-Before freezing an instrument record the midi CC automation on the instruments automation track. ​Otherwise the midi CC automation will be ignored!+The standard Cubase "​freeze"​ function does not work for tracks that use automation via midi CC. If the standard "​freeze"​ function is used, the track will be "​frozen"​ without automation. There are two ways to workaround this. 
 +  - Record the midi CC automation as normal automation and then freeze the track. 
 +  - Record the audio output of the track on a group track. This solution seems to work best.

 +Notice that MIDI CC automation "​jump"​ to new values and track automation slide to new values. This may create audible differences! To avoid this problem make sure that there is only a very little distance between to new and the old CC value. This is done by repeating the previous CC value (min 3 times) just before the new CC value. It would be nice if there was a more automatic solution to this problem. ​

 If automation is received on "​Mapping-1"​ channel 1 it is transmitted on "​Mapping-1 Out" channel 1. This enable recording of automation as MIDI CC. Notice that automation received as MIDI CC does not generate any output, only automation generated otherwise. If automation is received on "​Mapping-1"​ channel 1 it is transmitted on "​Mapping-1 Out" channel 1.
