It is possible to open the original file and the edited one and try
to paste the starting measures.
Within Cakewalk, you can't actually delete the invisible setup
measure per se. That is set up in other windows, not in the track
window. Initial sysex is set in the sysex window (for auto-send
banks), initial patch and bank, volume, and pan, in the track info
But if there are initial controllers for a track which were present
before the notes, then if you want them, you'll have to restore them.
Ordinarily, you can always edit the file and put whatever you want
in. But let's say that there was a tuning RPN or pitch bend range
command, envelope NRPNs, and such, which strongly affect the sound.
Removing them can make the track sound odd, and for pitch bend or
tuning, make it play out of tune.
But that is rather obvious when you play it. If a track doesn't
sound right compared to the original, you'll want to try to restore
those parts, or at least look at what was there to see if you can put
