I think I’m being a bit anal because honestly…I’m not sure if very many use the “save selected” and “load selected” feature that is found ONLY with Instrument Rack. Therefore a feature not found with Instrument Tracks. Basically you load a multtimberal instrument as a instrument rack. For example Toontrack EZ drummer Pop Basic, after activating all outputs it has 16 channels. Highlight all 16 channels. Go to functions menu, the upper right triangle drop-down in the mix console, and select “save selected channels.”
Now, if you ever need these in the future, open toontrack, activate all the outputs, focus all outputs, then use “load selected.”
Please don’t ask me what gets loaded. Please don’t ask me how this is different than loading multi-track presets. And Please don’t ask how this is different than importing track presets. I have tried over the years, but based on version changes, continual bug fixes with import, I gave up. I do believe when loading multi-track presets you need to focus the correct number of channels in order for the multi track preset to load.
All of this I think is due to evolution of Cubase over a number of years where today, there is IMO too many options to load and save and not knowing exactly what gets load/saved with any of these options.
Sorry for the tangent, but I think this is one of the few left-out functions of Instrument Tracks.
