    Looking for some help...
    I have a TD10 and would like to save my patches (custom and factory). In order to do this I believe I can upload (or download, depending on your perspective) into a computer. I have an old 486 laptop in my basement collecting dust but it still works. Is it possible to copy patches into my laptop? If so, what would I need, cabling and software-wise, to make it happen? Thanks

      a sound card??!?!? he said it was a LAPTOP.

      MIDIMAN has a parallel midi interface.

      all the pcmcia midi interfaces I have found require windows 95 as well as some of the parallel and serial ones as well. you might be better off getting a $300 laptop off ebay and being able to run all the new software. A 486 trying to run windows will be slow and you never really could get a sequencer to run with any kind of performance at all.

      I just paid about $375 and got a 233MMX dell with a 4GB hard drive/cd-rom/floppy/usb and 96MB of ram.

        Why not just get a memory card? It is a lot easier to carry around.

          And cheaper at around the going rate of $75.

            Well just shoot me why don't ya? . Sorry, I read laptop but wasn't thinking laptop.

            A 486 trying to run windows will be slow and you never really could get a sequencer to run with any kind of performance at all.

            I am using a 486-66 (not a laptop) for patch backup (in addition to a M512E). I don't use the PC for anything other than patches, and agree that going beyond patches could be a painfully slow or impossible.

            For patches, a memory card is the way to go - reasonable, portable, efficient and reliable.

            On the PC, chances are you could find someone willing to give you a 486 or get one for $15-50 at a yard sale (still need a midi cable though). It's fine for patches. You might get a low end Pentium that way also.

            If you have some $$ and want to do other things with the PC, Animal's recommendation is a must. You'd really regret skimping on PC power.[/B]
