Sysex Backup of Roland MVS1

I'm trying to backup all the presets from a Roland MVS-1 the module version of Roland's SR-JV80-04 vintage keys. This is a primitive module apparently the only way to do a bulk dump is from the front panel. Is there another way using midi-ox to transfer all 255 presets? it communicates on device ID channel, I don't know where to begin with midi-ox.
Any help very very much appreciated.
thank you

First set up your windows.
For me the minimum windows are Output Monitor (should be already displayed) , View / Input Monitor.. and the View / Port Routing.. (Note that the Routing window already has at least MIID-OX Event Port on the bottom left)
 
Next you need to setup any Midi Ins and Outs you want to see. Options/ Midi Devices..
Select the Ins and Outs for as many of interfaces/keyboard/devices that you want to use and click OK
This will add pictures of MIDI sockets in the Port Routing window. The inputs are on the left and outputs on the right.
 
Any Midi data coming in these In ports will be displayed in the Input Monitor. (Right click in the Monitors window for options like 'Clear', 'Display Hex' or 'Display Decimal' etc.)
 
 
Setup sysex saving:  
View / SysEx.. for a new System Exclusive dialog window.
In the menu on this dialog select Sysex / Configure
On the bottom of this configure dialog make sure the option "Save Dump directly to file" is selected and then press OK
 
 
OK now for Saving and Loading from your MVS-1
 
Saving:  
If it is not already there... View / SysEx.. for a new System Exclusive dialog window.
Select Sysex / Receive Manual Dump and a "File Save " window will appear for you to select the directory and file name for the Sysex you are about to receive in MidiOx.
 
After you press OK on the Save dialog a small window with a "byte received" label and OK will pop up and wait for you to send the sysex from the MSV-1.  All ports are checked for sysex so there is need to select a Midi In.
 
When it is done ( the number stops going up) press OK and you are finished the Save.
 
Loading back to the MVS-1
Output from MidiOx comes out the Midi-Ox Event Port so you need to connect that port (bottom left of the MIDI Port Routing Window) to the port on the right that your MVS-1 Midi in is connected to.
Drag the DIN socket of the Midi-Ox Event Port to the right DIN picture of that out port to make the connection.
 
To pass Sysex you always have to have SYX selected in the tool bar at the bottom of the MidiOx program window.
There is a slight bug in MidiOx and it is always safer, if it is already selected, to deselect and select it again after changes on the  Midi Port Routings window.
 
If it is not already there... View / SysEx.. for a new System Exclusive dialog window.
In this dialog File / Send Sysex and select the MVS-1 sysex file you have saved, click OK and it should be sent to the MVS-1.
 
 
As for 'device ID', this is written into the sysex data that the MVS-1 sends to MidiOx and so it is saved.
If you change the ID (or if it isn't Factory standard and you reset to Factory settings) the files won't match and so when they are sent, the synth won't accept the data.
 
So unless you have more than 1 of these synths I suggest you never change what it is at the moment or set the ID to 7FH which means 'all units', before you save a sysex file.
see page 15 of the manual.
 
"Is there another way using midi-ox to transfer all 255 presets?" There is, but this is by far the easiest way.
 
Feel free to post again if you get into trouble.
 
All the best
Royce
