Never heard of the SuperMAX mod before! But it doesn't look like it's easy to get... Who knows where they come from? Not a good sign if you can only get it on eBay once in a while. :|
Available for sale:
-Chamber of Sounds Jupiter III (mk1) & Jupiter T (mk1)
-The Complete DX7- Howard Massey (with original enclosed sounds on soft disks)

Hi bassplayer1980

I seem to remember that the Supermax was only available for the DX7Mk1.

So....you wouldn't happen to have an extra Supermax card lying around would you?

(And is Supermax the prequel to E!? Is it from Grey Matter Response?)

Look on ebay, ive seen them pop up from time to time. Im not 100% sure who made it, not the same people though. Heres a link to the manual if youre interested in the functionality. It really does change the dx7 into a much much better instrument

Many thanks for the SuperMax manual! I will be looking out for one of those cards on the auctions.
The E! IMHO was way ahead of it's time and opened the door to the workstation era and I thank GMR for their work.
(Grey Matter Response...what a name!)
