I understand this topic is almost als old as the iphone but I want to give it a shot anyway. Downloaded the sets by Stepaphane Pigeon and am very keen on getting them into my XV3080. When I send then by midi-ox or GetIn the synth reacts. Messages are recieved, but nog changes are made in my synth. This has probably to do with it being a strange kind of midi and no sysex. Is there anyone who has these files in Sysex? Or knows how to translate the files into a format the XV3080 can read?

I am working with my old XV3080 again and want to send a user bank to it with patches written for the (in)famous SR-JV-80-04 card vintage synth but my machine doesn't respond. I can send the midi but inside nothing happens. I have the files in a .mid format and I am thinking that exactly that might be the issue. anybody any ideas on how to solve this?

These are the files I am talking about:

They appear to be MIDI files, so load them into a sequencer and play them into the XV3080. The sysex is buried in the sequence. It's a common way to load patches without requiring the user to figure out how to send sysex files.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

I have to ask but do you also have a SR-JV40 card installed in the XV3080? I thought that any patches written for a particular SRJV card also requires you to have that card installed in order to access card data specific to that patch.

Is your XV on the correct MIDI channel embedded in the files? Is sysex receive enabled?
