    Export Avid user profile?

    I want to export the settings of my Avid user profile. I'm moving to a different Avid for a different job and don't want to remake my keyboard. 

    How to?

    You can copy your specific .avs file from the "Avid Users" folder, but unless the computer you're going to has the EXACT same version of Composer, you really should rebuild your profile from scratch, especially if the 2nd computer has a newer version than yours. There are always enough differences in parameters and some new parameters that will make carrying over an existing profile problematic at best.

    Hmm I'm going to MC6 from 5.5

    I'll remake it. Thanks for the advice!

    You're quite welcome, and in this case you are definitely doing the right thing.Yes

    In fact, with every major version upgrade, (X.0 and X.5) you should always do a fresh rebuild of your profile.
