I learned on a Yamaha MM6 which is a beginner keyboard. The patches are arranged by type (bass, lead, piano etc) and it is very easy to find them.

Now I also have a Novation X-station. The patches are arranged in no particular order. This is kind of a pain as I have to go hunting for them; consequently, I only use about the first 6.

Now I just discovered how to use the X-station Librarian. It lets you download your patches from the Xstation onto the computer and rearrange them. If I had the patience I could shuffle them all around & arrange them as 'leads, bass,' etc.

But maybe that isn't the best way to arrange them? Maybe I should group them as "2 leads, 2 bass, 2 pads" etc so that I can cycle thru them more easily during a jam or performance.

If anyone else has an x-station or other synth with patches thrown any which way... how would you arrange them in the most convenient way?
