To regain control if this occurs, close the plug-in window then reopen it. This issue does not exist in the 64-bit version of Cubase.
- (Cubase 32-bit only) When performing audio processing via Audio>Plug-Ins menu or region editor window with UAD Direct Developer plug-ins, the UAD Toolbar cannot be used to load or save UAD presets. UAD presets can be loaded using the up/down arrow buttons in Cubase's preset management tools instead. This issue does not exist in the 64-bit version of Cubase.
