I have discovered I cannot use the load or save menu options for BFD2 when I open the VSTi in 8.0.5.
For instance, I cannot load a preset, or a kit, or a key map. The little load/folder icon just lights up and nothing happens. The same thing happens when I try to save a preset, kit, or key map.
If I open the exact same project in 7.5 it works fine. It worked fine in 8.0., so I’m assuming it’s a new bug in 8.0.5.
I now have to close my project, open it in 7.5, load or save what I need to through BFD2, save the project, and open it back up in 8.0.5. This is extremely frustrating. I use BFD2 as my drums for every single project. I have the 64 bit version, so it isn’t related to the many 32-bit/VST bridge issues Cubase is plagued with.
This is conjunction with the skinny scroll bars, not having basic text editing functionality in the track name info area makes using this software aggravating. On the plus side, the VST plugin manager and render-in-place are awesome.
UPDATE peAk discovered a workaround for this. See peAk’s post below.
