How can I load user Programs/Multis into the Forte SE?
Forte SE compatible files can be loaded from either a USB flash/thumb drive or directly from a computer via USB cable connection.
If wanting to load from a USB flash/thumb drive (USB Device) plug a flash/thumb drive (containing the desired file) into the Forte SE back-panel USB "Storage" port.
If wanting to load directly from your computer (PC Virtual Drive) connect a USB cable between the Forte SE's USB "Computer" port and a free USB port on your computer. At step 5 below you will be prompted to copy the desired file to the PC Virtual Drive.
If choosing the "PC Virtual Drive" method a temporary removable USB drive representing the "Forte SE" will now mount on your computer (if you are using a Windows based PC you may also see a message indicating 'device drivers' are being installed. This is normal and only happens the first time you use this connection.)
(in our example here we are using a USB Device)
If loading via the "PC Virtual Drive" method you will be prompted at this step to "copy the file into the virtual drive":
On your computer copy the desired file to the temporary removable USB drive representing the "Forte SE". When the file is completed copying press [OK ] and follow the on screen prompts.
|FILL: Loads Programs/Multis sequentially into EMPTY user ID slots, filling in any gaps. No existing Programs/Multis will be erased.||OVWRTE: First deletes all USER Programs/Multis present in memory then loads the Programs/Multis from the file in the same order in which it was originally saved.|
If choosing OVWRITE you will be prompted to confirm your choice to erase all User Programs/Multis currently residing in memory. Press YES to proceed.
(For further details, see chpt. 12 in the Forte SE Musician's Guide ).
