Hi Phil,

normally, if you switch on the Genos, connect the USB stick and leave it alone for about an hour, the Genos should have updated the internal search index. (You cannot do this manually.)

The more files are on a USB stick, the longer it takes time to update the search index. Therefore, I do not recommend to have "everything" on the "main" USB stick, but only the really needed files. If someone has e.g. "hundreds of thousands" of Styles on a USB stick, it is no wonder if the internal search function is overwhelmed.

To manage Styles or MIDI files, there is the Windows program "PSR Style Database / PSR Midi Database" by Peter Wierzba. This allows you to easily manage "hundreds of thousands" of Styles / MIDI files on the PC if necessary. In this way you have all the important Style / MIDI file parameters quickly in view, can find file duplicates (and delete if necessary) and much more:

Best regards,
Chris

Everyone always said: "This is not possible!" - Then someone came and ... just did it!

You need to let the search index update. Turn on your keyboard, insert your USB, then leave it alone until the index updates (could take up to an hour).

You will know the index has updated when you do a search, and it says "index updated x minutes ago".

Cheers,
Fred
