SAVING THE HISTORY OF DIFFERENT SETTING SETS IN GENIE2
I like to save the settings sets for various experiments with my OPNs, so that can always go back to them, but there is no File/Save As feature—no built-in way to save the previous state of the aids or a snapshot of a session once you start that session. However there is a simple work-around that I’d like to share, and this work-around simply involves copying a client and renaming it appropriately before connecting to the aids.
As DIYers, most will have only one real client, ourselves, but we can use Genie2’s database of clients to hold many different setting sets for that same client. Assuming you already have one client entered, copy it via the exporting and then importing processes found as drop down choices in the top horizontal menu choice Genie. That’s Genie/Export Selected Client Files. Give it the temporary file a name (or accept the default “SelectedClients.nhax”). Then click Genie/Import Client Files, and point to that file.
At that point, you will have two instances of that one dataset shown as two clients with identical names. (It does not add a (1) at the end like Windows does for duplicate files.) Next edit the client and rename the last name and/or first name in a way to indicate the date or the purpose of the session, f.g. “9-6-17, added Speech Rescue to P3”.
After that, detect or connect to the aids and make your intended changes. If you ultimately make more changes than planned, after ending the fitting, disconnect and edit the client name again to reflect a proper description.
If desired, you easily build several experiments to test before you even get your MiniPro out of the box, and try them all out in the same hook-up session.
