Confirmed. Same result here. After ‘paste channel settings’ the Halion Sonic instrument points to the audio output of the Sampler Track.
Personally I wouldn’t copy plugins in this way, but it is nonetheless a bug worth knowing about. Thanks djgraver.
Actually, this is a nastier bug than I initially thought. It occurs no matter how you copy channel settings. And it is NOT specific to the Sampler Track, but to ALL instrument tracks!
When attempting to copy and paste channel settings, what Cubase appears to be doing is also copying and pasting the entire instrument track. Eg. you have Synth1 on track 1, and Synth2 on track 2. Copy the channel settings of track 2 to track 1 and you will lose Synth1 - it will be replaced by a copy of Synth2.
If this is intentional, it’s not the kind of behaviour I want from a function labeled ‘copy channel settings’…
Having said all of this, I can’t think of a situation where I’m likely to actually hit this bug. Different sound sources need different treatments, so I’d be unlikely to copy channel settings in this way. And for multiple source processing I’d use Group tracks.
Still, it’s a bug, I think. Can anyone else confirm?
goddammit. good that I searched this first. I noticed that as well today working in Cubase 10 Pro! I had to paste the channel settings using a different synth and suddenly, the synth was gone and replaced with another instrument where I copied the channel settings from. so it is a bug. I am hoping to see this fixed in a new release.
