:o wow that would be amazing!

I don't know if "need" is what it is. There are a few sounds on it I really like, and it would be very cool to have a "virtual" one to re-create parts of some older tracks I'm remixing.

What would be very cool is to know which of the sounds have velocity multi-samples, and round robins (if any).

Some stuff remains unknown since I did not know the exact parameters used on the device back then
And now you can decrypt all the parameters used in the samples headers?

Do you think you could do the same for the Alesis SR-16?
And for Alesis HR-16 is not interested?

As I said just one sentence before that:
Sadly this project was never finished, I still don't have an RX-5
Nothing changed about that, that's why I released the project as-is in case it's useful to someone.

It is a pity...
As far as I can understand your code, I decrypting more parameters.
But some parameters are still not understand to me.
