I am so glad to see this thread recently active! I too have a DX7II with Grey Matter mod that is not working. Replaced battery, load sounds from cart, sounds like robots and forgets patches after power off.

I am under the impression that the re-initialization process is tricky but I have not been able to find the procedure - found it for DX7 but not DX7II.

So I guess that I am asking for the same info as previous posters. If you could help me out, that would be great.

Thanks

I am so happy I found this for him!

So I am yet another one with a Grey Mater Response card on a DX 72IIFD… I, too, do not have the Grey Matter system disks.

This was my main instrument back in the day and I programmed hundreds of sounds for it… The whole setup really relied on the Grey Matter expansion as well. It would be a dream come true to be able to play on my old synth again.

Good morning Miks,
I purchased a DX7 IID with expansion E Grey Matter.
Unfortunately the instrument has a low battery and has lost all settings.
I replaced the battery, but I don't know how to restore the sounds of the Gray Matter card.
Can you kindly tell me how to do it?
Which files to use and which software to use to reload the original setup.
Thank you very much and best regards.

Hello,

I also have the Grey Matter installed on my DX7 ii FD. Seems the battery was changed and I will need reload the Grey Matter sounds, most of the Grey Matter patches are in various symbols. I do have the original cartridge that came wit the ii FD when new.

Can someone provide me the disk images of the Grey Matter kit?
