MIDI Devices - types of presets

Hi all,

I am again starting to try with MIDI Devices. I did that in Cubase when the function was introduced and I only remember that the edior, etc. was very confusing . As a reaction on user feedback the DOCUMENATION was improved, but the thing itself stayed the same.

ONE thing that I vaguely remember is, that a single device cannot contain BOTH types of presets (reference AND Snapshot presets). I found that disturbing for some of my midi devices, which in fact can do both.

So here are my questions:

  1. Was I right with my finding back then that one single device cannot use BOTH preset types in cubase?
  2. If yes -> Has that changed?
  3. If no -> why?
  4. Is there a clever way to handle such a situation?

Many thanks

Ernst
