how to save midi mappings?

I already know about saving a current set as default   (I do that, but that's not what I'm after here), I'm trying to save midi mappings (from an external controller) to control my instrument and drum racks whenever I load them -  I also know that you cannot save midi maps in .ADG but only in .ALS - I also know that you're supposed to be able to save the whole track, and this makes sense!.... but it's not working.

any ideas?

(I'm running the current 9.7.1 btw)

    I'm puzzling with the same thing. Loading the whole track doesn't work for 9.7.2 All external midi mappings are gone.

    Is there any way? anyone?

    thanks

    I've just been reading about this. It looks like the only way to save MIDI mappings on the config-ed parameters on a 3rd-party plugin is to save that plugin with all the MIDI mappings as a SET with that single MIDI track, and then when you are working on another project, drag the SET (yes, the whole set, not just the track in the set) into the new project, and the MIDI mappings will be attached. 

    I've tried dragging just the track, saving the plugin within a Rack and midi-mapped the macros etc. Neither of those work. Save single MIDI track as set seems to be the best option. 

    I just updated to 9.7.4.

     

    EDIT: Actually, I just tested with AAS Chromaphone, and dragging the set (with a single track of Chromaphone with a few MIDI mappings from an Akai APC25) into a new session did NOT bring the midi mappings. Boo...
