I had one robust PC for several years on which I installed successive Cubase versions over time. Just got a new Win 10 64 bit computer and installed Artist 9.5 first. I want to install legacy versions, especially Studio 4. My concern is that on my old box, I wound up with VST and other plugin folders all over the place as generations seemed to put them in different default locations. And when I upgraded from 9 to 9.5, most presets vanished. Nothing tells you where stuff is going on each install & I don’t want to recreate that mess on a new system.
This is also important because I run an SSD C drive for programs and other drives for data, libraries, etc. So I expect to have to change defaults regardless. I seem to remember that there was a lot less flexibility in older versions as to where you put plugins, etc., so need to know that too.
Question: Where can I find info on the default locations for items like VST plugins & sounds, presets (especially track presets), and program presets like preferences and key commands for current and legacy generations of Cubase - primarily SE, 4 and 7 through 9.5?
