2 questions: 1) On the DX if I store a sound to another position does it overwrite the sound in that position or do the sounds swap positions? 2) I was wondering how to organise your sounds for a live gig? I've made them all over the place and don't know how to organise them in order?

1: The original sound is overwritten, but not lost. If you ever need the original sound again it can be reset to factory settings.

2: Have you tried making an acccount and connecting to Soundmondo? The website allows creating, storing, sharing and organising your patches in the Soundmondo cloud.
Using the iPhone/iPad soundmondo app can be useful too. (I wouldn't know. I don't own an iPhone/iPad).

Another methode is saving and organising all your patches offline on your computer using System Exclusive data. (*.syx files). Then for each gig you load the patches you need to the Reface DX memory locations you want. It's a bad limitation in the Reface DX design that you have to load patches one by one. Most synths, including Yamaha ones, have the ability to save and load the complete content of your synth from/to one single SysEx dump file. To handle SysEx data on your computer (Windows, Mac, or Linux) I have created an Editor/Librarian for Ctrlr. You can find the editor and a link to the required Ctrlr program on my website

Please see the following “Easter Egg” that lets you store 32 of your own refaceDX Programs and allows you to recall the Factory Performance in each “overwritten” location whenever you wish - WITHOUT resetting the refaceDX to Factory settings.

2) I was wondering how to organise your sounds for a live gig? I've made them all over the place and don't know how to organise them in order?

If you have an iOS device (iPhone or iPad) you can create Set Lists, each Set has an icon that represents one of your Voices. They are like small chicklet icons that you can drag and drop in place (making reordering sets as easy as pie). The Soundmondo App can be used offline making it a perfect place to store, and order your sounds into convenient listings.

Thanks for your additional explanation about the "Voice Recall" function. I forgot to mention that.
It's not an Easter Egg though: it's a documented feature that can be found in the manual.
