I feel I’m quickly becoming one of those newbies -
the kind who’s always asking silly questions…

Honest, I spent over 30 minutes researching: 
I know because the keyboard powered down.  ;)

I edited a voice in voice mode and wanted to store it.  I saw that every slot in the user banks is already occupied. 

If I overwrite one of these entries, is it gone forever?

I’m curious if a sort of “permanently installed” USB thumb-drive will help me in any meaningful way here.  Will it give me another bank of empty slots? 

Humble Thanks,

That’s OK, everyone gets a probationary period.  ;-)

You could prevent that shutdown, if you wanted to.  :-)

When new or after a factory reset, MOXF User Voice locations just hold copies of Voices from the Preset banks. So there’s no loss of anything that isn’t still there, and a factory reset will bring it all back, anyway.

Although you didn’t ask…
Since there are no Preset banks for factory Performances, it’s a different situation with them. Any you overwrite are not located elsewhere, but a factory reset will get those back as well.

You certainly could save an “All” or “All Voice” file to a USB drive. From either of those file types it’s possible to load back to the MOXF all the User Voice banks, a single bank, or even a single Voice.

By the way, you can store up to 16 Mixing Voices per Song/Pattern - a total of 256 possible - in the MOXF.

I had the feeling that was the case (all of the above), but this wasn’t explicit in the relevant manual sections.  That I encountered, that is. 

As I’m getting familiar with its operation, any subtle buyer’s remorse is quickly evaporating.  And I’m only poking around in voice mode so far. 

I ordered myself a full-range pedal following our prior conversation.  And this old on/off can help me do something different!  Looking forward to some added control. 

Thank you so much for elaborating and being so generous with your time! 
I’ll attempt to avoid abusing the privilege.  ;)

You’re welcome - I’m glad to help when I can.

Thanks, although you’d be in the minority.  ;-)
