  • Isn't it weird that the cheap little TD6v brain has 100 kits and ....

    ..... a bazillion cool sound patches that none of the other more expensive modules have? Is there any way to borrow some of the patches off the TD6v and copy them to a TD10, TD12 or TD20?

    Unfortunately, in a word, "No". Roland modules don't have the capability to import sounds if that's what you mean by "patches". However, a patch is sort of a combination of the actual sound source (sample) and the programming information assigned to it.

      of course, the td6v wasnt cheap or little when it was released, it was the middle class brain, with Roland's usual pricing.

        Yeah, that's a bummer. How about a 3rd party soft ware setup that can import samples and save them in a bank? Would that work?

          There's no such thing, at least as best I can tell from your question.

          Your only option is to record each of the "bazillion cool sound patches" as a straight up audio file using any of the usual recording software bundles. You then use something to trigger those samples.

          But you won't "import" them onto a newer Roland module.
