Cubase cool trick

Post by George Manakos » Wed Jan 16, 2019 11:48 pm

Some of you may know you can do this, but to the average every day Windows user this trick can be very cool. You can actually change the startup icon that pops up every time you start cubase and it's loading. Go to ProgramFiles-->Steinberg--->Cubase---->Startup. Or find your folder of Cubase if it's located somewhere else and open the Startup subfolder. In there are pictures of startup, 2-6 depending on the version you have. You can change them with any picture of your choice or even edit them (outside of the folder tho) so that it says your name as well. For example if you use artist cubase, copy the picture you want twice into the Startup folder and rename them after the names of the original two pictures "...artist" and "...x2.00" delete the old ones and you're good to go :) :D

That's a neat little trick. I had no idea you can temper with those icons at all. Cheers, George.

Cool indeed thanks. I found the black and white one quite depressing, now changed with Paint to red background haha!
