    Why are GB Loops named "crystal pad.esi" and what instrument/kit is that?
    When I drag an Apple Midi (green) loop e.g. Funky Pop Drum 10, into empty space, and thus automatically create a track, it names the track "Crystal Pad.esi". The name changes if I select an alternative sound for the track. I can never get "Crystal Pad.esi" back again, and there is no sound labelled as such in my sound library. Does anyone know why this is, and more importantly, what kit it is actually using by default? Thanks in advance, R

    Hi R - Apparently this is an old bug resurfaced (there are posts on it going back 8 years!) -- I got the same thing when I tried it. It doesn't seem to interfere with using the drum loop, so I'd just rename the Track with the name of the Loop, or whatever name you prefer, and don't worry about it.

    Hi Joe, Thank you. I have seen old posts. And I'm not going to lose sleep. I have, in most cases, renamed the track once I picked another kit. In some however, I've actually liked the "Crystal Pad" kit, once I've mucked with the midi notes. The challenge is, once you change the instrument, you can't change it back, because there is no such instrument. If all we've got is "it's a bug", so be it. But if anyone knows the equivalent actual preset, that'd be cool.... R

    Found it! In the Library go to Legacy > GarageBand > Drum Kits > Pop Kit. That's the kit for the "Funky Pop Drum 10" loop..

    You did! Thank you, detective. I also learned something else: I thought all loops called “Crystal Pad” were using the same instrument, but no. Doh. R
