Here’s another confusing one from a Cubase Elements 11 newbie…
I program a beat using Groove Agent, but when I play back, I get no sound.
I research the issue and find a YouTube video (but for 10.5) saying that it’s likely that my Logical Presets dropdown is greyed out (which it is). It says I need to copy a presets folder from the Steinberg folder to RoamingApps.
So I go to the Steinberg folder under Program Files, and there’s no Preset folder there, and nothing like as many folders as the guy on the video had - he had dozens of folders in there. Which is worrying. (See Screenshot). And no sign of Groove Agent.
I do find Groove Agent. It’s under Program Data, with a whole bunch of other stuff. (See Screenshot). I don’t know if that’s normal but everything other than Logical Presets seems to be working, so I’ve decided not to worry about it. I just need to find a Presets folder, like the YouTube guy advised.
I search the whole computer for ‘Presets’. And I find that actually I have a lot of presets in Roaming Apps. They’re not in a single folder - there seems to be a separate folder for each Midi Instrument - but they are there for Groove Agent. (See Screenshot.)
So, now I’m at a loss. The solution to my original problem seemed to be to copy Presets to RoamingApps. That’s not as easy as it sounds, but it appears that that’s not the problem anyway.
I need a drink.
