Update 110203: The mystery remains as to what happened, but somehow my XV5080 became internally locked to only outputting the GM patches … despite what the LCD said. Since I’d just installed C6 when I noticed this, I attributed the problem to the patch script. Once I realized that all software programs and even direct midi input resulted in the same behavior … only GM patches playing … I called Roland for support. (I really, really like their lifetime, no questions asked, talk to a real human being support!)
They didn’t have a clue either … but suggested a factory reset. Bingo! Alles klar, Herr Kommisar.
I copied the midi device script I used flawlessly in C5 into the ‘unused’ folder in the Scripts folder and installed the midi device for my Roland XV5080.
C6 read it and showed me the device under output devices with all the proper patches. I know there is a known glitch with lack of display of the patch library/ patch name in the inspector … but a click opened the device.
However, the only patches it would change were the GM patches … no matter what bank they were actually in. No other patches changed on the unit. A midi message was sent, since I could see it flash, but it always stayed on the last selected GM patch … and only on GM1 Piano unless I sent another GM patch message.
Can someone confirm whether they are having issues with midi devices addressing patches, please?
FWIW … there was no apparent issue on softsynths. I instantiated Sylenth and all patches were immediately read and I was able to select them from the inspector.
