To do that, use utilities customized for downloading “.syx” files: Midiox (www.midiox.com), Midi Quest (http://www.squest.com), or sequencers.

Remember that when you upload the VPowerLeadsBank sound-bank into the EWI4000s, existing sounds will be overwritten. Make sure that you create backup copies of your sound-banks with the use of the EWI400s editor.

If you have any doubt in the success of the upload of the new sound-bank, you may run a test upload with the use of free DEMO and FACTORY sound-banks.
To do that, download the DEMO and FACTORY sound-banks by clicking on this links:
https://vgtrumpet.com/soundbanks/DEMOBank.zip

https://vgtrumpet.com/soundbanks/FactoryBank.zip

Follow the above-listed steps to try to upload these sound-banks into your EWI.
The only difference between these two banks is that 00, 01, and 99 patches in the DEMO sound-bank contain whole new sounds, which excel factory presets. (99: V-WooFloo, 00: V-FretlessSteps, 01: V-BasicWowLead).
If you succeeded and you can hear the difference, do not hesitate to upload the new VPowerLeadsBank sound-bank into your EWI. You will be truly astonished.
