OS disk for GEM Equinox

Unread post by jrosand » Thu Feb 21, 2019 11:46 pm

I am looking for a source for finding an OS update disk for a GEM Equinox synth I just got from the Guitar Center. I have found the owner's manual and Service manual for this synth. I however cannot find a source when I can update the OS for this synth. I am assuming that General Music has long since gone out of business. Any assistance would be very much appreciated.

Hi jrosand, welcome to the forums :)

The company themselves are still in business although not sure if they would be able to help with an OS update for the Equinox...fantastic keyboard by the way!

Try their contact details here https://www.generalmusic.com or drop them a message on their Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/generalmusicco ... 6695671872

I still have the OS disk images for the GEM Equinox. (all 3 models (61/76/88)

Each GEM Equinox has its own disk image:
  • Equinox 61 | 111000eq61.zip
  • Equinox 76 | 111000eq76.zip
  • Equinox 88 | 111000eq88.zip
If allowed here, I can upload these images or send them via e-mail.
The files aren't that big (a little over 1MB each)

Hi Mercurion, you should be able to upload those images as attachments. If you can it would be very much appreciated (Y)

I've attached the latest OS images for the GEM Equinox. (all 3 models), including the instructions.
All files were downloaded from the General Music website (when it was still online)

In short:
- you need to download the appropriate image for your specific model (number of keys)
- unzip the contents and copy it to a floppy disk
- follow the steps described in the installation document
