Halion (incl. Sonic) questions regarding Ratings


yes, I am... no, I haven't...
Hi there,
I am trying to figure it out - but with no success :(

  1. If I have made Ratings for programs (sounds) in Halion, how can I "copy" those to Halion Sonic - so I don't need to do doubletimework?
  2. How can I move Ratings for programs (sounds) in Halion/Sonic from one installation to another (from my desktop, to my laptop, for instance)?
Thank you, you kind ppl :)

Huh - giving a (sort of) answer to my own question - saw the solution on KVR - maybe for somebody else who needs the same:

there is a Halion database - well two databases, one for H6, one for HS3. Location (on Windows) is: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Halion Sonic 3_64
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Halion 6_64

Database file name is the same for both: mediabay3.db

I made a symbiotic link for Halion Sonic DB to be linked on Halion DB; so both uses the same database, and changes are preserved in both ways (you can make a change in either HS or H, and it will be the same on the other one).

Backup your mediabay3 databases, both of them, just in case...
Delete (yes, delete) the mediabay3.db file for HALION SONIC 3
Run as Administrator Command Prompt, and put the following:

mklink "C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Halion Sonic 3_64\mediabay3.db" "C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Halion 6_64\mediabay3.db"

Of course, you need to change [username] with your username, without brackets
