Saving banks. Overwriting.

Post by kevin » Mon Feb 22, 2016 12:41 am

It appears under certain circumstances the HFE banks get overwritten when you SAVEALL on the EMAX. Im still experimenting to sort the conditions.


For example:

The emax has 100 presets. Load a HFE.

01 Drums
02 Juno
03 Streets

Load 01 Drums to 99 and rename Drums99
Load 02 Juno to 20 and rename Juno20

Now SAVEALL. Erase memory.

Load HFE

01 Drums
02 Juno
03 Streets
20 Juno20
99 Drums99


Load 20 Juno20 to 06 and rename Juno06

SAVEALL. Erasememory.

Load HFE

06 Juno06


They are all gone. I must be missing something.

Here is my recommendations for the Emax :

- The Switch setting is ID0-A (1) to ON, all others to off.

- I recommend to update the firmware :

Basically to update the firmware, you have just to copy the update file (upd) to an empty fat32 sdcard, insert into the drive, press 2 buttons and switch-on the drive. More details into the readme file.
(Current version : V1.8.6.15a)

- I strongly recommend the usage of fast SD Card for the writing.
Unfortunately the Sandisk Ultra is not so good and introduce some write latencies.
The emax OS seems to be quite sensitive with write latencies.

The Sandisk Extreme series is quite good, go for it. I tried the 16GB version.
This is the one on the first page picture :

I think its sorted. Likely my misunderstanding of the EMAX. Thanks for your help!
