Cubase Elements 8 - Default midi output device

When I import a midi file is there a way to route all the channels to an external keyboard, by default.

I have setup my keyborad and installed the patch library in cubase, all good. In midi import preferences I have selected to extract the 1st patch. When I import a midi file, it reads the channel and program correctly, but it set the output of each track to ‘Microsoft GS wave table synth’. I have to change the output (in the track inspector) to route to my external keyborad manually, for each track, which is bit anoying.

Is there a way to set the default output of midi to my external keyborad instead of ‘Microsoft GS wave table synth’

Thanks guys… :slight_smile:


The only one way is to disable all other MIDI Ports in the Devices > Device Setup > MIDI Device. I believe, you don’t need the Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth anyway, right?

Appart from this, there is no way, how to set the default MIDI Port for the imported MIDI tracks.
