I'm trying to import my C6 key commands into C7 but C7 doesn't recognize the XML save file from C6. Instead it appears to be looking for a file with a ".key" extension. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
PS: Already copied the pref files from User/<me>/AppData/Steinberg/Roaming/Cubase 6_64 to User/<me>/AppData/Steinberg/Roaming/Cubase 7_64 then renamed the ShuttlePro.xml file to ShuttlePro.key to no avail.
Cubase 7 no longer uses the .xml file format for key commands. It want tos see a file with the extension .key
No, that's backwards! It's the .key file that is deprecated, and for whatever reason they have not removed the facility to import them. KC files and almost all the settings files are xml files.
What I am saying is that even though it appears that you should use the import function to import a .key file, there is no way to create one. Therefore it must be done manually.
The way to get the file into your C7 installation is to save a Key Commands preset in C6, go fish it out of its settings folder and move it manually to the Key Commands preset folder that belongs to Cubase 7.
