Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

Currently, we are experiencing some DNS problems. We hope to fix this as soon as possible.

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Converting two JD-800 .mid banks: need help, please

need a bit of help because it seems I don't find a way to do it by myself.
Do you remember those two JD-800 banks that Francis Rimbert shared a long time ago?
Well I have them, but in .mid format.

I don't have a Roland JD-800 but I have a JD-990, so they aren't directly compatible.
I use the JD-990 Patch Organizer and it opens .syx banks.
There is also a JD-800 to JD990 Bank Converter but, again, it opens only JD-800 .syx files.
So I'm not able to use these two banks.

I looked for some free midi-syxex format converter but the ones I tried fail to convert them correctly: the banks are partially empty, those few slots have names screwed and don't sound at all.

Anyone that can help me, please?
Perhaps a JD-800 is needed to save the banks directly in .syx format?

Thank you in advance

Indeed I found the JD-800 bank midi files on the same Rimbert's site.

Thankyou, indeed we are not so happy in Italy nowadays :wink:
Sending P.M.

All the best :)

I checked them and found some interesting patches that can be useful for my projects.

Indeed I expected more real JMJ sounds in it and less ugly ones (probably made for the jazzy albums ;) )

However thank you again Willem! :)

The problem with converting .mid banks to .syx ones still exists,
because I have some other ones... not JD800 only.
Any idea I could do the conversion?
