Change an Instrument deletes all Notes from Trackpattern?!

Hello i have a Project with some Rewire embedded devices. If i try to change them with a VST Plugin. I get faults. I want hold the Pattern Notes for Track, only change Instruments!!! But if i simply select instrument list and add VST i get error. The VST is showed in instrument list then, but it not plays. It plays still the Rewire instrument. If i first delete instrument from List, and add then the VST i can play with keyboard an it give sound, but the patterntrack notes all are gone. Is there a way to change Samples/instruments/Vsts in generally with saving the Patternnotes in Channel? i hope u understand what i mean.

with best regards

I stumbled on your post while writing a topic in “Ideas & suggestions”.
We have to swap instruments of our selection, before deleting an instrument to save the notes. Renoise automatically swap the notes to the replacement instrument.
It would be a little easier if deleting an instrument does not delete the associated notes. It’s a minor improvements, but original behaviour is quite annoying sometimes.
