Cubase is capable of doing it with the studio module or Galalxy librarian. Get or receive the dump of settings particualarly the trigger settings. You can use a generic librarian and do a bulk dump or preferably a librarian or editor designed specifically for DM4. I recently had trouble and had no librarian so I found one on the web that created a .sys file that is stored. The shareware program is called audionaut? Any way it only works for free 30 times or so but you can use it to store the settings and send them to the device. The process requires two midi cables and the device set to MIDI thru -I think.
