What’s the best way to replace an instrument in the track list with a different instrument?
Say you write some music with one instrument and now you want to play it with a different instrument. So you don’t want to delete the whole track with all your notes; you just want to play them with a new Instrument. Some DAWs have a “Replace” option if you right-click on the instrument, but I don’t see one for Cubase.
If you edit the Instrument field in the Inspector, as shown here, it lets you change the instrument but then it keeps the old name, so in this example I started with Halion, and replaced it in the Inspector with Retrologue but it still says Halion in the track list. I know I can manually edit it to say anything I want but since it assigned it originally when I selected that instrument how do I get it to change it when I change the instrument?
Thanks in advance.
