How can I load user Programs/Multis into the Forte?
Forte 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 back-panel USB "Storage" port.
If wanting to load directly from your computer (*PC Virtual Drive) connect a USB cable between the Forte's USB "Computer" port and a free USB port on your computer.
*When choosing the PC Virtual Drive, a temporary removable USB drive representing the "Forte" will mount on your computer when the USB cable is connected. 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.
Once the PC Virtual Drive appears on your computer copy the desired Forte file(s) to it.
(in our example here we are using a USB Device)
|FILL: Loads Programs/Multis sequentially into EMPTY user ID slots, filling in any gaps. No existing Programs/Multis will be erased.||OVWRITE (only .FOR files): Replaces existing User bank contents.|
|In choosing FILL, objects will load starting from the specified ID#. Use the data wheel or numeric keypad to set the starting ID#. Press FILL to proceed.||If choosing OVWRITE you will be prompted to choose between either overwriting all existing user Programs/Multis currently in user memory (press YES) -or- selectively merging the Multis/Programs in the file with the current user memory (press NO-MERGE).|
(For further details, see chpt. 13 in the Forte Musician's Guide ).
