1.Create MIDI channel
2.Insert MIDI plugin BeatDesigner on MIDI insert of said channel
3.Notice default Steps# is 16
4.Click Pattern Bank 2, click C key (first key)
5.Double Click/Increment Steps for Pattern Bank 2/Pattern 1 (C key) and increase to 32.
8.re open project
9. Revisit the BeatDesigner plugin and you will see the steps for Bank 2/Pattern 1 have reverted to 16-steps
You can do the above also saving a preset, and it will not reload the steps on open project, nor will it reload the steps if you reload the preset.
Another MIDI plugin had similar save issues that I believe they fixed in 10.5, and that was the CC mapping of StepDesigner not saving in presets/not projects. ie, the two CC slots were always global.
