HOW TO TRANSFER MIDI & SYSEX FILES TO HARDWARE SYNTHS LIKE ROLAND JD800, JP8000 AND OTHERS
Normally producers use a Sequencer/DAW to transfer a MIDI File to their Hardware Synthesizer. First, you have to connect the Hardware unit to your MIDI Interface via MIDI Cable. Then drag & drop the MIDI File to you DAW and hit ‘Play’. After some time the transfer should be completed.
Additionally, the synthesizer`s manual also will contain detailed information about where to place the presets and load them.
Here are some tools that can be equally helpful:
Bome Send SX (WinOS only):
MIDI-OX 7.0 (WinOS only):
BobbyBlues SysEx tools (WinOS & MacOS):
MIDI Quest 12 (WinOS & MacOS):
If you don´t have a DAW, you can download one for free:
Presonus Studio One Prime:
In most cases our products (e.g. soundsets and presets packs) contain a detailed installation guide, if the presets based on the synthesizer, need to be placed in specific folders and of course, which version of the specific synthesizer is required to use the soundset files. Otherwise, the developer`s manual of the synthesizer always shows how it`s own preset handling works and can be used.
