I am currently setting up my new DAW - I stored so many Plugin presets over the years in N3 and N4 - now I am using C5 as well (C6 later the day and I hope the corresponding Nuendo release as well someday)…
I don’t get it.
In N3 it was easy. userdata-folder/Steinberg/Nuendo3/presets
In N4 it became strange, often I had to “import from xml” or something, the other day the presets were gone again, rescanning with the Mediabay usually fixed that.
Moving on to Cubendo 5 - I was not able to find any of my presets again. Some I found in the userdata-folder/VST3 Presets. Cool! Just moved them to the new install. No success! And hell, where are the presets I recently saved in C5? A quick Win7 search showed - they are now in “documents/VST3 Prests” - Mediabay listed them but listed some (!!) of the older ones in the userdata/roaming/ as well - but NOT all… For example Waves C4… They are all there, *.vstpres - but they are not shown but one. Those who are not listed are made 2008 - the one which is there is from 2 months ago.
In addition I have in my Nuendo 4 userdata folder that preset folder - here are all my older presets stored - from Nuendo 4. I am NOT able to use them anymore.
I don’t get it. I want to organize them now in a better way cause I can’t find what I need.
How can I easily manage all my presets in a way that enables me to:
- backup/restore them in a minute
- use older presets as well - I don’t want to loose my work over and over again
- can share them in more then just one host, for example in Nuendo 5, Cubase 5 and Cubase 6.
I have so many presets but actually I just can access a few…
