Discarding settings C13

Hi everyone
just updated to Cubase 13…and I also notice some spikes on the CPU meter (nothing changes by changing the buffersize of the sound card, and nothing changes by setting ASIO guard to High-Medium-Low).

Some people recommend discarding the settings that Cubase “takes” from previous versions and “starting” from scratch.
At this point I would like to try… how should I proceed?

Hi , i did this for exactly this reason , are you Mac or Pc ?

I’m on PC Windows 10


You have to rename (or remove) all Cubase preferences folders. Quit Cubase. rename/remove the preferences folders. Start CUbase 13. You get the factory settings.

Cubase Preferences folders are:
Mac: ~/Library/Preferences/Cubase X
Win: %appData% Steinberg/Cubase X_64

Thank you!!!
