Preset settings behaviour.

Preset settings behaviour.

Hi all!

One thing I've noticed recently in my main DAWs (latest versions of Cubase and Ableton) is that if I call up a preset and change a setting, then select a different preset, then go back to the first one, it doesn't recall the original preset settings but instead the changed values.

That's a drag because sometimes I'll load up a preset and go crazy, thinking that I can just recall that preset to take it back to that preset's "default". That's how it's been for, oh, the last 15 years of DAW usage.

I can always just remove that plugin instance, re-instantiate it and choose that preset again, but that's pretty annoying.

Mostly I notice it with UAD plugs but I've also seen it with some synths, like Spire. Not sure whether it applies across all plugs regardless of AU/VST/VST3.

Is there something I'm missing here? Some function that's not selected?
