I recently purchased a GR-1 and have been loving it. The synthesis side is great but I haven't been enjoying the file system regarding saving/naming/renaming/organising folders etc.
What's the best practice for naming samples/patches/performances? I noticed some of the stock samples have number prefixing the name. Is this recommended?
The other thing I'm finding confusing is the folder hierarchy especially with performances as it creates a mass of folders. Is that one for each sample/preset within that performance?
And lastly, I've been creating multitimbral patches and would like to clone/copy to create more multitimbral patches using the same collection of samples within the performance and then I can do a 'quick save' of the multitimbral patch once cloned. What's the best practice to do this? When I try and copy I get the error message of "Paste preset to entire performance. This overwrites all presets. It doesn't save to disk. Are you sure?..."
I also created a Performances folder on my USB to save my different performances but it overwrote what was in there with it's 50 folders when I tried to save in it. Do I have to have Performances 01, Performances 02, etc??
Is there any way to directly connect the GR-1 to the computer to rename and transfer files etc?
I understand what's saved between sample, patch and performance.
Apart from the file system which I've wasted so much time just trying to save stuff over and over, I've been really enjoying this synth. Will be using it at a gig after only having it for 4 days even.
