Not exactly sure what these sounds are as I don't own the SY55 so if anyone knows can you please update this thread?

Thanks for these. I haven't tried them yet but as I'm currently dusting off my SY55 for possible sale (damn my lack of TARDIS) I'm rediscovering all of its unique character.

Here's a patch list for anyone interested:

Recently stumbled on this web utility. Works in the browser and claims to show or verify a .syx files contents.
http://llamamusic.com/super-jx/SysEx_Ve ... a_v1a.html

Ive not tried it. But there is a list of synth supported.

That's a useful page -- bookmarked for future reference.

That said, it doesn't handle much Yamaha kit (though its Roland coverage is pretty comprehensive) and it only goes as far as identifying the make/model and MIDI channel of the intended recipient, not patch names. There's actually a fair bit of complication involved with doing that in a general way (I'm sure Derek would know this only too well from his x.factory work). I wonder whether MIDI 2.0 makes this easier?

Aha. well I landed on that link from another page which claimed it was a utility to 'see syx file contents'. But as you rightly said its just some basic info. Still I have many .syx patch files that I have no idea (over the decades) for what synth they are.

I don't know if it's true for sure . . .

But the details might be in a SysEx string INSIDE those files?

open them in a TEXT editor (Not a WP) . . . . (Can't remember what the Basic Mac one is . . . )

I know there are Manufacturer Pre-fixes, but maybe there is instrument designators there as well . .

But you need to know what those ARE . . . :roll:

Wouldn't that be handy? :lol:

Im not an SysEx expert - I do know back in my teens I read a lot on it and wrapped my head around it.
25+ years later when I look at my MIDI DATA manuals now it looks like algebra :D

But ok my Q then: When you say open the (?) patch .syx in a TextEditor (TextEdit on Mac) what will I see?
On that utility-weblink it shows/states that Device# can be seen. Is not that an instrument identifier - eg what synth that -syx file belongs to or was created in?

At some point in the future I do want to try to send some syx patches to my SY35/MICRON, but I have a long list of 'music-admin' things before that. Plus I have a lot of TG33 patches from 90s but it seems they wont load into SY35 (from reading info here and other forums).
So, I might just go the long haul and try to identify what waveforms I used in the TG33, find the SY35 equivalent and try to recreate the patch.

<SysExJohn> is probably the best one to guide you here . . .

He knows far more about this stuff than I do . . . .

I'm sure he'll be along shortly . . . . ;)
