I am trying to back up my 3 banks of user voices from my Motif XS rack to computer.
I found these instructions (below) for how to do it with the editor.  Everything goes well until after the data has been transmitted to the computer. When I try to ‘go to file” and save, there is no dialogue box to enter a name and save the X1E file.

Is there something I should be doing BEFORE starting the process?

Also, can I make an .X0V file?

Thanks!

If you want the Computer to have your custom VOICES, you must do the following.

Launch the EDITOR
Go to BULK > DATA SYNC
Set the screen to “RECEIVE”
Set the options so you are set to receive “ALL” - this will include the current data plus all the USER Voice data, including any you have marked as Favorites. Executing this will send a bulk request… the EDITOR will RECEIVE your custom VOICES (and the current one program)

Once you have done this create a FILE, you do so by
Go to FILE > SAVE
This will create a .X1E file that will be back up of your USER VOICES and the current (one) program - that means if you were in MULTI mode when you created this file, the current MULTI will be stored but so to will all the USER Voices, and your Favorites List.

While I have a Motif XS and XF, I don’t have a Rack XS. However, I installed the Yamaha Editor for the Rack XS as standalone under Windows XP. Just by opening the Editor I can click on “File”, then on “Save” on the drop-down, and a dialog box opens.

Which computer platform and OS version are you using? Which version of the Editor did you install?
