Oh… and I looked in the Knowledge base on Steinberg.net. There is a just published “Version History, Issues and Solutions” document for 8.5
There is this:
“6341: No track presets available for Track Control
The presets will appear once you start Cubase without
previously existing preferences from older Cubase versions.
Please delete preferences of previous versions.”
and then there is this:
“6341: No track preset support for input and output
Please note that saving and loading track presets is currently
not supported on Input/Output channels.”
I’m not certain this is referring to the the saved presets for say, the Studio setup I saved in the Studio Tab of VST Connections of Cubase 8.1
Nothing else on saving presets other than those two except for a third blurb about saved Media Bay presets.
I am next going to try to open a Cubase 8 project and see if it restored my VST Connections. If it does I suppose I can save it again… if not, then I will have to recreate!
