Missing Logical presets menu in Cubase Elements 12

The Logical presets menu is not there in Cubase 12.

I know Logical presets are now stored in the Documents folder (Windows), but my “user presets\logical edit” folder is empty. Someone gave me a copy of those files and I pasted them in that folder, but it didn’t work.

I tried with a clean, fresh reinstall of Cubase, didn’t work.

Am I the only one with this issue?

Any Idea?


See Selecting Logical Editor Presets

I’m talking about Logical presets, not Logical Editor.

Logical editor is not available in Cubase Elements, but Logical presets used to be there in the Midi menu, and they are gone after I upgraded from 11 to 12.

I’m telling you that the menu has changed, and I supplied a link to the documentation.

This is how the Midi menu looks in Cubase Elements 12:


In Cubase Elements 11, there’s a an additional Logical presets menu, inside the Midi menu. I’m starting to think that Steinberg simply removed the Logical presets in Cubase Elements 12. Maybe other Elements users can confirm that.

The disappearance of the menu item “MIDI Logical Presets” really SUCKS.

If Steinberg think the Logical Editor is a key feature of Cubase, They should not have removed the menu item, I think.

Well, at least Cubase Pro users have the Logical Editor.

In Elements we used to have the Logical presets but now they are gone it seems.

In previous versions, sometimes the Logical presets dissapeared, but it was fixable by copying the actual presets from program files\steinberg to users\appdata\etc… but this time those presets are nowhere to be found. I tried with the presets from Cubase Elements 11, but it didn’t work.

@kennysynth this topic is about Elements, not Pro.

@Giovanni_Buchelli That’s interesting. I thought the Logical Editor was a Cubase Pro only feature.

There is still a key command for that, if you try it, what happens?

There’s no Logical Editor in Cubase Elements, but we used to have Logical presets.

I’m figuring that out now! d’oh!

It worked!
The menu is gone but the presets browser is still there.

Thank you!

Aaaand, the logical presets are gone again in CE 12.0.20 .

This time, both the “apply logical presets” and the logical editor window disappeared from the key commands menu, they are totally gone and nowhere to be found. They were already gone from the Midi menu since Cubase 12.0.

Something weird is going on with logical presets and Midi logical editor in Cubase Elements 12.

I think I’m coming back to Cubase 11.
