Hi ya, It seems to me that Options\Preferences settings should be sticker/more permanent. I'm in the habit of turning off my external Audiophile drive when not in use. Though the RealTracks and RealDrums location settings in Options\Preferences\Song Generation correctly point RealBand to that drive, the setting often reverts back to the C drive (C\bb). Since the tracks are on the external drive, RealBand barks about not being able to find them, though I'm not currently using the tracks. I have to frequently change this setting back to, in my case, H\bb. In fairness, this sometimes happens because I've tried to generate a new part before turning on the drive prior to opening RB.

Another setting is the Options\Preferences\Audio driver settings, where RealBand forgets my ASIO-driven Focusrite driver and wants to revert to MME. I then have to repoint it to the ASIO device.

Thanks!!

It should ask for the 3 folder locations bb-RealTracks-Drums
there should be an option Don't Ask Again.
Might be the same with your ASIO you have unplugged the usb device ???

After you have closed RealBand with all the correct settings, create a folder in the RealBand folder "Config Backup"
list the RealBand folder by newest date
copy RB.CFG RealBand.INI DEFAULT.RWS with all the correct settings to that folder.
Now you have a backup.
Add the text below under Code: to a text file, rename it RealBand Reset My Defaults.bat
Now just run the bat file to start RB with your saved settings.
You can right click Run As Administrator if any problems.

Code:
del "c:\RealBand\RB.CFG"
del "c:\RealBand\RealBand.INI"
del "c:\RealBand\DEFAULT.RWS"
copy "c:\RealBand\Config Backup\DEFAULT.RWS" "c:\RealBand\DEFAULT.RWS" 
copy "c:\RealBand\Config Backup\RB.CFG" "c:\RealBand\RB.CFG" 
copy "c:\RealBand\Config Backup\RealBand.INI" "c:\RealBand\RealBand.INI"

start "" "c:\RealBand\RealBand.exe"

exit


This way you can start RB in any mode or settings you like, just save another lot of settings to another folder "Config Backup2" and create another bat/exe for it.

You can convert the bat file to an exe file with an icon
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/File-Management/Batch-To-Exe-Converter.shtml
At the Bottom of the post right click save RealBand2017.ico.png rename RealBand2017.ico
or add any icon you like, search "icons" google or create your own.

In Bat to EXE Options > Miscellaneous > Administrator Manifest
Click Compile to create the RealBand Reset My Defaults.exe
You can pin it where you like or create a shortcut.
