  • Hell Rick,

    Thanks for posting. To upload a saved or backed up settings to the SR18, you should follow the directions below.

    Sending:
    1. Begin by disconnecting any other USB MIDI, or USB Audio devices which are
    connected to your computer.
    2. Connect the MIDI IN port of your SR18 to the MIDI OUT port of your USB/MIDI
    interface with the 5-pin MIDI cable.
    3. Power on the SR18 while holding the SAVE/COPY button down. Display screen
    will read RESTORE MIDI.
    4. Exit any applications on your computer which might use MIDI.
    5. Now connect the USB/MIDI interface to your computer with the USB cable.
    6. Open System Exclusive transfer software.

    * Windows: C6 SysEx Manager - http://www.elektron.se/sites/default/...

    7. Select Configure / Destination and make sure the interface (“name of
    device”/USB Audio Device) is selected as an Input Device.
    8. Open .syx file containing your previously saved settings
    9. Press Send / Play button
    10. Once the transfer is complete, restart your SR18.

    Try this out and let me know how it goes.

  • It did not work but this issue is resolved strangely. I swapped out the HOSA cable with a Yamaha UX16. Still nothing. Same old response ( or should I say lack of). So I tried another small test midi dump. I did this with the HOSA and it failed but thought I would try the UX16. And again tried to restore. This time the test file created through the UX16 worked. Now you have to remember that this is the first time I've tried to dump/ restore the Sr18. No where any where does it tell you that the SR18 will display a counting of the lines of data as it receives it and then go into clean up mode. All this time when I tried to restore, the SR18 message said " restore midi" and did not change. So now that I see what's suppose to happen, I went back to my original file and tried to restore, nothing happened. So a Corrupted file...... Crap.........Now I know enough about communication protocols to know that the beginning of a string has to have a start command (header) to tell the other end here I come. I also noticed that the 1st line of both files (test and original) was shorter so, thanks to the BOME program and the midi out window, I copied the 1st line of the test file and overlaid it in place of the 1st line of the original file and Bingo....the restore worked......
