How to Organize Setup Favorites

How can I organize my favorite Setup selections?


There are a few ways to corral ones favorite Setups.

Choosing Setup Favorites

Much like car radio station presets, the SP5 lets you store a favorite Setup to each of the 20 Instrument Category buttons (Piano - Misc).

  1. While in Setup Mode, choose the a Setup you wish to set as a favorite.
  2. Press and hold a given Category button for a few seconds to capture the current Setup to that button location. You will see the following pop-up message in the display confirming it was set as the Category favorite:
  3. Setup Xpose:0       
    Favorite saved
  4. To later recall the selected Setup, simply press the corresponding Category button (be sure KEYPAD is off).

Creating a Sequential List of Favorite Setups

(starting in Setup mode)

  1. Using whatever selection method you like choose the first Setup you wish to copy to the User Setup bank.
  2. Press SAVE.
  3. On screen the SP5 will suggest the first empty User location (ID) it finds to save "to" (the range of available User IDs is 1024-1087). "SetupName" will be the name of the Setup you are copying (saving).
  4. Save Setup over: 1/2
    1024 "SetupName"

    You can accept the suggestion OR manually type in, or scroll to, any ID # from 1024-1087 you prefer. If you choose to type things in, you need to commit things by pressing ENTER (scrolling on the other hand requires no pressing of Enter).

  5. Press SAVE again to finalize your choice.
  6. Setup Xpose:0       

    Note: the asterisk (*) is an additional visual cue that this is a USER-saved object.

  7. Go back to step 1 and repeat as many times as needed - up to 64 entries max (manual ref. pg. 7-8)

To navigate your favorites later, in Setup mode simply press USER (aka the "TUV" button) and this will force the display to ONLY show your saved USER bank contents. From there grab the data wheel or use the +/- buttons to move forwards/backwards through the list. One nice feature here is the system will only show you occupied ID entries. In other words let's say you save a few items that number 1024, 1025, 1027. Notice 1026 is missing. When you scroll this list 1026 is automatically skipped as it is empty.


-Borrowing on the fact that unoccupied User ID's are skipped when scrolling, consider leaving a few blank spaces in between selections in your User list. Inevitably you will need to make changes to this list at some point. By leaving a few purposeful 'blanks' it makes it easier later to insert a few new selections in between existing ones.

-If you ever need to Delete a User Setup you can either:
a) just save a new selection to that same ID. The old one will get replaced.
b) alternatively, if you just want to erase the location, select it, press KEYPAD, then press DELETE, then Next/+ (manual ref. pg. 7-10).

-If you ever want to Rename a User Setup - select the Setup in question, press SAVE, then press the Chan/Param UP arrow button. You will see the "Rename Setup" screen where you can then use the alphanumeric keypad entry to type in a new name. Press Save again to commit (manual ref. pg. 7-9).
