For some reason, whenever I had selected one of the guitar MIDI instruments in Garageband, I get a sound like a xylophone, but when I click on the loop, it plays normally. After I drag the loop into the editor window, it plays the incorrect instrument, even when guitar is selected as the instrument.


This is a bizarre bug I can't seem to get around.
