Saving File Format Presets

You can create file format presets from your favorite or most used file format settings.


  1. In the File Format section, set up the File Type and the file type-specific settings that you want to save in your preset.
  2. Click the Preset field, and select Save Preset from the pop-up menu.
  3. Enter a name for your file format preset.
  4. Click OK.


A file format preset including the file type, sample rate, bit depth, and the Export as settings is saved. You can select it from the Preset pop-up menu.

Presets are saved with the program and can be used for any project. Presets are stored in the following location:

  • On Windows: \Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\<program name>\Presets\AudioFileFormatPreset

    On macOS: /Library/Preferences/<program name>/Presets/AudioFileFormatPreset under your home directory

Presets are also saved in profiles in the Profile Manager.
