Hi all,

 

I had noticed a problem with GarageBand 10.0.1 running on my Mac Mini with Mavericks 10.9.1.

 

When I changed some smart control settings on a given track (e.g. specifically, changing the reverb setting in the "compressed vocal" patch), then switch to another track, it would not "stick", rather would change back to however it was before. Other tracks would keep the same setting changed no problem.

 

After some trial and error, I have tracked the issue to being specific to tracks that were created via "New Track With Duplicate Settings" option. It also doesn't seem to apply to all settings - some stick, some don't. I have logged it as a bug via Apple Feedback, but thought I'd share my work around here, since I couldn't find anything on the internet.

 

My work around is simply to switch to a different patch, then back to the desired patch. The downside is that the smart control settings will be reset to the patch defaults, rather than being the same as the source track (rendering the "New Track With Duplicate Settings" option pretty redundant in my view).

 

I hope that helps someone else! Does anyone have a better work around?

 

James
