When load a project, most VST plugins lost the all or some settings.
So I set a lot of tracks again every time when I load a project.
Kontakt: Lost everythins.
Guitar Rig 6: Lost everything.
Lounge Lizard Session 4: Lost preset selection but restored parameters. this plugin has one sound source so this is not a real problem.
EZBass: Lost sound type.
ValhallaSupermassive: Lost preset selection but restored parameters. not a real problem.
Helm (LV2): Restored all.
I found this issue and following comment,
I also tried with only bridging UIs (by passing ENGINE_OPTION_PREFER_UI_BRIDGES instead of ENGINE_OPTION_PREFER_PLUGIN_BRIDGES). that seems to be working properly
I tried all options of "Add to project (carla)", "Add to project (bridged UI)" and "Add to project (bridged full)", but the all of them behaved the same.
I just tried Helm for win64 VST2.
- Preset selection Parameters LV2 restored restored VST lost restored
Both "Plugin Properties" > "Presets" are show names properly.
Helm has only one sound source, so both make same sound.

Zrythm shows dialog "The project contains unsaved changes." everytime when close app even though I saved just before.
This is probably because of a focus change. For example if you click in the timeline and then click in the piano roll the project will be different because it remembers what was selected. There are lots of details like this saved with the project and the current check just does a
diffon the running project vs the last saved project. Maybe there's a better way to do it.
Plugin properties doesn't show presets for VST plugins, but show presets for LV2 plugins. (Ref: screenshots)
this should be fixed with latest carla-git (I believe there will be a new release next week). bridged plugin states should also be saved/restored properly
regarding helm, it could be a bug on the helm side. I suggest trying with more (libre) plugins to see if you get similar issues and with other hosts as well like ardour
FYI: Carla new version has been released. https://github.com/falkTX/Carla/releases/tag/v2.4.2
I am already using v2.4.2 in the latest builds, will also make a zrythm release soon
