Why do Studio sound card channel assignments get lost ...

… if the sound card is not switched on, but only the Inputs and Outputs assignments are remembered when the soundcard is reconnected.

I have a dual boot system, and I only turn on the RME FF800 (and the other studio stuff) when I boot to the DAW partition.

However, when I have forgotten to turn it on before starting Cubase, I have to reselect the RME AND reselect all the Studio panel sound card channel assignments, whereas the Inputs and Outputs ones are remembered.

I have made all the correct channel assignments part of the Default presets.
