I came across a plugin export feature in Cubase 5 which basically exported all the details of my installed Plug-Ins to an XML file.
It got me thinking, so I decided to do a scan of all files on my HD that contained the word VST*.xml. It found four files. I looked at each file and found this one Vst2xPlugins.xmlwhich contains all the installed Plug-In data if you edit it.
My file path for this file was as follows C:\Users_username_\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase 5
The file contains entries like the following for my Albino plugin
I am wondering what will happen if I rename the **_** to something else? Not that Albino would need changing in reality.
I would try it now but I am rebuilding my computer and dont want to screw anything up untill I have taken an image.
What do you all think about the possibility?
