I host 99% of my VST instruments in Vienna Ensemble Pro, and would like this to load by default when I create a new Instrument Rack. Is this possible?
This way, it’s not possible. You always have to specify the Instrument you want to load.
But you could create a Track Preset and load this.
I prefer to use the rack instruments so that way I can move the return audio busses wherever I want (rather then multi-channel returns all being within automation lanes of the laded instrument track). Oh well.
