Midi Channel default routing

Hi Chaps,

As a noob to Cubase I am having some initial setup problems. In Elements 9, when I create a new Midi track or dissolve a part into multiple tracks, the routing for the track appears to default to whatever that particular channel was used for in the past, even if I am starting a new project. As I have a Korg Kronos connected, this plays havoc with the patches I have set up on the Kronos as it changes them all! Is there a way to set Cubase so that the routing is always OFF when creating new tracks please?

thanks all
