I am really struggling to find a way to get my HALion Sonic SE3 as a virtual sound instrument to load as a vst instrument track in Cubase Elements 11.
I have any screen shots you would like me to provide if needed, but know that I have tried clicking the ‘install again’ button in the Steinberg download assistant for both my Cubase 11 AI + Cubase Elements 11 product downloads.
Note I have been using the product find for audio tracks and even using vst plug ins from cubase, and third parties.
The moment I however go to load any VST instrument such as Halion Sonic I always get a (No Vst instrument) this is after I have installed again.
I need exact processes here to get this to work and to avoid me going over and over it again (as I have been doing in my spare time thus far).
Thank you for you help, but in the response could you take into consideration my history is as such .
I obtained UR 12 coupled with access to Cubase 9 AI LE in 2017 or 2018 >>> I then upgraded to Cubase Element 11 a couple of years or so ago. >>>>>> I then reinstalled windows on my pc, and a new SSD hard drive.
I had to “RE-ACTIVATE” the software. So did that, and the reason I outline this history is I am concerned with my potential upgrading to Cubase 12 very soon that I do not want to have issues down the track with files or previous versions getting in the way of functionality. Is something like a preferences folder I have read about likely to affect things if some content/folders have been copied and pasted at some point.
I please need some help with this, and details please in the process advice, not just , ‘‘reinstall the whole thing from scratch’…I need to know what that entails…do I need to "uninstall using windows uninstaller? or anything like that too (as opposed to pressing install again in the steinberg download assistant’.
I don’t know if you know but if you type things into the internet getting a straight answer is a long winded process, and most of the time the answers dont really apply to each individual circumstance.
Please note…my history of purchase
AS it stands I have a elicensed version of Cubase 11 Elements. I have a Hardware UR 12 (with a serial number) and registration with activation on the 02/09/22, along with UR 12 having a serial number and a registration back in 2017.
I know I have the Library manager telling me the items I just download are in the library manager, and I will attach a screen shot of that…
So the question lies in around what would I have to do to make sure the installation ensure there is nothing missing or that there is no conflict with the way the software is reading the vst instrument for HALion Sonic SE3.
What a mission man. It’s been a 24 hour day, and this is not the first time in the last week I have devoted all my time ti research just to correct this issue.
I will attach a post from a user called Sundqjan where he talks about "program data’ and app data being confused. I think at times I have seen crossing over files between those too areas.
I am at my wits end here .
Thanks for you help in advance.
