I’m creating General MIDI Level 2 compositions in Cubase Elements 7, played via my Roland XV3080 module. I have created a complete patch map in Device Manager and I select patches by name using the Inspector. When I save, close then reopen the file, all the patches on the module revert to default Piano 1 even though they are all still present in the Inspector when I play the track. GM2 mode is On in the module, which I select using a sysex string from a Cubase track.
What might I be doing wrong?
Do I need to use Program Change messages in each track as well?
And will this work if I save as a MIDI file?
