We have quite a few x0xb0x'es on our band, and previously we have just been using plain x0xb0x'es - without any extra tricks.
I recently installed c0ntr0l to our play room's PC, and successfully backed up mate's x0xb0x pattern data. Haven't yet tried to restore that pattern data to another x0xb0x to verify that everything is there, but I'm going to try that soon.
But then I tried my own x0xb0x, and it connected just OK - but it complains "Bad pattern data received" when trying to use pattern editor from c0ntr0l, or to backup the data.
Anybody, any ideas where the problem might be?
Generally, both the x0xb0x'es tried connect just OK (in computer control mode), tempo slider moves - but mine complains about that bad pattern data.
Personally I would suspect cold soldering on the USB connector, but maybe somebody has a better idea to start with!
I'm running SokkOS 1.9.1 on my x0xb0x, and the mate's x0xb0x has Ladyada.
