Migrate preferences to new machine?

Recommended Posts

Hi, setting up my new computer and wondering if there's a way to migrate my settings from the cakewalk on my old machine? 

Or is it best re set up fresh?

Thanks!

You can copy (everything or selectively) the following:

The Cakewalk AppData directory:  C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Cakewalk\Cakewalk Core (including an export of your current keybindings as a .kbn file)

The Cakewalk Content directory (mine is in a non-default location, not sure what the default is)

Great! Will check that out. Thanks!

IF you have the old machine up and running, you can also "start fresh" and copy the preference pages manually from the old to the new (or even screen capture them). Some settings you will definitely not want at default values (MIDI Playback "Prepare using:" buffer, Audio Record Latency Manual Adjustment, etc.). As some things have changed or been added, it is a good opportunity to review things and find out what they actually do for you.
