This is an old MIDI behavior that I don’t think is correct. When you load a project, Nuendo (and Cubase) does not send any MIDI controllers status if you don’t have any automation.
For example: you have a MIDI module with son sounds loaded at different volume levels. When you load a project with some volume values, the MIDI module does not receive any volume values.
I think this is a very wrong behavior that should be corrected.
Anyone noticed it?
