The easiest (and cost efficient) method for working with Loksound decoders is to go to their site and download / install the LokProgrammer software. You can go into all the different pages and make all the changes and settings you want.

Granted, without purchasing the actual hardware, you can't write any of those changes to your decoder, BUT .... 

You CAN go to the menu bar at the top and select "Show Changed CVs". It will then give you a list of all the CVs you changed (by moving sliders and checking boxes) including all the index CVs. You can then take that list and enter them manually using your DCC system. Just be sure to enter them in the same order they are displayed.

You can do exactly the same thing with JMRI for ALL the brands and models of decoders it supports, unlike the LokProgrammer software which only supports ESU decoders.

Like the ESU software, JMRI runs just fine without any actual hardware attached. Go through the panels and make your changes, then go to the "All CVs" pane and sort to put the ones that were changed at the top of the list. Then just manually make the changes to your decoder.

EDIT: Reworded for clarity.
