Full back up in Strike Multipad

Hello
I will be touring using the Alesis Strike multipad as the main part of my set. My initial idea was to ask for a rental one in each city and I thought I'd bring my configuration in a usb pen.
After doing a Back up I have seen that the resulting file weighs very little so I understand that neither the sounds created by me or those edited within the Strike MP are not saved in the back up.
Is this correct? is there any way to load my complete configuration, including own sounds?
Any backup method that allows me to replicate my strike in another strike?

Thank you

There is a method, Simply name all your sample with very basic names, save them to the root of a USB for easy importing on the new unit. Once you have all your samples imported to the new unit, then use the back up file you made to restore the kits and settings.

I have done this a few times to test when I first initially got the unit.

Good luck my friend!

Thank you very much for your advice.
It would be great if the machine did it automatically, selecting the external sounds and internal editions used in each program.

I think (fingers crossed) that once the software editor becomes available, the backup function will be available. I say this because in its current state, the SMP isn't seen as a mass storage device and therefore can not export all of the information saved to the unit, and only the settings saved to the internal memory.

Once they make a change to way the drive is read by the software, it should be an easy add on.

This is all hopes and dreams, but its a logical step.
