Great info, thanks. As to the plugin preset save option, I am not clear why, but it looks like I can save some presets but the preset ‘name’ results are rather odd. For example, in my GPP-1 plugin, if I modify the knobs to a particular factory setting and click save - even if I put in a new name and assign a folder with a name - as I click on a ‘saved preset’, the settings become different - yes, like I had adjusted them - but the name of the plugin setting that was there when I made the adjustments, come up along with my changes. Weird I think. In other words, the new name I created doesn’t show up, but the changes do.
(Er, I haven’t tried this with the Steinberg plugins because of my run in with the MultiComp. That got weird, with the plugin sending me to Mediabay on screen along side my preset name. And really, if that menu contained my preset I couldn’t find it. It turned out that my preset was saved in a Steinberg folder stored in My Documents, far removed from my Cubase program folder. And there was no way to point Cubase to it that I could find.)
Is this what Steinberg intended? I actually did a fresh install of Cubase to see if somethng changed, not clear on the results!!
As to your the setting you suggested? That was on the Multicomp set up for mastering, about 2/3 of the way down your description blog on mastering in Cubase.
OK, I’ll deal, but my frustration is that there are presets that I create and I am thinking that it would be great to save them. More frustrating is that the plugins seem to offer a very dignified way to to this and recall them. Hm, not seeming to work here. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong - or if you tell me that you are bulding these modified settings on the fly? - well, that would be helpful.
