Push song part changes to Rackspace – This command overwrites a stored variation with any changes made to widgets and then stored to a song part using the Capture Variation Edits button. After changes have been written back to the original variation, the red indicator next to the button goes out, and the Compare and Revert buttons disappear.


TIP: If you edit values on the fly and like the changes, this is how you save those changes. If you want to keep the original variation as well, make a duplicate of it before clicking the Capture Variation Edits button.
