I have a Roland A-50 Controller and I can make program changes in the Preset Performance Mode but when I edit the program and save it I can't get the program to change I the Live Set mode. Is there a way to make the Preset Performance Mode to be User Perfomance mode? Thanks Barry

There's no preset Performance mode. There's no user mode. MODX is always ready to switch its current Performance to a user, preset, or library Performance either directly through Performance-targeting MSB/LSB/PC combinations or indirectly using Live Set MSB/LSB/PC combinations.

If you can find a way to make the A-50 send MSB and LSB MIDI messages (CC) - then you can make this work for you. Alternatively, you could put something between (like a computer) which "sniffs" for a PC and then sends some MSB/LSB pair for you. Probably best using this method to target User Performances directly so you get a full 128 Performances to target by sending just a PC.

There's also MIDI boxes that can do this (something from MIDI solutions) or other places. This is assuming your A50 cannot send MSB/LSB - there are ways to supplement using more equipment.
