Sample Instruments not importing into cubase 8

First of all, I would like to congratulate Steinberg on an already wonderful product that has been updated to V2 - love the new channel strip.

The only problem I have found, is that in the conversion of SAMPLER INSTRUMENTs when importing into Cubase 8.
All all audio, fx imports superb, but the sampler instruments don’t import correctly, if at all.

I created a drum kit with the sampler instrument in Cubasis and whilst the midi parts and tracks have imported, and show as they should, and groove agent has replaced the sampler Instrument, from Cubasis, the actual preset I created in this case ‘TR-8’ did not import, neither did the sounds?

Is this a bug? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

(IF THIS POSTS SHOWS TWICE, it appeared to me, that the first post wasn’t submitted - at least on my side)


Hi Steve,

Thanks for your message.

Please note that the MiniSampler is exclusive to Cubasis.
When importing MiniSampler tracks to Cubase please freeze them to audio tracks or manually assign its MIDI track to a compatible instrument.
