Customer Question
I have two roland xv5050...
I have two roland xv5050 modules. One in my home studio and one in a rack that I use to play out. I have some revised patches in my studio that I need to get loaded into my rack. I downloaded XV-Librarian and connected to my studio module. I selected the patches that I want to add/replace in my rack module and did an Export SMF as a new file with the new name. I then rolled in my rack and connected the librarian to it expecting to be able to select WHERE the new patch was loaded. It seems to load it into the orig location.
To be clear, I need to re-arrange where the patches are located. Is there a way around this?

Hello I am wondering if you can't dump the information directly from one unit to the other without using librarian. I don't know if you have the owners manual. So I am sending the information in that area. If you have no luck with that it is possible to contact Roland direct. (800)(###) ###-####/strong>. They have people there that are more familiar with software and what will and will not work on there units.

I hope this has helped and if you have any additional problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the page, then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Saving Edits to the XV-5050's

Internal Memory (WRITE)

If you turn the power off or select another Patch, Rhythm Set, or

Performance after you have modified a Patch, Rhythm Set or

Performance, the changes you have made will be lost. If you wish to

preserve the data, store it into the XV-5050's USER memory.

Internal Write Protect

The Internal Write Protect setting is provided to help prevent

the accidental overwriting of data in the USER memory. When

saving new data to the USER memory, you must turn off

Internal Write Protect. If you attempt to write data when it is

on, the following display will appear.

fig.05-01

Change the displayed ON to OFF and press [ENTER] to turn

Internal Write Protect off. Press [ENTER] once again, and the

data will be written into the USER memory.

Once you disable Internal Write Protect, it will remain disabled

until the XV-5050's power is turned off.

Saving a Patch (PATCH WRITE)

1. Make sure that the Patch you wish to save is selected.

2. Press [UTILITY] to make its indicator light.

3. Press [

CURSOR] a few times to move the cursor to the

upper left of the display.

4. Turn [VALUE] to select "WRITE PATCH."

5. Press [CURSOR

] to move the cursor to the lower right of

the display.

6. Turn [VALUE] to select the number of the memory location

in which you wish to save the Patch (USER area).

7. Press [ENTER] to save the Patch.

* To cancel the procedure, press [EXIT].

8. Press [EXIT] to return to the PATCH PLAY screen.

By holding down [SHIFT] and pressing [UTILITY], you can

the Patch/Rhythm Set, and then attempt to save the Performance,

tho following message appears in the display.

When you press [ENTER], the settings of the Performance alone are

saved; changes in the settings of Patches/Rhythm Sets will not be

saved. If you do want to save the settings of Patches/Rhythm Sets,

press [EXIT], save the Patch or Rhythm Set with its changed settings

first, and then save the Performance.

Initializing a Sound (INIT)

This feature resets all of the parameters in the current Patch,

Performance, Rhythm Set or Rhythm Tone to their standard or

factory default settings (INITIALIZE).

* When you play a Patch, Performance, Rhythm Set or Rhythm Tone,

you're actually playing it from the XV-5050's Temporary memory —

the Patch, Performance, Rhythm Set or Rhythm Tone is instantly

copied into the Temporary memory when you select it. During

initialization, only the copy is affected, not the version saved in

memory. If you wish to restore all of the XV-5050's settings to their

factory values, perform a Factory Reset. (p. 15)

1. Select the Performance, Patch or Rhythm Set you wish to

initialize.

I am afraid you do not understand my issue. Since I have modified patches on both units I obviously know how to do all the things you have suggested. For example, there are separate patches modified on Both units that Reside in different locations. I merely want to rearrange the slot within memory where they reside. I know I can go thru all that tedious knob turning, save as, etc etc and probably do this but I specifically asked how to do this with the Roland XV Editor as that would be considerably easier. I was under the assumption that I WAS ASKING ROLAND as is shown on the Just Answer website. Since you are not a Roland technician( as you have referred me to Roland) I respectfully ***** ***** question NOT answered to my satisfaction and ask that my PayPal payment be refunded!
Electronic Musical Instrument Expert: Ron Winston, Owner of Winston Electronics, Servicing music electronics for over 50 years replied 1 year ago

Just a little FYI. I am a roland technician and have been a roland service center for over 20 years. The problem is each of these units operate differently and use programs differently. Since we service about 80 different brands we are not working with all the variations from each company and each product. That is why when we get a request like yours we work with the owners manual and when that doesn't work we refer to the roland support line. They work with only the roland products. I'm sorry I could not be of any help so I would contact the roland factory tech support They will either tell you how to do it. Or it can't be done.
