Everytime I upgrade, I spend a lot of time re-tweaking the interface to make it work the way I’m used to. Sure would be nice in installation included an option to keep preferences from the previous version, but since that feature request has been repeated and ignored for as long as I’ve been using Cubase/Nuendo (about 12 years), I won’t hold my breath.
So, rather than having to re-invent the wheel with every upgrade, last time I started taking notes. This time I found my notes and added to them. I know everyone doesn’t share my preferences, but for anyone who does and may be trying to find an obscure setting in preferences, here are some that are important to me.
First, some preferences (but not all, as far as I’ve been able to tell) can be brought forward by simply copying the appropriate files, if you can figure out which they are, from
I specifically copied the following:
• Presets\RAMPresets.xml, and
• Presets\KeyCommands* (entire contents of folder)
The following needed to be re-set manually:
Turn Off Steinberg Hub
• Preferences > General
• un-tick “Use Steinberg Hub”
Turn Off Automatic Record-Enable on Selected Track
• Preferences -> Editing -> Project & MixConsole
• Enable Record on Selected Audio / MIDI Track.
Auto-monitor when Record Enabled
• Preferences > VST
• Auto Monitoring
• select “While Record Enabled”
Solo Track Follows Selection
• Preferences > Editing > Project & Mixconsole
• tick “Enable Solo on Selected Track”
Set Linear (vs Musical) Time Mode as default
• Preferences > Editing
• Default Track Time Type
• select “Time Linear”
Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a setting to “Widen” the horizontal scroll bar, or to restore the end nodes that allow you to “Bump” it left/right. I will be cursing this oversight frequently until I get used to using Shift-MouseWheel instead.
Hope some of this helps someone. It’ll probably help me to find it here next time I upgrade. (If there’s an easier way to do any of this please enlighten me.)
