It’s about ‘Family Name’ field in a ‘Save preset’ window. Maybe in some other places on other fields is the same problem, I didn’t check. But observation is following:
If I double click on Family Name field, I can add new Family Name. It is ok. I added new when saved a preset in Prologue (the same is in Halion and Groove), but in saved preset my new Family Name didn’t appeared. I checked twice and more, closed and opened plugin window, nope - Family Name didn’t show. Then I added it again by pressing doubleclick. And the same - Family Name didn’t show. After reopening Cubase my saved preset have a Family Name. Yoohooo!
But now I have two identical names on top of a list of Family Names. If I select ‘more…’ and open search window, there is only one instance of my added names. It is Ok. I suggest that the first list is like recently used and/or default first 18 names in an alphabetical order.
The question is - how to remove one of them? It is disturbing if something is wrong. (I’m a sysop and data integrity is my working donkey)
It seems that Cubase…
- have problems with data refreshing;
- don’t check for existing names.
I suppose that there somewhere should be a button ‘Delete’ if is option to add something, right?
I saved three presets with first saved Family Name and fourth preset with second saved Family Name. Both family names are identical except their codes in a preset file (.vstpreset files at location …\Documents\VST3 Presets\Steinberg Media Technologies\Prologue). Presets with first saved family name have code ‘9PS4JOI0A29UKAE4VUADG8GNV0’, but preset with second name - code ‘NF12CK72BSAVKAE2HFH1MMISO2’. These codes I found in MetaInfo block at the end of .vstpreset files. So - identical names, but internal codes are different. I offer these data only for reason to show that second name added without checking it’s existance in a list. From this point THIS IS ERROR!
Please, discuss on this!
