QY70 & QY700

Unread post by squishmusic »

This question is for QY70/700 owners.
I have some Floppy disks with 'QY70 bulk dump data' I wish to recover.
My MDF2 is currently out of action/under repair so I am thinking to buy a QY700 for sale locally (guy says the drive is functioning).

If I load up my FD's in the QY700, connected to QY70 MIDI in, will I be able to:
1. directly via MIDI load the QY70 bulkdump data from the disk in QY700 to the QY70 or is the 'architecture' of the QY700 different?

2. Load the QY70 bulkdump data into the QY700 and have songs playback fine (they are almost identical in sounds right?)

Thanks all for info/ links

ok to be clearer:
#1 refers to using the QY700 disk drive to get data from disks DIRECT to QY70 via MIDI
#2 refers to if I can just load the QY70 data from FD into the QY700 to playback with the QY700 song mode.

CHEERS! :music-guitarred:

Are there any, at all, users in here still knocking out songs on a QY-sequencer?

I haven't seen this topic before. Did you solve this?
If not, I may be able to help. I have an MDF3 and a QY70.

Hi mate! I did solve it by getting (after a long debacle) a working MDF2. Im still transferring the MIDI data to my QY70.
I am getting lazy though so I hope the MDF2 wont die on me...I even got a second QY70 in case one dies! :D
But, so far, so good. Cheers!
