OS 1.2 Upload issue

Post by aktarus »

Hi to all,
I can't get the SP1200 to load the SP1200_OS12.hfe file.
What's weird is that it does load the SP1200_OS12_SND.hfe file.

I put the HXCSDFE.CFG and the SP1200_OS12.hfe files at the root of the FAT 32 formatted SD card.

The thing is, I would like to avoid loading up the SP1200_OS12_SND.hfe as I wish not to use the sounds installed in that OS.
I'd rather sample my own.

Cheers for your time and response !!

the SP 1200 is ALWAYS loading the whole "disk" at startup. It doesn´t care, if it´s full of sounds or empty. ALWAYS the same.

I suggest you to load up a HFE image that works . Clear memory and choose "save sounds" and "save sequences" in the Disk menue. this way excisting sounds on the diskimage will be deleted and emptyness will be left beside the OS on the image.

then rename that image in your PC/MAC to "EMTY DISK" or "STARTUP DISK" or whatever you want to name it.

then the next time you startup your SP 1200, choose that empty diskimage, what will take the same time loading like a full-of-sound-disk-image, but there won´t be any sound then in your SP and you can start working/sampling right away... :)
