Lincoln Brewster X3 Live download patch problem
by gtrvandy on 2009-03-27 20:57:42

Can anyone help? I'm having a terrible time downloading the X3 Live patches from Lincoln Brewster's website. I've tried the zip file and the RAW file. I can't get either one to work - all I get is some weird text in both formats (zip or RAW). It seems like Linoln's site may be missing some install info for these, I guess I'm just not familiar enough... pretty new to using the X3 Live. Can ayone take me through the download and install of Linoln's patches from A to Z? (I'm using an intel based Mac Book Pro with my X3 Live. I do have Stuffit Expander downloaded for use if necessary, and I am running Gearbox with all current updates.) THANK YOU TO ANYONE WHO CAN HELP!!

It think the problem is you have to add the .x3m extension to the file, you should also use GearBox for better versatility. I use Window's but here's how it worked for me...

Note: In GearBox you can load bundles or individual presets from from your harddrive and it does not actually save them to the POD until you click on Put All or Put Selected.

Download the zip file.

Open it and save the file LB-PODX3-V1 to your harddrive.

Rename the file LB-PODX3-V1.x3m

Open GearBox.

In the Hardware Memory Window click on Open Bundle.

Find the file you just saved "LB-PODX3-V1.x3m" and click open.

Now all the presets are loaded into GearBox (but not the POD).

You can double click on the presets in the Hardware Memory Window to load them into the GearBox window and audition them.

When you find a tone you want to save to the POD, click on the preset in the Hardware Memory Window the highlight it and click on Put Selected to save it to the POD.

When you are done, click on Get All in the Hardware Memory Window to reload the presets that you didn't just overwrite from the POD into GearBox.

As an alternative, what I like to do is load the bundle into GearBox, find a preset that I want to save, double click on it in the Hardware Memory Window to load it into the GearBox Window and click on the File menu, click on DualTone and then Save As, give the preset a name and save it. This will save only this one preset to my harddrive. When I've saved all the presets that I want I can either close GearBox and restart it or click on Get All in the Hardware Memory Window to reload GearBox with the memory from the POD. Now I can find a preset in the POD that I don't want to keep, double click on it to load it and then use the File/DualTone/Open command to load one of the individual presets that I just saved on the harddrive. Now you just have to use Put Selected or Put All to commit the changes to the POD.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for this post.  I had trouble loading, became frustrtated, and finally found that Monkey would load the file - only problem is that it loaded all his banks through to my X3 Live.  Now I'll have to restore my X3L presets and then follow your directions.  This will allow me to hear and play before I update the X3L.
