Is there a very simple Backup / Restore settings instruction set? (1 reply)
I want to back up the settings of out Viscount 365 organ to prevent accidental wipeout (again) of the settings if someone accidentally pressed Reset to Factory Default, meaning the cobnsole lost all knwledge of the bass speakers etc. Despite being in IT for over 30 years I cannot find a definitive/simple set of instructions in the manual of how to back up the organ settings. There are hints in using the File Management Save functions in the manual but no straightforward instructions on how to back up to USB ALL the setting for how the organ was set up. Is there a straighforward guide ?
Hi, I think you mean a Regent 356 organ? The process is easy. Enter the file manager menu in the screen display and then enter the save sub menu. Change the file type to .all. The initial display will offer you .cmb. Using the arrow and +/- keys give the file a name date is a good idea so today for example would be 090519 and press enter to save.
.all files save every parameter of organ settings. .cmb files only save piston settings. .sty files save voice model changes so you have the facility to decide what level of information you archive for future use and reload.
Test this has worked by going to file load and see the same file mane is available to you. This process has saved the file to internal memory which should not be lost by a factory reset. If you have put a USB pen into the slot before entering the file save process you should then be saving to the pen drive. A small note on the bottom of the screen shows if the process is to internal memory or the pen memory.
The process is described briefly on page 25 of the attached manual.
