Audio Connections - External FX, External Instruments - Device Port Not Connected


When assigning identical device ports for Inputs, External FX and External Instruments, Cubase prompts -“The selected device port is already used. Selecting the port for this bus will replace previous connections.” The previously assigned device ports are “Not Connected.”

It would be helpful if there was an advanced feature that allowed the retention of identical device port assignments. Also, the option to have multiple instances of external instruments and external FX. A multi-instance External Instrument Input Plugin and Audio Insert I/O plugin independent of this system would be great.

This would help optimize workflow so that device ports do not require reassignment while multitasking. I’ve experimented with presets/favorites as a workaround but I still find it to be an interruption and it does not solve the multi instance issue.

Thank you
