Chord Track Does Not Save Scales with the Project

When I work with the scales in the chord track, everything works great, but when I save the project and exit, and then reopen it, my scale choices revert to one type of scale.

For example, let’s say that I have C Major, D Dorian, and B Minor, in different parts of the song, then when I close and reopen the project, all will be switched to whatever scale appears at the top of the Scales dialog box, for example, C Major, D Major, B Major. The roots are kept but the scales are changed.

Is this a bug or am I missing something?

I have upgraded to the latest version of Cubase Pro 11.0.41. All suggestions highly appreciated.

Yeah, but I’m not sure what based on your description.

Are you creating Scale Events on the Chord Track & it is loosing them?

Yes, the scale events are on the chord track. I put, let’s say, D minor for a few bars and then G Lydian. Then the next day, I find they are switched to D Major and G Major.

Can you post screenshots of your Chord Track (before and after) and make sure to include its Inspector.

If you have Automatic Scales enabled, try turning that off (in my opinion it should always be off).

I don’t use automatic scales.

These people seem to have the same issue (I think it’s a bug):

I think you might be correct, @Symmetry.
