Installing and Updating C_brains (Cubase 11 and Earlier)

C_brains ships as a standard .jzml file and can be installed like any other MK Lemur controller. If you are new to using MK Lemur controllers, check our main article Installing MK Lemur Controllers for first steps.

For instructions on how to update to a new version, see Software Updates: Transferring Settings to a New Version.

1. Install Logical Editor Presets

  1. Quit Cubase.
  2. Drag the C_brains Command Set folder into Cubase’s Logical Edit presets folder.

Tip #1: If the Library folder is hidden, click on “Go’ in the Finder menu bar, then hold down the alt key to reveal the Library folder.

Tip #2: Some installations of Cubase might not create a Logical Edit folder. Just create a folder named Logical Edit f it doesn’t exist.
C: // Users / *Your Username / AppData / Roaming / Steinberg / *Your version of Cubase / Presets / Logical Edit

Tip: The easiest way to jump to this file location is to open the command prompt and type %appdata%/Steinberg
