I've recently upgraded to the fx4. Wondered if anyone had some experience in this area?
I can't figure out how to access the sounds as I did in the f3. I can easily scroll and listen to the different sounds in the sets as well as the user programs and isolate sounds from that, but I can't easily find orchestral sounds, or drum sounds. I have the set lists for the orchestral and drums sounds, I just don't know how to get into a sound quickly. I have to first jump around in the sets or user programs to find them. I can create my own user programs like this, but its very time consuming. I can find the basic factory sounds easily as they follow the set list for each bank, but I'm thinking there must be a way to access the orchestral and drum sounds the same way?
Thanks.

At least you can make the changes live via computer connection and save the changes to the accordion in a few seconds. Having the editor on computer to make your sets is a god-send and something that every 8X user would give his eye-teeth for! :)
