Dveous Effects Management....

is there an application for a laptop that will allow me to manage Dveous Effects without having to do it on the box itself?

I want to copy files and manage them. Also would like to keep back up copies of the effects somewhere other than a floppy.

If you want to answer directly... profromdover@hotmail.com...

Steve - I think that you're right about the file system - it IS SONY who makes the folders. Brain synapse failure on my part. Good catch.

One other possibility: if you're on a Dveous MX, this box has Ethernet connectivity. You can FTP effects to the MX's hard drive, then load them into register memory from there - or save them from register memory to the HD, then FTP them to your computer for offline storage and transport. Also, as far as the files go (and I would NEVER contradict Bob), I _think_ the Dveous writes one file for the entire effect, with a .Exx extension, where xx = the register number (Sony's format is to write to a separate directory for each channel). If you're using a floppy, the files must be at the root directory - the Dveous can't access subdirectories.

I use my laptop as a back-up device for the DVEous all the time. The DVEous writes files with extensions into folders for the various channels - these can be copied from a removable floppy disk onto pretty much any computer. They will show up on your computer with the same names as what you see on the DVEous directory. I haven't personally tried to rename any of these files, but I don't see an obvious reason why you couldn't.
