OSX: How transfer KC, Macros, PLE scripts to 8?

I presume its possible to copy over your settings to Cubase 8 by just copying the files from

C:\Users<username>\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase 7_64


C:\Users<username>\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase 8_64


Its what I did and so far all OK


this is a daft question maybe but the cubase 8 folder is full of stuff so do you just copy them over from the 7.5 folder and replace them or what please :blush: I’m terrified of knackering something…


I try and migration was success except VST plugs…it scan again …

Hm… For me every setting, all the plugins, everything was just the way I left it in 7.5 when I opened 8. I didn’t do anything. Awesome. (Mountain Lion OSX, 64-bit)

Last time (update from 7 to 7.5) I did it all over manually again: a real waste of time, and painfully searching through the weird folder structure of Cubase (Win 7/64).

This time I at least want to ask:
is there any fast way to get old settings from Cubase 7.5 back into Cubase 8?

How do you all do it?

Hi, whats the MO for transferring all the crucial stuff from 7.5 to 8 in OS X?

best regards,

I just copy / paste everything in the preference folder , works fine here

Thanks, that went fine!

I just installed Cubase 8 and it imported everything automatically from my Cubase 7.5 settings.

Funny, no settings import from 7.5 during update here (and also not back then upgrading from 7 to 7.5)
