.
Thanks in advance,
