Hello Steinberg…and anyone else who knows…
Every once in a while it seems the way to solve problems in Cubase is “trash the preferences.” (user settings data folder) You have been suggesting this for years, and usually…it makes things work again
But the problem with trashing preferences is that the user looses all their key commands, preferences, and many other important things unless the user saves them first in another folder or desktop before trashing. For me, trashing preferences eventually will happen. It’s not a matter of if…it’s a matter of when.
I have 3 pages of listings of where Cubase stores things on my computer. Unfortunately there are certain things that can’t be restored once the preferences are “trashed.” I have learned the hard way…for example if anyone names their midi port set-ups and then trashes the preferences, you have to re-name them. The names for midi port set-ups can NOT be saved, and you have even confirmed this.
So today, I’m wondering if the remote control editors can be saved? Before I right-click on a VST and choose “remote control editor” then spend hours assigning stuff to VSTI’s I want to know if these settings are saved, and where they are saved? The bottom line for me is if this stuff can’t be saved, it makes my controller less valuable and Cubase less professional application.
The same goes for Mackie Control. Under Device set up >Remote Devices>Mackie Control, I have entered a lot of user commands that take a lot of valuable time to re-enter just because I trashed my preferences and now this stuff is gone. I have now written them down so the next time my preferences are trashed, it will be easier…but the easiest way would be if these settings are or could be saved?
In summary, if the remote control editor, and mackie controller can be saved I would be ecstatic! Maybe I just don’t know the location so I can copy and paste the files temporarily to my desktop before trashing preferences. On the other hand, if these things can’t be saved, would it be asking too much for a solution instead of focusing on the next version of Loop Mash, or trying to make Vari-Audio compete with Melodyne?
