I am ecstatic over the ease in using the mag pickups and accessing the qualities of the individual guitar!  It makes such a difference in this regard over the 99 - which is recalcitrant at best.

Lot's of tonal variety that is easy to access and mix with the hex.  This alone makes the GP10 a pure pleasure...

My feelings as well.  I feel like the Roland engineers really did a good job of making the GP10 fun and intuitive to use from a real world gigging guitarist point of view, which has not always been Roland's forte with the VG/GR line IMHO. Having alternate tunings, the ability to convert to a twelve string, or alternate between acoustic and electric tones at the press of a foot switch is fantastic.  No kidding about the COSM Strat sounding better than the actual pickups in the GC1...

The problem with 2 x GR-55's is the drivers, the one instance of a driver can't exist for both GR-55's (if you follow that).
What you need to do is have both GR-55's USB plugged at the same time and see which midi device driver name is associated with which GR-55.
(probably be GR-55_1 and GR-55_2). And label each GR-55 as to with midi driver name to use.
When selecting the USB/midi device in the editor or Librarian, you need to choose carefully which one is used with which GR-55.
You can run 2 instances of the editor program, one for each GR-55 at the same time,
do the backup with one, then open the bulk file with the other instance of the program and load up.

The issue with the editor is at start up it will either reload the midi device that was used last session, or look up a list of midi devices and choose the first item that says "GR-55".
I recommend making a copy of the editor in another place and use one copy for each GR-55, they can both share the same patch file folders.

Be sure you updated the GR-55 Firmware to latest Rev 1.50.

Problems as you describe can occur when GR-55 has older firmware.

Try to save your old patches and do a GR-55 Factory Reset.

I've been having serious issues not being able to "load bulk patch file to GR55".  After it gets to the end of loading all of them, whether 50 or 5 presets, the Editor crashes.  It does looks like that it gets all the way through, hangs up a second and then says 'program stopped working' and I have to close it (Win 7).  When I go back to listen to the ones I just loaded many of the CTL functions I have assigned to the CTL pedal are missing or altered. Example: one preset I use simply activates PCM1. I had no problems before I went from XP to Win7.  We use two GR55s and have the same sequence according to the setlist, i.e. song 1 is preset 1, song 2 preset 2, etc.  So after I load all the presets in set order, I save them to a bulk file.  I then power down, shut down Editor, plug in #2 GR55 and go to load that bulk file into it.  It crashes.  Copying preset #3 to #2 for example on the main Editor screen works with no problem.  We have all our most-used presets from bank 51 on up, so instead of copying them one by one up to bank 1 in order so many times, I just do it once and save it as a bulk.  I don't know what else to do except a factory reset on both our GR55s but I'm afraid I won't be able to get anything back at all.  Even librarian is the same.  I'm wondering if there's a rogue preset throwing it off? A problem with the g5l file when it's created?

Here's the steps I've taken, can anybody help that has had the same issue -

1) Uninstalled/Reinstalled Editor version # 20131103 which seems to be the most current (if I had an older version I would go back and try that)
2) Old PC was XP, so I downloaded the Win7 drivers and followed exactly as it suggested in the setup on this site.
3) Firmware upgraded to newest in both units.
4) Editor and Librarian see both units fine, they transmit and copy/paste.
5) even tried MIDISport Uno instead of USB
6) not using external USB card, using the USB 2 built-in to the laptop.

went back to an old XP laptop, did all the same and same results.  I'm thinking it has to be the unit(s)?

I just tried on the same GR55, to save Bank 60 1,2,3 to a bulk file...then load that bulk file to Bank 1 1,2,3 and one of the presets is practically muted yet all of the Editor functions appear identical when I try to see what has changed..

I've tried to search "floorboard editor crashing" or "bulk file won't load" etc. but didn't come up with anything.

Does any of this sound familiar to anyone?

Thank you.

1) Have you ever used receiver through USB hub or USB extension cable?
Yes  - - Always works here using POWERED USB HUB on my ipad !
(details here)
Use Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 + Fishman Tripleplay with iPad on Battery Power
http://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?topic=10323.0

And on my 2012 Macbook Pro Retina  I use this Powered USB3.0  Hub
Anker® AH231 USB Hub with 9 USB 3.0 Data Ports + 1 Smart Charging Port (5V / 2.1A)with 12V 5A Power Adapter [VIA VL812-B2 Chipset and updated Firmware 9081]

Or I plug  FTP Receiver directly to USB Port on left side of Macbook, or direct to Apple USB Camera connection kit on iPad

2) Were your controller and receiver always visible to each other during your gigs (no obstacles between them)? Obstacle = even a simple turning around with a guitar so the controller has your body as an obstacle.


FTP Controller and USB Receiver never go more than 12 feet away from each other - and only thing blocking a direct line of sight view would be my 6 foot tall body.

3) Was there highly wireless polluted places you played? I mean like different wireless mics turned ON very close to you.

Yes - typical UHF Wireless mics in use on stage - never have wireless RF connection problems or drop outs  with my Fishman Tripleplay

Ok I need to find what causes the problem. Is it my computer, my usb ports or just my FTP itself.

Jeg har fått min GP-10 og er meget fornøyd.
Koser meg foreløpig med fabrikklydene som jeg syns er ganske gode og inspirerende.

The LED on the receiver is blinking at its fastest rate (like it is looking for the controller) and I can still trigger play and trigger all the notes just like the LED is solid?

I own two FTPs and I NEVER see all the issues with flashing LEDS on FTP USB Receiver and disconnect issues you are experiencing Albtertas!

On my FTP's, they arrived March / April 2013 - I did the "Pair" procedure once back in Spring 2013, and today they run rock solid on MacBook or ipad (and sluggishly  with MUCH higher latency on my Win7 Lenovo W520) - but my FTP USB Receiver always glows steady. Only time I see flashing LED on Receiver is when I have not turned on the FTP controller yet, or when I'm applying an FTP  Firmware update.
