My XL-7 is actually a PX-7 in disguise. My original XL-7 mainboard exhibited a problem whereby one would get clicks in the audio out when the machine was running warm (i.e. in my studio in the heat of summer). It turned out I could get a (used) PX-7 for the same amount it would have got me to get a replacement mainboard shipped from EPR electronics, so I did that and swapped the lower half of the PX-7 with my XL-7 and put both the XL-7 and PX-7 ROMs in the unit. I now have a spare unit which can be handy if some front panel item or the power supply fails. The only downside of all this is that the XL-7 now says "PX-7" in the display upon starting up. Not a big issue. Would be easy to fix with appropriate software, apparently, but only service facilities such as EPR can do this, on-site, which would mean I'd have to ship the board to EPR and back again...
(Yes, I could have moved everything to the PX-7 instead, but I like the XL-7 front panel graphics and color scheme better, and besides, the XL-7 parameter wheel had a better feel to it, being more worn (easier to turn)).

In short, the P2K presets seem to use MidiK and MidiL which are used by the P2500 presets for something else. Searching for controller usage in the patchcords, finding available controllers, and juggling the patchcords would have to be quite involved. I am not quite ready for that challenge, but I will give it some thought as it goes in the direction of the "Parametizer" software I mentioned.

I didn't re-read that thread, but perhaps I didn't make the connection because that was about the PK-6 banks converted by Sika. (Or did we discuss the P2500 to P2K conversions, too?)
> I know I wrote (in the P2K group) about the complexities of doing more than simple substitutions using Syxer. I have indeed thought about it, but do not anticipate having the time needed. Hmmmmmmm. Maybe I could try a few simple things--testing for the presence of cords using MidiM -->MidiP and converting them. I know I wrote about that in the P2K group. I could automate a simple substitution for the FX send. Let me re-read that thread.

The "Ver4" you posted more recently did work for me, but the FX send amounts are not translated (in 12 knob machines) because they are linked to controllers N & M.
