Default External Midi device question. help.

I'm using PTMP 7.0 for MAC OSX with external MIDI device "Roland MC-307 Groovebox". I am strictly using this device as a sound generator and nothing else. So far I have configured and connected everything properly to receive sound in PT!

Here is my problem: I cannot switch to different MIDI sound banks! I only have access to the first one. I click to open the PATCH SELECT BOX, I go to CHANGE, I select my Patch names: and I get the following message: PRO TOOLS COULD NOT FIND APPROPRIATE PATCH NAMES IN THE CURRENTLY SELECTED PATCH NAME DOCUMENT BECAUSE EITHER MANUFACTURER/MODEL INFORMATION OR INSTRUMENT MODE DO NOT MATCH.

I don't get it, I set up everything right in the MC-307 (Slave mode, Local TX Off) And in PT I added the MC-307 in the Midi Devices successfully! Why is it still saying the patches can't be found? PLEASE HELP ME OUT!

It must be something simple...

I take it you've got the "Roland MC-307.midnam" file on your hard drive?

Then you created a "MC-307" in your Audio MIDI Setup application?

And you used the drop-down "manufacturer" and "model" menus (in Audio MIDI Setup) to properly label the device?

Then from there, you created a MIDI track in Pro Tools with your MC-307 as the output destination?

After that, I'm not sure... like I said, it must be something simple that's been overlooked.
