No midi sound after changing VSTi's in Cubase 8.5

  1. Create instrument track and select VSTi.
  2. Record or paste midi part into track. Press play and you hear the midi sound as you should.
  3. Remove VSTi and replace with a different VSTi (any other one will do) and the new VSTi will not produce any sound.

Been dealing with this for a year now!

The only work around I’ve found is to create a brand new Instrument Track with the new VSTi and copy and paste the midi to it- THEN it will sound again.

Obviously this is a total hassle and waste of time. Anyone have an answer?
