Is there a way to find patch names in old program files?

I have an old program file I haven’t worked on in many years… I was using the NI FM7 plugin in one of the songs. I’m not sure what patch… Now, I have the FM8 installed - and it won’t load the patch because Cubase cannot find the FM7.

I am wondering if the patch names would be somewhere in the program file? This way, if the patch still exists in the FM8, I can just load it and the project will work as intended.

Thanks,
Todd

You can load the Cubase project into a text editor and examine it, chances are the patch name is in there

Good news! It works! It is difficult… lots of searching, but I have been successfully finding patch names this way. Many thanks! :slight_smile:
