And Lo! … it came to pass that a shiny new PC was delivered unto me and soon it was furnished with a new install of Cubase Artist 10.5
But King Herod of Steinberg was spiteful and due to social distancing, instead of the usual ‘go forth and slaughter’ stuff, he commanded his trusted Download Assistant to play havoc with this new installation and scatter the files of Cubase far and wide across the land of the SSD drive.
And so, when the Not-so-wise man came to venerate himself in front of the shining monitor in the East, he found that Cubase Artist was not as he was expecting to find it.
Instead of producing angelic singing with the Olympic Choir, the Not-so-wise man found himself frustrated and bemused by messages of ‘The plug in Triebwerk (and Hypnotic Dance and Dark Planet also) could not be found’ and ‘Resolve missing files’ for multiple loops and samples … (well every flamin sample or loop in cubase …)
And so the Not-so-wise man went forth to seek wisdom from the knowledge guru of Youtube and many videos he watched but to no avail.
After a week of farting around until he was utterly brassed off, the Not-so-wise man threw up his hands in despair and cried out … ‘I’m totally p***ed off with this now!’
But then a loud voice boomed out … “Go forth and seek out the wisdom of the Forum … for there you shall find many Wise People who shall guide you to the promised land of Installation enlightenment and peace shall come among you…”
Ok … so … I’m really sick of this now … It seems like another case of lots of files being in the wrong place after installation. I’ve uninstalled Artist several times and deleted every last damn folder I could find each time. I’ve tried to read multiple forum posts on this subject but as I’m not the most tech savvy Not-so-Wise man, I struggle to understand them.
So when I now open a project created on my old PC containing loops and samples, it can’t find any of them from any library and there are various librarys missing in Media Bay however I can play samples/loops in Media Bay for the libraries that do appear there. I’ve tried using ‘Locate’ and ‘Search’ but no success.
When I open a project from my old PC that uses Hypnotic Dance, Tiebwerk or Dark Planet, they all appear in Media Bay and I can hear the presets through Media Bay but in the Inspector, all three instruments appear as !!!Triebwerk!!! or !!!Hypnotic Dance!!!
If I open a new project on the new PC, in the inspector, Tribwerk, Hypnotic Dance and Dark Planet are not shown as options (only HALion Sonic SE instead) but all three are there if I open HALion Sonic along with the other VST instruments like Flux.
I’ve looked in all the Steinberg folders on my old PC and files are definitely in different places in my new PC. I will happily list them if that’s any use.
Please … as in PLEASE … if you can give me some pointers on this I’d be very very grateful … But if you could give me suggestions on a beginners level, I’d really appreciate it…!!!
Cheers guys and Merry Christmas…!
