Disabled Track in Template breaks MIDI Inserts Configuration

OS: MacOS 11.2.1
Cubase: 11.0.10 Build 321

  1. The Instrument Track is Activated. I insert and configure rules for a Transformer effect in the MIDI Insert Panel and activate “Record Output on track”.
  2. I deactivate the Track.
  3. I save the Project as Template 01
  4. I open a new Project using the Template 01
  5. I reactivate the Track. The Transformer effect is missing, but oddly enough the Transformer setting “Record Output on track” is on. Unfortunately all Transformer rules are lost.

Is the plug-in really missing? Or is there just a black text on the black background, please? What happens, if you click the “e” button, please?

Hi Martin,
Actually if I click the “e” button the Transformer config pops up with the right rules settings, so yes you’re right: this is just a visual problem. The text is black but the Transformer MIDI Insert works just fine.



Is it the same with a common project? Or can you reproduce it with the template only, please?

The black text happens only when reactivating a Track in a new Project created from a template.
When reactivating from a saved Project, the issue does not take place.


Reported to Steinberg. Thank you.
