I tried changing some instrument sounds in a style, the WRWALTZ (Weather Report Waltz), and now I cannot get it back to where it started.

How do I get a style to revert to the instrument sounds it originally came with?

Thank you in advance for all the generous expertise here on this forum!

If you go into Style picker and reload the Style it should return you to the original instruments. If you made changes and then saved the style without renaming it, you will have over written the original. Getting back then requires a reinstall.

I don't have a style called WRWALTZ but I do have a midi-only style called WR_WALTZ..... is this the one you mean? If you can confirm this, a user will be able to post the instruments used on each track.

Yes, it is WR_WALTZ.STY W-Report Waltz Fusion.

I think I must've written over the original, and I did do a reinstall last night. When I opened up the file it still appeared to have the changed midi sounds associated with it.

I didn't realize this was a midi-only style. I have gotten to liking the RealTracks sound better than midi pretty quickly it would seem.

If you're loading the song, the instruments will be different due to saving the song that way. Try a new song and THEN load the style. The style should be with the original instruments.

Also, if you replaced the original midi tracks (yellow names) with Realtracks (green names), simply go back into the Realtrack picker and set the RTs to none to unload them. This will return you to the initial midi tracks.

And remember, substituting a MIDI track in a style with a RealTrack does not play the notes from the MIDI style; it plays whatever the RealTrack is. Period.

Also, if you load a swing MIDI style and substitute a RealTrack with straight feel, that track is not going to play swing, it will play straight.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
