Feature request: Upload only changed presets from HD500x Edit

Recommended Posts

Procedure:

- Edit one or more presets in HD500x Edit.

- Press "SET LIST" or "ALL" under the "SEND" header.

 

Result:

=> Sending (uploading) to the HD500x takes the same amount of time regardless of the number of presets changed.

 

Workaround:

- Mark only the changed presets.

- Press "SELECTED" instead of "SET LIST" under the "SEND" header.

 

Suggested feature:

- Sending (uploading) "SET LIST" or "ALL" should only upload the changed presets.

- HD500x Edit already knows which presets are changed. Those are marked with yellow, italic and an asterisk.

- Preferably, this should also go for downloading from the Pod.

...- HD500x Edit already knows which presets are changed. Those are marked with yellow, italic and an asterisk...

 

true if synchronization is perfect.

false if POD+PUTER r out-of-synch...

 

this is a common situtaion 'n cld happen if u:

1. initialize hd edit off-line (ie pod not connected),

2. tweak presets,

3. connect pod,

4. answer no in the prompt "a pod is connected. Do u want 2 load presets? Answering yes will overwrite all unsaved info"...

I see the challenge.

 

Maybe it's possible to have timestamps to check sync before up- and downloading, and then transfer only the changed presets. That is, if it's possible to create a fast timestamp check.

"IT-wise" everything is possible.

but u always have 2 consider the cost-benefit analysis...

in this case the benefit wld be some (milli)seconds faster synch-time...

 

ps

timestamps wld not solve the "unsynchronized case" (how do u verify clock-synch btween 2 diff devices?)

one way wld b 2 use seperate buffers in order to check if the stored preset is exactly the same with the hd edit preset.  in this case a check-digit algorithm might be helpful. but again the benefit shld b minimal, even negative (cause u wld probably need more time comparing than exchanging the whole setlist/bundle), so is it worth implementing?
