I just loaded v1.94 and noticed my favorite command, "Dump Current", is missing.  At least I don't find it under the System menu as before. Did it move? Hope it's not completely gone!

I’m not able to get both programs on a 2-layer multi to play simultaneously. Please help me understand what settings I might have wrong. This has worked just fine for me in the past.

I’ve attempted to create a two-layer multitimbral patch in the following manor:
1) I loaded factory sound “ObSweep”, deactivated the last 4 voices and tweaked the sound to my taste.
2) I selected channel 2 button and activated the last 4 voices and created a second programed.
3) I activated the second layer by setting “Active” to Yes.
4) I made the sure both layers were set to full keyboard range.
5) I made sure “Source” was set to “All” (also tried “Riv” setting but made no difference) .

Now, with both layers visible and active, if I select the channel 1 button, layer 1 is highlighted, but only its program plays. Then if I select channel 2, layer 2 is highlighted, and only its program plays. Should they not both be heard together? Thanks in advance.

Discussion (English preferably) / wiki-manual?
« on: May 05, 2020, 10:38:02 PM »
What do people think about creating and maintaining a River "wiki-manual"? I'm thinking we could structure it around the existing owner's manual and embellish it where we feel it's confusing, vague or could use some examples. I found that, while the manual mostly describes things very well, there are other places where I really struggle to understand or wish there was more information.

As an example, the explanation of "Dump Current" in the manual was very limited, but through experimentation I was delighted to learn that it not only stores singles, but multis, layers and effects as well. But now I'm curious how best to use these individual SysEx files. For example, from within the librarian software, can I build user banks by dragging and dropping them into open bank slots? 

Another helpful inclusion could be brief explanations of the general function and use full techniques of various dials as related to basic analog programming. For example, the FM dial. We know Laurent does a great job offering helpful hints in many sections in the manual, but the more the merrier. I realize there's a wealth of knowledge out there on the internet, yet not specific to The River.

Laurent, I hope I'm not out of place proposing this idea. Please let us know if you have objections. What do others think about this idea? We could simply start with a Google doc.
