I am new to 8.5 Pro and was experimenting with adding VST instruments. After a few false starts I figured out that if I click the “Add Track Instrument” at the top left of the VST Instruments / Media Bay panel, then I get VST instruments with tracks and sounds when I play my external keyboard, which is great.
But what is not great is that before I discovered that button, I added some VST instruments that didn’t make any sounds and didn’t have any associated tracks. I tried getting rid of them by selecting “No VST instrument”, but now I have 5 lines of useless “No VST Instrument” entries at the top of my VST Instruments list that I cannot seem to get rid of in any way. They are taking up several square inches of valuable screen real estate and they are annoying.
I searched the forums and can’t find a way to either re-order them to the bottom of the list or (what I really want) to just delete them. It seems extraordinary to me that any modern piece of software would be written in a way so that it is possible to accidentally add something to the UI which is then impossible to remove, but it’s beginning to look like this may be the case here.
Am I missing something??
