Re: Custom-built multi-bank Roland M-256/M-512 memory cards

Received my cards today :D Although It's a good thing us Dutch have our own version of Santa clause as I already got myself a D-05 for Christmas (quickly running out of holidays/excuses). Fitment in the Roland D-70 is spot on, fits fine without any issues. Formatted the RAM card, copied the interna...

Re: Custom-built multi-bank Roland M-256/M-512 memory cards

Just saying. ;) Whoa, yep, you gals and guys are killing us! 100 of 120 cards sold over the weekend :shock: I'm going to hold off on sending out invoices for the time being, until I know how many workin...

Re: Custom-built multi-bank Roland M-256/M-512 memory cards

Quick update: I have about 70 (and counting) fully assembled and tested cards in stock right now, successfully gone through a few test orders with selected people, and jojo and I are preparing to start accepting orders very soon, probably this weekend, so get your PayPal accounts ready! :D You may a...

Re: Custom-built multi-bank Roland M-256/M-512 memory cards

After these 20 cards, do you have an estimate when the next batch might be done? I'm pretty sure the demand for these is much larger than just 20 pieces... (I'm also pretty sure I won't be able to get one from this first batch, as I have a baby arriving next month...) I have another 100 cards waiti...

My smartphone likes to do a number on those colors ;) Most of the other photos (the wire one for example) had been taken with my DSLR which is a lot less garish.

Re: Custom-built multi-bank Roland M-256/M-512 memory cards

Quick update: I sat down for final manufacturing and testing this weekend (glueing a piece of wire under the slide switch actuators to support them and prevent them from breaking, personalizing the cards into 8x512 or 16x256 and testing them before they go into individual anti-static bags), and with...

Yeah, I'd be interested too, but please let me ask you to start a new thread about it - this one is cluttered enough as it is ;)

Re: Custom-built multi-bank Roland M-256/M-512 memory cards

I'll just leave this here: http://dojoe.net/images/mr-120x.jpg 120 cards, fresh from the assembly house. Next steps: Testing, some final assembly steps, setting up a sales channel (i.e. a website and PayPal link ;) ). I should maybe procure some sticky printable shipping labels too :lol: I'm on vaca...

I haven't done the maths yet so can't tell anything, but it will be roughly in the 60€..100€ range.

Re: Custom-built multi-bank Roland M-256/M-512 memory cards

Hey all, just a quick update! I dropped the boards and parts at the assembler last Friday. They have quite a backlog right now so the cards won't be finished before end of June, but that's okay because I'm going to be out of the country until then anyway ;) I'll have to go through testing all those ...

Re: Custom-built multi-bank Roland M-256/M-512 memory cards

how about providing it as a build-it yourself a kit? At least for me, as I am capable of assembling myself too. ;) No, sorry. That would be a lot of extra hassle for packaging the kits, providing documentation & support, offering multiple options during ordering, predicting the necessary stock of a...
