I have Roland JX-305, I believe it it a lot familiar to MC-505. I also need info on how to Backup&Restore whole user memory via SysEx. I know it is possible to do this using Smart Media Cards, but these are so hard to find and even if you find,they are so overpriced comparing that you pay $50 for 4MB. Or $2 for 4 Floppy's,that are still best Media for MIDI.

I am using Roland JX-305 with Yamaha QY300 Sequencer. And I would like to use this Sequencer just for User Memory Backup of JX-305.


: Hi,

: I have a problem with my MC-505 OS (1.04).
: It seems to be losing memory. I just have 12K left (which means I hardly can save any new patterns, while just a fraction of my user patterns is used). I'd like to do a data dump (sysex send and receive) to my PC. I tried every freeware program around and I seem to be able to dump the data to my PC, but I can't send it back to my mc-505. The error messages are: MIDI buffer full and checksum error. Does anyone have a solution for this problem? Thanx!
