Impulse response file missing

Post by MERC476 » Thu Feb 08, 2018 9:52 pm


I don't usually use Reverence too often so i'm not sure when this started. When I click a preset, it states that the impulse response is missing. I've tried searching the content folder in the appdata folder and even re-install reverence from the additional content folder in the installation folder but still no luck. Any suggestions? Thanks!

REVerence needs these three content files


on Windows located in

C:\Users\$YourUserName$\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Content\VST Sound.

What's the name of the missing file ?
May be your preset contains an imported impulse response file ?!

Only the first one is required actually, the other two are used by the VST Amp Rack and VST Bass Amp.

So if you can load any other REVerence preset, that means that the content was installed correctly.

So there could be two possibilities, either you're trying load a preset that used a custom impulse response (like Andreas suggested) or you installed the Nuendo trial in the past. Nuendo has additional IRs that wont work if you only own Cubase.

In the past you solved the issue by just reinstalling Cubase using the full installer. Try doing that again.
