I think the Profile Manager is not used as much as it could be. So for those who have questions about it, I started this topic.
Profiles allow you to save customized program settings and preferences. You can switch between profiles, and import and export your profiles for use on different computers.
Profiles are helpful if you work on different computers if you use different settings for different kinds of projects, or in a studio environment where several users work on the same computer. Profiles are saved as files with file name extension .srf.
Profiles include the following:
- Toolbar settings for all windows
- Global workspaces
- Track control settings
- Track control presets
- Presets for input and output busses
- File format presets
- Plug-in collections
- Quantize presets
- Crossfade presets
- Key commands
The following is not included in profiles: Settings in the Studio Setup dialog and in the Audio Connections window, presets on the Control Room tab of the Audio Connections window, track presets, plug-in presets, and project templates.
It’s upon Exporting a profile that the file containing it is created, which should then be imported into the daw.
