CZ-101 Memory solutions!!!!

I have a CZ101 that I love to death but I want to stomp on its ugly interface every time I attempt to save a patch only to find it gone a week later. RA-3 cartridges are all but extinct it seems, I've heard of software patch libraries though, does anyone have a recommendation for a good Mac-based one? Or perhaps some other method for saving patches...?

Some guy on a CZ board was talking about cloning the RA-3 cartridge. Lemme see if I can find the link.

A friend of mine did the following... he put an adaptor for iirc 3 AA batteries instead of the 6 big batteries. Apparently, that is not enough to power on the synth, but it´s enough to retain the internal patches.

Cheers.

Thanks for the replies, very helpful. I'm curious about the battery thing - I'm able to retain patches for a matter of hours or days sans batteries. Long term internal storage needs batteries though, it seems...? I worry about remembering to change the AA's using that method. Externalizing seems like the best way, I was hoping for something along the lines of that RA-3 clone, if that is indeed possible.

Here´s a topic about the battery mod.

They´re supposed to last 9 months or more, so if you back up once in a while, I can´t think of any reason why you shouldn´t try it.

Cheers.

Hi,
Thanks gmeredith,
Tested a 64-patch CZ RAM cartridge schematic with a one RAM chip HY6264. Only exception is inverted signal necessity from cartridge slot 6 pin as CS2 inverted as it goes in this schematic to IC2 pin 26. The schematic is like to EZ-CZ cartridge schematic for 4x16 patches, I thought.
