I have a few questions that might also interest other CB users.
Is there a way to find out in what Cubase version a project ‘once’ was made, without having to first open the project? I ask this because in the past decade I made hundreds of CB projects (CB versions 6-10) that do not show in which CB version they were made. I should have named the version # in the project names itself, but I didn’t. Instead I named them in the format recordingdate-title-artist. But such a project may have been made during a period where I switched from one CB version to a newer one. Opening such a project now, always means a surprise if all VST’s, FX and virtual instruments that were used in the project will load when I open such a project. Sometimes certain effects were not (yet) available in the days I made that project, but that stays unknown until the project is opened. For instance the presence (or absence) of ‘Reverb-A’ and ‘Reverb-B’ plugs are good examples of that. If I open a project in a certain CB version, I often get a warning that the plugin is missing (unless I by luck open the project in the right CB version). But more in general: Were the FX, virtual instruments and VST’s that I used at the time of making of the project, even already available?
That leads to my next question:
Is there an overview available anywhere that lists all the available original Cubase FX, VST’s and Virtual Instruments per CB version? So far, I couldn’t find it anywhere…
It would be a HUGE help if any ‘tool’ or otherwise would be available to simply check the used CB version!
Greetings from a otherwise very happy Cubase user!
