I have two problems;
I recently had my system drive die and during the migration assistant and setup assistant processes I ended up with a permissions nightmare because i had to migrate data from a number of different sources so the user ID’s did not match from the previous system user name to the current one. I have resolved those issues on all other software data files (AFAIK) except my older cubase 4 projects - now on all of those projects (that were created under the old system) I keep getting the message that I only have read permissions on those files which means i have to resave them under a new tittle and folder. I have checked a number of the old projects and the results are the same and I have verified that the permissions on the folder show my user name with read and write priveledges but my user account shows up 2nd in the list, the system as the first user, on all of the cubase 4 project folders and the option for " make me the owner" is greyed out. I will hunt on the mac forum again but I thought someone here may have a sundry tip for the problem
Unfortunately a number of my pluggin presets were corrupted on my most up to date back up files and some of these are in use in the projects. As a result I am getting message from cubase that some of the files data is missing or corrupted. I was under the impression that a cubase project remembered the setting in a vsti regardless if it has been saved as a preset so why would it not just remember the settings? Does a cubase project file still reference a vsti preset and then remember the edits? I know there have been occassions where i have edited sound file in a specific project and forgotten to save the preset but when I reopen a project the settings are retained. I would like to have a clearer understanding of what happens in this case and because some of the projects are older I dont remember exactly what sound was used in each vsti. But i want to know if i can safely ignore the message and go about resaving the presets ( for the purpose of updating my preset library) because the sounds are accurate to what I had edited in the project.
Hope that’s clear
