I’m suffering this same issue in Cubase 8.5 and Cubase 9.5 Pro…
I want to copy a RACK instrument event with a fair bit of automation (see picture below) to a new TRACK instrument of the same vsti plugin:
Neither drag’n’drop copying nor duplicating the event copies the automation across… so obviously rack instrument automation does not follow the event to a track instrument. I can manually copy each CC’s data, go through the CC dialogue box, match up the CC# and paste the data on the track event - but is there a way to tell Cubase to associate the automation from a RACK instrument event with the same event copied to a TRACK instrument lane OR copy all the automation across at the same time?
This has been driving me insane ! Please any advice or assistance will be thoroughly appreciated!
