I seem to be having a strange problem with Cubase 9.5 ( I lived with the same issue on 8 ) not saving my External Instrument audio connections.
Below are the steps that I have taken. It would be great of any of you guys could tell me if there is anything I have missed.
Set up midi connections through Midi device Manager
Go to VST Connections - External Instruments
Add new device
Choose the midi connection the device is attached too
Choose the audio inputs the device is connected too
Go to the plug in manager and add the device to my custom plugin folder
Save the Project as a template
Save the project itself and back up,
Close down cubase
When reopening the Project or the template all of the External Instruments are missing from vst connections.
However, if i just set this up as standard inputs in vst connections, to use my devices with the old school method with midi and audio tracks, the connections will save.
My Setup is as follows
Audio interface - Steinberg MR816 CSX
GUI -Windows 8.1
Processer 5960x not overclocked
Synths being connected
Moog Sub 37
Prophet 08 Rack
Access Virus Ti2
Akai Z4 Sampler
Novation Supernova Rack
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as having external instruments would greatly improve my workflow
