Creating A User Default Setting In Avid Channel Strip

Following on from my recent series on Channel Strips I thought I would post this simple guide to creating a user default.
To create a user default setting I made the changes I wanted to Channel Strip. These were to change the default process order from EQ, Filter, Dynamics, Volume to Filter, Dynamics, EQ, Volume. Change the LF and HF sections to shelf and hide the EQ section. I then saved the setting as “CS Compressor” from the preset menu at the top of the plug-in window.
With the setting saved I then set this setting as the plugin’s user default as shown below:

The final stage is to change the plug-in default from factory to user setting:

The plug-in should now open by default using the setting you saved.
