How do I send templates to/from my X-Station from/to my computer?

To upload a template to the X-Station follow these steps:

1. Connect the X-Station to your computer and turn it on, then open the Editor.

2. If the 'Welcome' dialog appears select 'Nothing thanks!' and click 'OK'.

3. Choose 'Select MIDI input/output device...' from the 'Devices' menu and make sure the X-Station is selected as the input and output device, then click 'OK'.

4. Choose 'Open...' from the 'File' menu and select the template you want to load into the X-Station, then click 'Open'.

5. Make sure the X-Station is in template mode and not synth mode. Then press the 'global' button to enter the global menu and scroll to the 'Mem Protect' page. Set this to 'Off' and press 'write' to save the setting, then press 'play/synth' to return to play mode.
