Where are Personal Preferences / Custom Presets saved to for Sound Forge Pro was created by 55trucker

Hello:

I've been using Sound Forge for quite a few years now, currently using 11, generally this would not be an issue but seeing as I have so many customs entries for the EQ, Fader, Stereo Expand I can't afford to lose them, in the past if the op/sys was lost the main program would still be available as my *programs* folder is in a different partition than the op/sys.

I have to take down the op/sys as it has an unrecoverable issue, I have already created the new replacement system & Sound Forge has been reassociated with it. The problem I have is not being able to find the folder where all of the entries for the options such as the above are found. I've looked in both the *user*/appdata/local & the roaming folders that Sony placed there, the folder is NOT in the main program folder. I've copied the settings from those folders to the new ones and have no change.

The old program (which is still active) displays my entries & they work, the new program does not.

Does anyone have any idea as to where this folder is located?

Hi 55TRUCKER

There is no one simple answer to this question, because depending on what type of plugin/effect it is, it may be saved to a different location.

Most of what you are looking for, is actually saved in the Windows Registry.
Type "regedit" into the Windows Search bar and run RegEdit.

Here are the main locations:
\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DirectShow\Presets
\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sony Media Software\Sound Forge\11.0\Presets
\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DirectShow\Presets\FX Packages

Another person on the internet, has already written an excellent FAQ on this topic, which I recommend you read here:

All I can say is..........WOW!

I would never have even considered that route,

Followed your lead, went to the link you supplied & imitated the directions & copied the various reg keys from the old systems registry into the new registry & presto! ...they all showed up in the new program.

Can't Thk U enough for that info, this is the only forum where someone who knew the program had the answer.

thx,

Steve

Thanks Steve.

Quite a while back, I experienced a similar problem with a different program.
When I discovered the Windows Registry is where the gold is hidden, I then went on a fishing expedition and Sound Forge was one of the first programs I explored in the Registry. Using software often enough, also gives you the skill of becoming a good detective !

There are quite a few good detectives on the Movie Studio Zen Forum.
If I don't know something, one of the other senior forum members will often know the answer.

Cheers :)
