If you have more than 24 setlists, the amp will randomly select 24 from your list and delete the others.

- Perform a firmware update to 2.0 or higher by powering on your Mustang GT while holding down the main Encoder.
- Follow the steps here to access the Cloud Presets folder on your Mustang GT.
- Navigate to the Fender Presets folder in the Cloud Presets section on your Mustang GT. The newest factory presets are available at the end of the list. Click on any preset you wish to download.
