[sdiy] JP6 doesn't write presets. CR2032 over CR1/3N - OK?

Just for the record , the correct "reset" procedure for dead battery scenario would be:

1. Replace battery
2. power on and switch of the Patch switch
3. Move any switch on/off any tweakable sound parameter
4. Once done, save the sound to location A-1 and than copy it from there to all 48 location.

I haven't reset the patch banks yet but I assume that the same way you will have to turn on/off any switch in the Patch section (the bottom line of switches), save and copy to all 32 Patch locations...
