I know I'm probably missing the obvious, but how do you load (open) the ESU sound template file? I watched Matt H.'s video on changing sound slot values using the template, but he doesn't say how you open the file.
OK, another issue. I was programming a V4.0 sound decoder and I could see the "sound" icon. I made a couple changes to function mapping, updated the decoder, and everything was OK.
Then today I open the project to make a couple minor changes and I no longer have a "sound" icon. I reset the decoder to factory defaults (CV8=8), and still no "sound" icon. I have sound OK, just no “sound”icon to load the template file. So I installed a new V4.0 sound decoder on the Lok Tester and I have a "sound" icon. So, something with the original decoder must be blitz'd.
So I'm at a loss, any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Bob

Using the Lokprogrammer, when you are done making changes, you need to SAVE the file to your computer. When you want to make changes at a later date, you need to open that file from your computer and carry on.
I don't think anything is wrong with the original decoder. That information is not stored in the decoder, it is part of the file itself.
The Scale Trains file is kind of a hybrid file - a cross between a V4.0 and a Select. While it IS a V4.0 decoder, like Select decoders, the file is preloaded with 16 different horns that you select using CV48 .... like a Select. A V4.0 decoder is used in order to attain up to 12 function outputs, which a Select cannot do. So, the function outputs use the same architecture of the V4.0, but the same sound architecture of a Select.
I'm not 100% positive, but I'm thinking you probably shouldn't be able to access the sound schedule with that file because of that configuration. It's probably a glitch that you initially could for some reason, and when you transferred the horn from the library, the re-write only acknowledges that single sound and doesn't write the rest. (?)
Is the horn you want not available in the 16 pre-loaded horns ?
Mark, thanks for the detailed explanation. No, the horn I want is the Leslie RS3-LR.
I had sent an email to Matt H. @ ESU last week but got no response. I guess I either go with a horn in the base file OR go with another file and lose some of the functions that may be “eye-candy” like class light colors.
