Cubase cool trick

Post by George Manakos »

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.

First thing I thought of when I saw the new wallpaper. Thanks for completing my thoughts. :)
After 9.5, 10 was so dull. No offense Steinberg but I needed that change. The rest is awesome!

Ok, I tried this and can't get it to work right. I took the two original pics out, put mine in and renamed them identically like the originals. I even used the lower case font and sized the pics to the same dimensions but when when Cubase launches, the splash screen is a lighter grey with smaller black font.
It doesn't recognize my pics. Am I missing something?
