I’ve used this board to fix the majority of my problems (thanks!), but never found a fix for this.
I’ve had this problem in various versions of both Nuendo and Cubase throughout the years on al matter of different setups and systems, so I’m pretty sure it is not hardware/version related.
What happens: A system crash (they happen right…?), then a reboot, and launching Nuendo after that (but in the past I’ve had the same issue with Cubase as well) it launches as if it’s the first time I’ve ever launched it. It scans all VST plugins, initializes all kinds of data bases, any unregistered plugins/demo versions come back up wanting me to register, it asks if I want to register nuendo, It initializes my audio interface… And then there is two possible cases:
Everything seems to be reset, but in place so I get to carry on where I left off. (have had this one a couple times during the past 2 years, about once every 3-6 months)
worst case (today), all settings are gone.
My routing settings are gone, and so are all of the presets.
My key commands are gone, and so are all the presets.
My program preferences are gone, and so are all the presets.
It’s basically like I have a ‘fresh install’. Now in the past I didn’t care to much because at a couple clicks of my mouse I’d have my settings back in place, but in recent years my setup has grown quite large, and being a composer/sound designer for advertising and TV it’s imperative I am able to switch quickly between projects, and set stuff up quickly when clients come in, so I’ve started relying more and more on presets for routing, projects and key commands. Setting them all back is becomming quite the task! So I was wondering if there is a fix? I’ve come to accept that all my current settings are probably lost, but It would be nice if this was the last time it ever happened.
