Volume not saved for Kontact under Cubase pro 8.

Seemingly at random some kontact instruments load with the volume at 0 also mix decisions are forgotten - ie if in studio drummer I route the kick to another output this tweak is forgotten when the project is reloaded. This happens whether rack or track instrument and it only happens in Cubase. This is really annoying!

This has been happening since cb8 was released - ie the behavior isn’t the result of an update.

Has anyone else experienced this?
