Reloading Patches for a Roland D-10

Post by D-10lover » Sun Apr 15, 2018 3:25 pm

After 11 years in storage, I'm trying to set up my Roland D-10 for my grandson to play with. Although both the original patches and M-256E memory card are still functioning, I figure it's past time to change batteries then reload the patches for both. I have the patches on Yamaha MDF1 midi filer disks, but the filer itself won't work anymore. I got a Roland UM-One mk2 usb-midi interface thinking I could just download patches and transfer, but can't find any info on how to do that from a Windows 10 computer. The only thing I can think to do is to change the M-256E battery, transfer the D-10 patches to the memory card, change the D-10 battery, then transfer the patches back. I'd lose my memory card patches in that process, but can't seem to find any other info. I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions?

Get MIDI-OXfor your computer, it can do sysex transfers.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
