Re: A bit about SysEx (restored).

Just a note:

Watch out for the MidiQuest software from SoundQuest. It's a very mighty sound editor/librarian software for more than 700 synths. Maybe worth a try...

Re: Begging for ROMS

Shouldn't they at least have the ROM image still in their archives? Maybe Dusty Miller can find it? I don't think that Yamaha would 'set them free' even if they'll find it somewhere... remember the troubles we had with the EX5 firmware update - Yamaha wasn't very helpful at all... and I doubt the r...

Re: Begging for ROMS

I've never seen a 1.30 Seq ROM in the wild, so as Miks suggested, maybe a typo on that website given there is no entry for release date. Hmmm - but on sy99.com they mention this: Seq-ROM v1.1 to v1.2 : During Pattern (PTN) recording, "PTN REC CANCEL" (SHIFT+STOP)-function does not work wi...

Re: Begging for ROMS

You're right Sonus 8O

I know this site for a long time but didn't notice that there is a 1.30 version of the Seq. ROM.

Count me in for the hunt :wink:

Main ROM ... Seq ROM ...


Thanks Sonus - Main ROM is 1.57, Seq. ROM is 1.20 8O

Could it be the '1.30' is a typo...?

Re: Begging for ROMS

Jepp - wait a moment, I'll dig for it on my other computer - I'll be back! :wink: Edit: took me a while to find it - but what's puzzling me is a text file saying IC 101 (Sequencer ROM) is Version 1.2 instead of 1.3 8O Is there a way to find out what Sequencer ROM version really lives in my SY99? Per...

Gentlemen, awesome news, we have success! I received Brian's burn of Mik's CPU data to the HD6475328CP10 Chip, combined it with the EPROM data of Mik's that I burned & tested previously - and voila' - SY99 upgraded from 1.40 to 1.57 ! WOOW - this IS indeed great news! (Y) ((i)) ((i)) Well done,...

Re: DX7 firmware upgrades (all models)

1. Would you recommend using pins like this or something else to connect to the DX7 logic board? I might just try scrounging something from an existing motherboard or I/O card I have lying around. Well - If I were using one of these battery holder pcb's I would take (a) short piece(s) of massive wi...

Re: DX7 firmware upgrades (all models)

Many thanks, Miks, it worked! Successfully upgraded from 1.3 to 1.9. Excellent - glad you've got it working (Y) The test program showed "29v" which I think means that the battery is at 2.9v not 3.0v and needs to be changed. If the battery voltage drops below 2.8 volt the battery should be...
