Vst effects resetting to default (noob question I know)

I’m sure this is a real noob question so please be patient with me…
My vst effects return to default settings when reopening the project.
What an I missing.

Example: I set my H reverb to “large hall”, and when reopening it waiting there on “default”…



This shouldn’t happen. It works as expected to me (and I believe all other users, otherwise we would see a long thread on this topic here on the forum already).

Could you try in Cubase Safe Start Mode [Disable preferences], please?

Hey thanks for replying.
Good to know, and in fact is really surprised me.
Have just tried safe mode and the same thing happened.
All effects on default/full reset

And just to make sure - I’m using the 11Pro


I still have a feeling, it must be somehow preferences related. Could you please backup your all Cubase preferences folders and delete them. Then start Cubase 11 (to make sure, you get really the factory settings)?

Cubase Preferences folders are:
Mac: ~/Library/Preferences/Cubase X
Win: %appData% Steinberg/Cubase _X__64

If VST reset to default it is VST’s problem not Cubase’. I ditch such plugins. It is for sure a plugin’s bug 100%

Ok - it seems like some plugins are not yet updated to work with 11.
These are legal legitimate ones, but I guess a day after an update it may be too much to ask…

the original Steinberg plugins do work as far as I can see.
