FOXPRO LOADING and how to go about it!
You got a cool Foxy, but you don’t know how to load
the sounds? Well, if so read this OR simply buy my DVD
and I will show you step by step! This article will
help you the easy way, the easiest way I can explain.
I decided to put this on the site due to a few
This article applies to the following:
Here goes, first you
need to download this FREE software from Foxpro, it’s
the LATEST SOFTWARE ( Dated 15-3-2009) and is great to
load your own sounds.
Click this link to download NOW!!!!!!!!!
Ok, next, now that you have downloaded that above
software, look at your computer
ALL PROGRAMS – You will see a link called
Now go to
COMPUTER and create and open a new file called
Now go to your sounds on your computer then right
click on all your sounds you have and copy each one
and paste them in the new
file you have just made. REMEMBER all your sounds need
to be MP3 format, if they are not they wont load to
the Foxpro callers.
Right, now – connect your FoxPro with the patch cable,
connect it to your USB port on your computer and the
other side to behind your battery holder. Then you
will see a little ICON at the bottom, it will pop up,
just watch as you connect your Foxpro watch the bottom
right of the screen.
Go to your
PROGRAMS index and open that
file, it will say
CLICK YES, after it saves your sounds it will
open the Foxpro software to allow you to load sounds.
Now you will see this in front of you.
When you open it your end you will see your FOXPRO’s
sounds in the right block, it shows blank here but
yours will show sounds.
Look at the right side, it says
DEVISE and it will be
on “C”, normally you will need to go to H. Then
when you open
all your sounds on your Foxpro caller will run
up the RIGHT HAND BLOCK. All your sounds in
SOUNDS folder will appear on the LEFT side. Now
you can work as it tells you, INSERT, or MOVE UP, MOVE
want a sound from that left block DOUBLE CLICK on it,
and it will appear in the RIGHT side. So, carry
on and arrange your stuff as you wish. Play with this
loading page and play around, within 5 minutes you
will have mastered it easily, it’s very easy to use.
You can shuffle the sounds and form your own custom
list; I call it
“wiggle and jiggle”
just move the sounds till you are happy!
CALLER, after it runs across on your screen and
is finished click
BINGO !!!! KLAAR!!!! GOOI !!!!! You can also click on
LIST, that will print out your sounds and you
can stick it behind your remote to look good. Here are
a few lists on some of my callers
This is an idea of labels at the rear of the remotes.
The original Foxpro labels will look more uniform and
will be black and white.
SETTING THE REMOTE – FURY, FX5 and SCORPION
TAKE NOTE, if you want a Fury, Scorpion and FX5 you
will need to set the remote to be able to
“talk to your machine”,
you just do this once and never again unless you
change more sounds to the Foxpro caller. But after the
machine is loaded with sounds you need to program the
remote so they can talk to each other so to speak.
See a display of my remotes below
As you see this photo – left is a regular416B , FX3
remote, it don’t need to be programmed to correspond
with the caller, But the Scorpion ( centre) and FX5
right, however must be programmed. These two remotes
have a BIGGER window with sounds and other info shown
so they need to be set to correspond with the caller,
just do it once and that is it.
The FX5 – Scorpion – Fury have a screen that lists a
clock, sounds, battery metre and a bunch of other
stuff, so it needs to be set to correspond to the
caller, the FX3 you must remember what sounds are at
what number, unlike the others that tell you on the
screen, example 004 – Crazy Critter and 020 – Nutty
Nuthatch or however you have programmed them, when you
order it new they are already set and require no more
attention from your side – UNLESS you change your
HOW TO PROGRAM THE REMOTE;
Here goes again, ok –
on the side of the unit it has an
put a patch cable in it and into the side of the
remote, put on the remote and push the selector knob
once, the next move is to switch on the Scorpion
inside the unit with the tiny round red switch and you
will see the TRANSFER OF SOUNDS TO THE REMOTE taking
place, when done, ( watch it scan across left to
right) pull out plugs and put of Scorpion – DONE!
ON / OFF switch shows at 12 o clock above the red wire
in the photo, I love this caller, for more on these
callers click and see here below!
ok now put the patch cable in the
on front of the caller ( SEE TOP PHOTO) and the other
end in the side of the FX5 remote. Turn on the FX5
remote and push the selector knob once, and then push
the DOWN arrow on the FX5
and at the SAME TIME turn the FX5 on. Watch
it again transferring data and then when done take out
wires and put off caller – DONE!!!!
NOW we DON’T have a patch cable to work with, turn on
the remote and the caller, scroll down to
Configuration, click on it with the selector
knob, and follow what it says- Look for
SOUND LIST, then it says check if Fury is on
and are you sure to transfer data, simply scroll down
and push once on the selector knob. You will see again
it runs slowly left to right across the remotes
screen, when done it will tell you and simply put off
everything. When programming the remote for the Fury
make sure that the remote is within 50cm of the
caller, otherwise it can’t read the data given out of
the Fury caller. So, that’s it - done! KLAAR very
You only have to program your remote once to
correspond with the caller, unless at a later stage
you again change your sounds, the time that the unit
stores your sounds before it needs to be re set is 100
hundred years, so we have no trouble in worrying about
Foxpro FX3, the front is
very similar to that of the FX5.
The FX3 is possible FOXPRO’s best seller ever - 32
sounds, remote and as normal comes with all the sounds
you will need, simply tell Joe to load all my sounds
for jackal / lynx hunting. They have GREAT African
THE CABLE TO LOAD THE SOUNDS IS SUPPLIED WITH THE NEW
Foxpro FURY remote, this unit it TOTALLY different to
the other callers.
My personal opinion is if you can buy the FURY it is
cheaper than a FX5 and far better! This caller is so
advanced it far out ways other options that you may
buying; the Foxpro Fury is the KING of all electronic
2009- Sounds I will suggest for jackal and cats are;
Scrub Hare Distress
ALL FOXPRO’s Jackal Sounds
This is just an idea, but Joe will know to put these
on, if you buy a FURY you get a ton of sounds with the
caller, and it can load 500 sounds in total.
This hunt we shot 12 jackal and a cat in 2 hours
before the rain, the FURY works well! You can see it
next to my hand, the unit is lovely, see more here ;
When you buy a Foxpro, it is all loaded already and
ready to go hunting, it is only if you change the
sounds that these above steps need to be done
I personally load my machines with a standard system,
so no matter what caller I am using, the pre sets are
all the same, I have the first 4 sounds on all my
callers the SAME! So, no matter what remote I use,
they are the same programmed sounds.
etc, etc, etc, etc
This is a standard
feature on all my callers, it helps block out
load all the remotes with different sounds I will get
confused, this way I don’t need to think!
Below to end is just a photo taken from the shop; it
shows one of my displays with a few Foxpro callers on
sale as well as hand calls 4 sale.
Shown are the FX5, FX3, Scorpion, Fury and an older
