Please try to reset the HALion Sonic SE preferences:
“C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\HALion Sonic SE_64”
“C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\HALion Sonic SE_64’_inactive”
…Or just delete it, it will be newly created while the next start of HALion Sonic SE.
If you have got also installed HALion Sonic or the HALion 4, please reset as well their preferences.
Please reset your Cubase 6 and Cubase 7 by generating a new preferences folder.
In order to do so you must rename the following folder:
Windows Vista/Windows 7/8
“OS Disk \User<Your Username>\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase 6_64”
Please rename to
“OS Disk \User<Your Username>\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase 6_64 inactive”
The same afterwards for Cubase 7 64_bit:
“OS Disk \User<Your Username>\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase 7_64”
Please rename to
“OS Disk \User<Your Username>\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase 7_64 inactive”
Do not rename or delete the whole Steinberg folder
In the Steinberg folder is a Content folder that keeps important data and VST3 presets:
If you have previously deleted the whole Steinberg folder, please re- install the whole Cubase Content (Loopmash 2, Groove Agent one, HALion Sonic SE etc.) for “anyone that uses this computer”
Preferences that you have grown accustomed to and that have taken a lot of time to configure - the key commands for instance - can be copied from the inactive folder to the newly created active preferences folder at a later point.
On Windows it could be that preferences folder is not visible. To see those hidden files:
On the Tools menu in Windows Explorer, click Folder Options.
Click the View tab.
Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders.
